Grace of a Hawk
Dove (Book Three)

Abbie Williams


Reaching his remaining family in Minnesota has been former Confederate soldier Boyd Carter’s plan since his journey northward began. Accompanied by his brother Malcolm, the two depart Iowa in the late summer of 1868 beneath a cloud of uncertainty, leaving behind longtime friends Sawyer and Lorie Davis, with promises to reunite in the spring. Also left behind is Rebecca Krage, a woman of quiet passion and grace, whose deep love for Boyd Carter remains unconfessed.

U. S. Marshal Thomas Yancy has been missing since his desperate flight from Rebecca Krage’s homestead. Despite assurance that the Yancys will trouble them no longer, Lorie Davis is not convinced. Her and Sawyer’s recent joyful discovery is soon overshadowed by the arrival of information that Boyd and Malcolm never reached their destination in the North. Somewhere between Iowa City and St. Paul, the two brothers have apparently vanished. Their paths, interwoven by fate, and their collective strength, must again be tested as they face the greatest threat to their lives yet.



Praise

** 2016 Foreword INDIES Finalist - Romance (Soul of a Crow)

"Abbie Williams’s novel enlivens the Restoration years, showing the toll that the war took on both men and women, and the depravity and madness that sometimes arises from the chaos of war and violence. Williams populates her historical fiction with people nearly broken by their experiences: ex-soldiers driven mad, women forced into prostitution, children growing up without parents. The plight of veterans so profoundly affects their experience as a couple that the love story is inseparable from the time in which it occurred, making the novel a good option not just for romance enthusiasts but for history buffs as well." ~ Foreword Reviews

** Independent Publishers Awards Gold Medalist 2015** (Heart of a Dove)

"Set just after the U.S. Civil War, this passionate opening volume of a projected series successfully melds historical narrative, women’s issues, and breathless romance with horsewomanship, trailside deer-gutting, and alluring smidgeons of Celtic ESP." ~ Publishers Weekly (Heart of a Dove)
