Promise of Deer Run

Elaine Marie Cooper

The year is 1790 and the American Revolution is long since over, but a battle still rages in the hearts of survivors. Painful memories of war haunt one young veteran. He still waits for a father who never returned from battle and feels the sting of betrayal from a former love. Withdrawing into his own world, he clings to one hope — perhaps his father still lives.

Only one person in Deer Run seems to understand him — nineteen-year-old Sarah Thomsen, who struggles to bury her own war memories. The veteran’s search for his father touches a chord in her, as she feels the loss of a father she never knew. While the couple begins to find hope in a mutual affection, others are determined to destroy it. Slander and misunderstandings ignite a fire of doubt and mistrust, destroying any faith they had in each other.

Can two souls longing for healing and trust love again? Can faith — and family — be restored?
