ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Hi, I'm Amber, but my friends call me Tiff, short for Tiffany, my first name. I am in my 30's, married the love of my life in July 2007, and live in beautiful Colorado just east of the Front Range of the Rockies, but I love to travel and visit new places. Ultimately, my dream is to own horses and live in a one-level rancher or log cabin nestled in the foothills of the mountains. For now, I will remain where I am and do what I love—design web sites and write.

Amber's very first book, Promises, Promises, released in February 2008. It's a historical fiction set in Delaware during the Colonial period and the Great Awakening. The other 2 books in the series are this current one, Quills And Promises (July 2008) and Deceptive Promises (December 2008). In 2009, they will be repackaged for a state set entitled Delaware Brides. She has also sold another series set in historical Michigan during the Industrial Revolution. The 3 books in that series will begin releasing in May 2009 and will be repackaged in 2010 as Michigan Brides.


ABOUT THE BOOK

-- Separated from Madison when he leaves to fight the French and Indians, Elanna Hanssen must choose between her heart and her head, especially when Madison's integrity is questioned. --

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not until thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." ~Proverbs 3:5-6

Innocence paired with wisdom beyond her years. With these traits, Elanna Hanssen unwittingly captures the attentions of Major Madison Scott. Her honest desire to understand the war fascinates him, and he resolves to get to know this perspicacious young lady better. When his military duty separates them, they begin a correspondence, cautiously baring their hearts to each other. Elanna has never known emotions like this before, but she is drawn to the integrity she sees in her major. Wh a local news reporter questions the major's credentials and activities, however, will she allow her heart or her head to rule? Can true love grow over such distance and around such obstacles?

In July, I did a review of the first book in the series Promises, Promises and just loved it. This was one of those books that I sped through. Click here, to go back and read that review as well as some other information about Amber. Right now, I have been reading this one Quills & Promises while substitute teaching and that has been a bother because I cannot just read through it as quickly as I would like! Imagine the students have questions!! So, if you'll excuse me, this is one that I must see if I can finish tonight and get you a review either later tonight or tomorrow.

Margaret, that's too funny about students actually having questions. I've been there so many times. I chuckled that your work is interrupting your reading time.

Hope you can finish the book soon and post your review. You've been a fantastic support. Thank you for the spotlight!

One of the best parts about reading during the "two minutes per class" that I almost do accomplish is the kids asking about the books, and then going and saying "hey mom, my teacher she was reading this book..." Especially the 10th and 11th grade girls. *Grin*
