A Place in His Heart: A Novel (The Southold Chronicles)
Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Puritan Barnabas Horton is still grieves the loss of his beloved wife and needs only a mother for his two young sons. And yet these two very different people with very different expectations will take a leap of faith, wed, and then embark on a life-changing journey across the ocean to the New World. Along the way, each must learn to live in harmony, to wait on God, and to recognize true love where they least expect to find it.This heartfelt tale of love and devotion is based on debut author Rebecca DeMarino's own ancestors, who came to Long Island in the mid-1600s to establish a life--and a legacy--in the New World.
When faced with loss, God provides.
Why the author wrote this book:
This novel is based on the lives of my real-life 9th great-grandparents, who sailed from England on a little ship called The Swallow and helped found Southold, Long Island.
