As the world prepares for a second Great War, a woman imprisoned in Europe puts pencil to paper to record a time in her youth, forty years earlier, when she bore witness to similar happenings in a distant land...
Florida, 1896:When Mary and Abigail find themselves in the small town of Loggerhead, they believe they've discovered an ideal paradise in which to have a three day holiday featuring good food, relaxation, and indoor plumbing. The idyll is shattered, however, when Abigail falls victim to a jewellery thief. After quickly capturing the bumbling larcenist, and recovering the stolen jewellery, the young lovers attempt to resume their vacation, only to find themselves embroiled in an ever-escalating, interrelated series of crimes that include rape, robbery, murder, and a political conspiracy reaching to the highest government office in the state.-As a young woman suddenly exposed to a multitude of conflicting philosophies, Mary could easily become lost in her personal struggle to discover who she truly is. Fortunately she has the beautiful, impulsive Abigail not only to help guide her but steady her as she finds herself encompassed by evil at every step of her journey of self-discovery.

Review:

"Loggerhead . . . is a bizarre love story, one that is morally challenging . . . The story takes place in Florida during the late 1800s. The memory of the South's defeat in the Civil War is still very fresh. Peters portrays a unique perspective through the eyes of Mary, illuminating the enduring civil unrest of the era. The dialogues move the story; the Scottish dialect and word usage of the time are written eloquently. The heroine is gifted, loving, yet touched with violent, uncontrollable tendencies. She is a one of a kind character." - Readers' Favorite

"Peters steeps this yarn in period detail . . . the narrative moves along briskly, and the scenes are well-staged when jawing turns to fighting. Mary makes for an intriguing heroine: naïve, awkward, mannish, yet entranced by the more assertive Abigail . . . Readers will find themselves rooting for this Valkyrie as she mounts up for battle.  A lurid, improbable, but rousing saga of a love that dared not yet speak its name."  -Kirkus Reviews
