Head to Colonial Connecticut where unexpected adventure catches the Ingersoll brothers by surprise—and brings unexpected love into their lives. Nathaniel has his sights set on becoming a master figurehead carver, until he risks everything for a woman. Jonathan’s merchant trade and his new love are in jeopardy from a brother’s animosity. Micah expects to settle down to peace after a life of fighting on the frontier but finds a young woman hiding from an abductor. Alden is press-ganged into tending an ailing naval captain, then catches sight of the captain’s fetching niece. Will the unexpected end in four courtships?
Award-winning author LAURIE ALICE EAKES has always loved books. When she ran out of available stories to entertain and encourage her, she began creating her own tales of love and adventure. In 2006 she celebrated the publication of her first hardcover novel. Much to her astonishment and delight, it won the National Readers Choice Award. Besides writing, she teaches classes to other writers, mainly on research, something she enjoys nearly as much as creating characters and their exploits. A graduate of Asbury College and Seton Hill University, she lives in Texas with her husband and sundry animals.
Carla Gade has been imagining stories for most of her life. Her love for writing and eras gone by turned her attention to writing historical Christian romance. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Maine Fellowship of Christian Writers. An autodidact, creative thinker, and avid reader, Carla also enjoys genealogy, web design, and photography. A native New Englander, she writes from her home in beautiful rural Maine where she resides with her “hero” husband and two young adult sons. You may visit her online at carlagade.com.
Lisa Karon Richardson is an award-winning author and a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Influenced by books like The Little Princess, Lisa’s early books were heavy on creepy boarding schools. Though she’s mostly all grown-up now, she still loves a healthy dash of adventure in any story she creates, even her real-life story. She’s been a missionary to the Seychelles and Gabon and now that she and her husband are back in America, they are tackling new adventures—starting a daughter-work church and raising two precocious kids.

What was your motivation behind this project? Carla Gade approached me with the idea of 4 brothers all pursuing different trades in Colonial Connecticut and centered around what was then The Great River, now the Connecticut River. My first series was set in Colonial America, so I jumped at the opportunity to team up with Carla, LaurieAlice and Lisa.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? As my tagline states, I write real life empowered by faith and share faith-based history through story. I love to share the faith foundation of our roots in America in the hope that people today won't forget the origin from which we came.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? One of my characters had another character spread some false rumors about him, and he had to work hard to disprove the lies. I experienced that myself with someone I thought was a friend, only to find out she'd betrayed me in order to get what she wanted. It took a long time before I could "clear" my name of the lies. The success of my hero only made my own eventual success
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Tracie Peterson, Tamera Alexander for authors. And I always use a Bible verse for overall inspiration on the themes in my books.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This team had a lot of fun working together, and some of us might team up again in the near future, so stay tuned!
