As you have heard, my book baby Wait for Me had a birthday release on February 9, 2021 last week. I’ve held it and welcomed it with open arms. It is the last of the series, making it extra special.
One friend commented after she read the end of Draw Me to Your Side, Book Four, “What happens to George?” My sister’s first words about Wait for Me were “Poor George!”
So who is George? The main characters who have the two points of view are Elizabeth and Louis. Yet, George carries a tenuous thread through all five books. Will he betray his kin and the new nation?
I’ve included the first paragraphs of Wait for Me here:
Charles Town, South Carolina, January 1777
Elizabeth Lestarjette tugged at an escaped ringlet. The pull kept her focused on the present news, rather than the what ifs of the past or the speculations about the future.
Her brother’s fevered body struggled on the bed in the caretaker’s cottage. With few options, the hidden room posed as a safe place to sequester George. The fever had raged for two weeks, ever since Christmas Eve. She knew no more than she had on that terrifying night.
No, no, no. You can’t die like this. Not with Louis gone. I don’t think I could stand to lose you now.
You’ll have to read the book to find out about George’s final role!

Is there a literary “Villian” that you like? One that you see some good and want him/her to change?
I have been worried about George since book 4. Somehow it was ok to dislike him and not worry about him when he was away out of sight and on the wrong side of the war. But when he showed up at Elizabeth’s door with gunshot wounds, I felt differently. I don’t usually like literary villains and that makes sense because the author usually does not have their story in the spotlight.
