free for the last time


from tomorrow onward, and for the last time ever, I will give away free copies of my historical novel "Ann Angel's Freedom" on amazon. The promo lasts from the 30th of August to the 1st of September. Tell as many of your friends as you can, and if you download it yourself, please leave a review.

Here are some more informations:
At the end of the 18th century, living on a rich farm like the one of the Waldmann family means lots of hard work and little time for privacy. Still, as long as Adam is working near her, Ann Angel Waldmann is happy. However, everything changes when her father decides to buy their freedom and starts a lawsuit to get it. How can life change for the better when Adam starts courting her mother?

This novel is based on the true history of the Waldmann family. It covers the time from 1799 to 1803 in the area of Osnabrueck, a time of world-wide changes. Beside the everyday worries about friends and families, people of the rural community have to cope with the results of the first and second Napoleonic wars. Even if they aren’t involved yet, war casts its shadow over the peaceful village.

US-Author Holly Lisle judged the book like this:
"Ann Angel’s Freedom is an amazing, beautifully researched, well-written tale of a world and a time far different from our own, but one that still resonates with the struggles we all face today. I found myself suffering with Ann and those she loved, hoping for her, and in the end cheering with her. It’s a wonderful story, made more wonderful because it’s true."

I'd love for you to enjoy the book. The sequel is scheduled for October.

Great offer, but I don't have Kindle. Is Adam courting her mother a true story?

Yes. You can get a "Kindle for the PC" app to read on your PC. It's quite ok although if you read for long, your eyes will hurt. But if you like the story, you can buy the paperback (a new, cheaper edition is due out before the year is out).
