In Juliet Waldron's Genesee, published by Books We Love, Genesee, Born to a runaway teen and Iroquois Warrior, struggles to find her place, her loyalties eternally torn between two warring peoples. When the American Revolution sets the Mohawk Valley ablaze, will a young soldier’s love prove strong enough to save her?
GENESEE is an extraordinary book about love, hardship and prejudice. It's well written and full of wonderful characters. Even though they have many differences, Genesee and Alexander are true kindred spirits. Ms. Waldron keeps you enthralled by, a little at a time, giving tantalizing tidbits of their origins. This story isn't sugarcoated, which is really refreshing. There are some instances of violence, but they're brief and handled well. Anyone who enjoys an honest, realistic story will love this one.

I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to read “Genesee.” . . . I now understand why this novel won the EPIC award for best historical a few years back.
I've always enjoyed a good book that deals with U.S. History, and this one delivered. . . . Ms. Waldron combines the trying times of the American Revolution with unbelievable conflict and romance that threatens to pull the heroine away from the life she really wants. Honestly, I was right there with Genesee, feeling the emotions, the love, the thrill, the sadness. Kudos to Juliet Waldron for bringing this book back to the readers and giving them another chance. Don't miss it. ~ Ginger Simpson, author of “Hattie’s Heroes,” “Sarah’s Heart,” and “Sarah’s Passion”
. . . . “Interspersed within the story is a finely detailed account of this historical period's farming production, weather, style of dress, political choices, conflict with surrounding Indian tribes, as well as Indian customs, traditions, and beliefs that add to the complex but finely woven main plot.
Freedom rings true throughout this story that offers a transition into the “New World” lifestyle with its expected and surprising consequences. Passion erupts into physical and political birth that will thrill the reader as it did our historical, American ancestors.
This is a novel that deserves wide attention as it commemorates the past and celebrates the universal love that truly creates and evolves into a new generation of united Americans and native Americans. Grandly done, Juliet Waldron ! ! !” ~ Viviane Crystal
