Denise Weimer is a first-time guest on the podcast, but she's a long-time author, and it was my pleasure to welcome her to the show this week. Her new book is A Courageous Bethrotal, and we talk about how early settlers kept the pathers away, the real-life woman she based her heroine on, and the challenges of writing a novella. Patrons will hear about her love of old houses and what inspired it.

A Courageous Betrothal by Denise Weimer

A wounded lieutenant, a woman fierce enough to protect her family, and an American Revolution with everything at stake. 

Red-haired, freckle-faced, and almost six feet tall, Jenny White has resigned herself to fame over love. Possessing the courage and wits to guard her younger siblings against nature, natives, and loyalists in Georgia’s “Hornet’s Nest” gives life meaning until she meets scout Caylan McIntosh. 

From the time Jenny nurses the young lieutenant back to health after the Battle of Kettle Creek, she can’t deny her attraction to the vexing Highlander, who seems determined to dismantle her emotional armor. But when Georgia falls to the British and Caylan returns to guide Jenny’s family on a harrowing exodus into the North Carolina mountains, will his secrets prove stronger than his devotion? Or will their love be courageous enough to carry them through the battles ahead?
