SPIRIT OF THE REVOLUTION

Meet Author Debbie Peterson
 
 
Debbie has always had a soft spot for fairy tales, the joy of falling in love, and happily ever after endings. Stories of love and make believe filled her head for as long as she can remember. However, it was her beloved husband who encouraged, cajoled and inspired her to take up a pen and write some of them down.  

Her journey to published author could fill quite a few pages, but in June of 2010, she submitted her debut novel, “Spirit of the Rebellion” to her wonderful, patient, editor at The Wild Rose Press. A few short months after Rebellion’s release, her second novel, “Shadow of the Witte Wieven” was published through InkSpell Publishing. Her third novel, “Spirit of the Revolution” will be released May 31, 2013, through The Wild Rose Press.
 
When she’s not busy conjuring her latest novel, Debbie spends time with the members of her very large family. She also pursues her interests in family history, mythology, and all things ancient and historic.
 

 

 
 
 
The Blurb...
 
 
Only divine intervention could have guided Jolena Leigh Michaelsson to the doorstep of a ramshackle manor in Pennsylvania, bringing her face-to-face with the man she has waited her whole life to find. There is just one problem. Mathias McGregor died two centuries ago…
 
Mathias, Revolutionary War ranger and spy, battles his conscience and his heart when he finds himself falling for the beautiful violinist invading his home. Jolena is mortal and deserves far more than what he as a spirit can offer her.
 
When Jolena’s family motto leads them to unearth a valuable coded message—the very message Mathias died trying to deliver to General Washington—Jolena vows to unravel the mystery surrounding the cryptic document. But someone else wants the message, and he’ll stop at nothing to get it, not even murder.
 
Divine intervention brought them together—will it also allow them to find forever?

 
Now for a taste...


Jo glanced over at him as his voice trailed off. He reined in his horse, who nickered as if to alert, and then took in his surroundings. She found herself following his gaze.
 
The place was familiar to him, of course. Intimately familiar. However, Mathias didn’t realize until this moment, he rode toward it. Not with the pleasant distraction Jolena presented. Normally, when he visited this place, he just appeared into it and then disappeared when the event ended.
 
“Mathias?” Jolena extended a hand and rested it very lightly atop his arm. “Are you all right?” The smile he gave her, didn’t reassure her. He could see that much by expression alone.
 
“Please—tell me,” she begged.
 
He briefly shook his head and once again, put something resembling a smile on his face. “Please don’t worry, it’s nothing, really.”
 
“Oh, I see. You can’t tell me.” She dropped her gaze and withdrew her hand.
 
The notion hurt her. Yet, how to explain without making the situation worse? “This is the—uh, the place we—”

So does the book take place in multiple time periods or does it stay in one time period? I often get confused by time shifts in books...LOL.
