She’s not of his class, not of his religion, and not in his plans . . . will she fill his future as she fills his dreams?
The year is 1783. Passengers swarm the bustling Bristol quay, anxiously awaiting the call to board. David Graham, a Scot indentured for the next six years to a Philadelphia printer, waits among them, as does Elisabeth Hale, a young Englishwoman making the passage with her father, and Liam Brock, an orphaned Scot with a dubious past.
Disparate characters all, the three establish an unwavering bond of friendship, love, and loyalty–until Elisabeth is forced to make a choice–a choice that will shatter their lives.
A refreshingly original saga set in late eighteenth-century Philadelphia, Voices Beckon spans seven years in the lives of David, Elisabeth, and Liam, three young Britons who cross the Atlantic in search of a new beginning. Rich in historical detail, this sweeping romance chronicles their coming of age against the vivid backdrop of the developing United States of America.
