Read full description of the books:
From the villages of eighteenth-century Scotland to the colonies of America, Christine Blevins takes us on a richly imagined, perilous adventure, as one woman seeks the life she deserves...
They called her Dark Maggie for her thick black hair, but the name also had a more sinister connotation. As the lone survivor of an attack on her village, she was thought to be cursed—and unfit for marriage.
Maggie is not cursed but gifted with quick wits, skilled in medicine, and trained as a midwife. Venturing to the colonies as an indentured servant, she hopes to escape the superstitions of the old country, help women bring new life into the world, even in the most primitive and isolated corners of an unsettled land—and find a home of her own.
What she discovers is a New World fraught with new dangers—and, having given up her own freedom to join a people that yearn to be free, she must rely on her talent for survival now more than ever...

Read information about the authorHello!
I am an author who writes what I love to read – historical adventure stories. My debut novel MIDWIFE OF THE BLUE RIDGE (August 2008) takes the reader to the wilds of 18th century colonial America. This story was inspired by information unearthed researching family history.
My latest release, THE TORY WIDOW (April 2009) begins in 1775 in New York City at the eve of rebellion, and is the result of a lifelong fascination with the foundations of American history and the revolutionary spirit.
Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, I now live in Elmhurst Illinois, with my husband Brian, the the younger two of our four children, and the Dude, our very silly golden-doodle. I am feverishly at work on the second novel in my revolutionary war trilogy which is due to be published in the Fall of 2010, by Penguin/Berkley.
