The Westward Sagas tell the story of the Mitchell family’s 100-year odyssey west from Pennsylvania to Texas. In Adam’s Daughters: Book 2, Peggy Mitchell, a survivor of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, grows up in Jonesborough, Tennessee during the tumultuous first twenty years of the nation’s existence. Though haunted by memories of war, she matures into a strong, independent young woman who is courted by Andrew Jackson and who has a freed slave as her best friend. Her younger brothers and sisters become her surrogate children and students. Together the children of Adam and Elizabeth take on renegade Indians, highwaymen, and the hardships of an untamed land.
Adam’s Daughters reminded me of one of my favorite books, The Yearling by Marjorie Kennan Rawlings-hardship, drama, survival, compassion, and historical relevance. ~ Harry M. Fife, Jr., Past President, Texas Society of the American Revolution
This is a book you can really sink your teeth into! Engaging characters and a fascinating story make the world of Adam’s Daughters lift right off the pages and into your heart. ~ Karen Roth, Author of Found on 16th Avenue and My Portion Forever
