About Kathy Fischer-Brown

As a child Kathy wanted to be a writer when she grew up. She also wanted to act on the stage. After receiving an MFA in Acting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts and playing the part of starving young artist in New York, she taught theater classes at a small college in the Mid-West before returning home to the East Coast, where over the years, she and her husband raised two kids and an assortment of dogs. During stints in advertising, children’s media publishing, and education reform in the former Soviet Unions, she wrote whenever she could.
Her love of early American history has its roots in family vacations up and down the East Coast visiting old forts and battlefields and places such as Williamsburg, Mystic Sea Port, and Sturbridge Village. During this time, she daydreamed in high school history classes, imagining the everyday people behind all the dates and conflicts and how they lived.
Claiming her best ideas are born of dreams, Kathy has written a number of stories over the years. Her first published novel, Winter Fire, a 1998 Golden Heart finalist in historical romance, was reissued in 2010 by Books We Love, Ltd., which also released Lord Esterleigh’s Daughter, Courting the Devil, and The Partisan’s Wife.
When not writing, she enjoys reading, cooking, photography, genealogy, playing “ball” with the dogs, and rooting on her favorite sports teams.

Review by: J.Q. Rose on Sep. 29, 2018 :
Because of the authors thorough research and lovely language, the vivid locations and characters come to life on the pages of this story set against the background of the American Revolution in 1776-77. The separation of Beth Van Alen from beloved husband leaves her to struggle and overcome many hardships. The authors take their time setting the time, place, and characters in this novel, but once that was done, I was caught up in the story. If you are a historical fiction reader, you will enjoy the "old" language and culture in this sweet novel.

Review by: Sharron on Sep. 18, 2018 :
A story with current relevance in the grand tradition of historical fiction. Mohawk, French, American, and British characters find themselves in transition and conflict. Each individual is challenged to learn and grow to survive. Beth, from a learned, comfortable background, marries out of her culture, and must take on responsibilities and forge alliances that ensure her family's successful immigration into a new land. A romance with intelligent, detailed, and rich vocabulary that provides insight into each culture and Canadian history.
