THE OLD COOTS: Sam (The White Oaks Series) (Volume 8)

 
9781511734554: THE OLD COOTS: Sam (The White Oaks Series) (Volume 8)

Sam Whitmore hates slavery. Turning his back on his slave-holding family, he purchases a run-down tobacco plantation with the hope of someday making it a success. Freeing Horace and Jefferson, the slaves who came with what he now calls Summerset, they become Sam’s new family... Until the night he meets Ellie Baker and his life changes forever. Ellie believed what Sam believed and upon their marriage, she happily stays in Tennessee to help him make Summerset a success. The first few years Sam’s dreams are realized, but soon after the weather deserts him, leaving a worthless property and a wife who wants only to return home with their two children—to Missouri. The next ten years are prosperous, until the Missouri/Kansas border explodes in violence, a precursor of the coming Civil War. From Missouri to Tennessee, Virginia, Gettysburg, and finally Appomattox, against all he believes, Sam fights for the southern cause—to soothe the burning need for revenge that burns in his belly—and costs him almost everything.

About the Author:

D.L. “Diane” Rogers grew up in New Jersey, with a natural love of horses and cowboys. She spent many hours playing Cowboys and Indians, the Barbie doll ignored. Coming from a family mixed with both northern and southern heritage, she found her love of history, and most especially, the Civil War, she and her cousin giving themselves the moniker of “Yebels.” Each with one parent from the North and one from the South. As a kid Diane loved to read. She read every Nancy Drew and horse book she could get her hands on. That love of reading led her to her writing endeavors of today. Diane currently lives south of Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband, four horses and multiple cats. She has two wonderful children, Eric and Kristen, and five grandchildren.
