Beside Two Rivers, Book 2 in the Daughters of the Potomac Series Launch, Part 1

Dear Readers,

Within the last eight months, I have received numerous emails and messages from readers telling me they were frustrated they had to wait so long for the sequel to 'Before the Scarlet Dawn' --- 'Beside Two Rivers'. You'll only have to wait a few more weeks before it is officially released on October 1.

Beside Two Rivers continues the story from book one, taking readers on Darcy's journey as she searches for answers regarding her parents. It is also a continuation of Eliza and Hayward's story. 

What you will find in this series are characters that struggle and make some terrible mistakes that lead to terrible consequences. Yet there is always hope, and sometimes it comes in unexpected ways.

Perhaps this describes your own life, or the life of someone you love. So if you are looking for novels with a lot of romantic fluff, this series may not be for you. But if you like stories that are character driven, you will like these books.

I hope you will read Before the Scarlet Dawn, before Beside Two Rivers. The first in the Daughters of the Potomac series, follows Eliza Bloome as she longs for acceptance and leaves behind all she has in order to follow her heart and the man she loves into the Maryland wilderness. What follows is a struggle for survival and a journey of faith.

From USA Today: Rita Gerlach has created an achingly vivid frame on which to stretch the canvas of her new series. Tracing the painful path a life takes when innocence and love are taken for granted, Before the Scarlet Dawn is an artfully hewn tale of romance tempered by fear — and the hope of love, devastated by war.

From Fresh Fiction Book Reviews: Gerlach's novel is an immensely emotional read with surprising twists I never anticipated. Although the ending was far from what I expected, Rita Gerlach has penned a stunning, tear-jerker novel which will touch the hearts of anyone fortunate enough to pick up this delightful book.

My books are available in ebook and paperback.
