When I climbed Big Round Top in Gettysburg, PA the winter of 2009, I had no idea that climb would change the course of my life forever. Summer Ray was not in my mind to write. I was doing research for another book. Yet, due to an unexpected fall on that hill, the Summer Ray Series was born. The Unknown Soldiers and lingering spirits reached out to me. Not only is Summer Ray a partial true story of my life, it is also based on true Historical events. This is their story too and together, we brought it to life!
MOVIE TEASER TRAILER
“This Fair and Blighted Land” is the beginning of a fascinating series that follows Summer Ray and Col. McDaniels in their individual struggles to find peace and healing from the past. The author skillfully intertwines the two stories as she blends the present with the past, the physical with the spiritual. In a culture where ghost stories are multiplying exponentially, this book stands alone, bringing together angels, demons, and ghostly Unknown soldiers in a story of evil and good, unbearable pain, timeless bitterness, and ultimate redemption. Through it all, Summer clings to her faith in her ever-loving God, but she can never imagine how the twists and turns of her future will shape her and the future of Gettysburg. This book is easy to start but impossible to put down, and it will leave you longing for the next chapter, the next book, right up to the final climax.“
“As the General was lost in his ever increasing bitterness, almost a century and a half later, the absolution was forthcoming. Summer Ray was consumed in her own world of figure skating competitions, college, her view of the world, past and present, and her ever increasing disdain and contempt of the Confederacy. Yet, the moment would soon arrive when her world would unexpectedly be forever challenged and most definitely transformed and altered, whether Summer Ray Sherwood liked it or not.”
