Sanctuary Bay, a narrow bay between steep cliffs on the northeastern English shore, has provided a haven for centuries. A grand manor house, Meriweather Hall, is set atop one cliff, and those who live in the village and the manor have always had their lives intertwined. In the days after peace has come to Europe with Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo, hearts and faith will be challenged. In Sanctuary Bay, both will find a home.
Time moves slowly in Amish country, but as the seasons unfold, love touches hearts and makes dreams come true. Look for Amish Seasons books -- Summer Promise and Autumn Grace -- starting in August 2013 from Berkley.

Porthlowen, a cove along the northern shore of Cornwall, has seen men go down to the sea in ships for generations. Men fishing, men trading the metals torn from the earth, men going to war. The small village set within the protected cove has weathered gales and wrecks. Overseeing it all is the great house named Plas an Mor. Seldom does anything, not even the war against Napoleon, upset the turning of the seasons until one day when a small boat with a precious cargo challenges the hearts and faith of those who call the cove their home.
