Acknowledgments

It’s an honor to write books and have fans eagerly awaiting the next installment. Thank you to all of my readers!

Thank you, Margo and Brian, for your unwavering enthusiasm and interest.

I couldn’t ask for more ardent fans than the Ladies of Somerset. Thank you!

To my dedicated, wonderful editors, Caroline, Gary and Denise at BubbleCow, thank you for helping me see plot holes and ways to enrich my story.

Thank you to everyone who has helped spread the work about the Banished Saga. A big Montana thank you to all of the wonderful internet book bloggers, especially Charlie, Punya, and Kayla. Thank you!

Finally, thank you to my family. Your endless patience as I discuss random historical facts, lose the thread of a conversation because my mind has wandered to a new plot point, or I disappear to write is priceless. Mil Gracias!

“There is a sacredness in tears.

They are not a mark of weakness, but of power.

They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.

They are the messengers of overwhelming grief,

of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.”

- Washington Irving (attributed)
