Few people are fortunate enough to have a book dedicated to them. Earlier this week, I learned that I was one of those fortunate few. Author Aubrey Hansen chose two people to dedicate her new novel, Peter’s Angel, to. I was one of the two. Here is my half of the dedication:
to every fear
and always reminding me
has a plan
To you is the character of Nathan warmly dedicated.
Aubrey’s kind and beautiful dedication means a lot to me, and I look forward to owning the special book that contains it. I read and enjoyed two earlier drafts of the novel, but haven’t yet had the chance to read the final draft, which has had some big changes since I last read it.
Soon my copy of the book will arrive, and now you can own Peter’s Angel, too. Aubrey has been working on this novel for years, calling it her masterpiece, and it is finally finished and was released today.
Here is what Peter’s Angel is about:
In the wake of a lost War for Independence, Peter Jameson, a young colonel, struggles to protect his tiny patriot state of Rhode Island from the oppression of New Britain, the wealthy British duchy. When New Britain invades and attempts to seize Rhode Island’s newly-discovered mine, Peter finds himself leading his small cavalry against the massive British army. But war becomes the least of his worries when his own men kidnap him and hold him for ransom. Facing certain death, Peter is freed by a mysterious boy who vanishes without leaving his name. Indebted, Peter determines to find his "angel" and reward him. But his rescuer has a secret of his own—he is the exiled rightful heir of New Britain, and he will do anything to keep from being found.
I hope you will join me in reading Peter’s Angel. It is available in paperback and as an e-book.
