Nowhere But North Release!

The paperback has hit the ground, and the Kindle is locked down for Amazon's release date. It's finally here!

For those who have not yet sampled the delicious perfection that is John Thornton, he has been called "The Victorian Darcy" or "Darcy of the North." While his character is most decidedly unique, formed by very difference circumstances, Pride and Prejudice fans will recognize many similar threads running through Elizabeth Gaskell's classic story North and South.

Not only do we have a stoic, proud hero, but we also have a strong-willed heroine whose determination and intelligence we cannot help but admire. The Victorian era Margaret Hale is no Elizabeth Bennet of Regency times, but they share the same sort of passion in very different personalities.

I have loved spending time with these remarkable characters, and I hope you enjoy them, as well.
