Elizabeth Stewart was born in the wilds of Maine in 1836. When tragedy struck at the age of three, she and her mother soon moved to Boston, her mother’s childhood home. There they lived with her uncle, a wealthy businessman. Elizabeth wanted for nothing. At the age of nineteen, having graduated from one of the best finishing schools, she needed to decide what to do with her life. She longed for a challenge. She had often wondered about her father, a man she hardly remembered. One morning while reading the local newspaper, she discovered an advertisement for a school teacher in Bradley, Maine, her birthplace. Was this an omen? Elizabeth applied for the position and soon found herself on an adventure like she had never experienced.

Originally from Maine, having lived there most of my life, I am now retired and live in Florida. I have been married to my best friend for 44 years and have one grown daughter. I taught elementary school for thirty-three years. I am an avid reader. Historical fiction is my best-loved genre. Some thirty years ago my mother began to research the history of the town where I was born. She encouraged me to write a novel based on her research. I told her perhaps when I retired. Bradley, Maine is located only 12 miles from Bangor, Maine. In the mid-1800’s, Bangor was considered the lumber capital of the world. I chose to write about life in a typical Maine town during that time period. This is my first attempt at writing a novel. It has been a most enjoyable experience. I dedicate this book to my mother. I think she would like it.
