    I have received and read this book as part of the Virtual Blog T

    I have received and read this book as part of the Virtual Blog Tour with Pump Up Your Book. As with any book in a series, you appreciate the characters and their stories more if you have read the books together rather than as a stand alone. This book will also be much more enjoyable if you know the history from Book One first. I am certainly glad I read BEFORE THE SCARLET DAWN, but this book would still be enjoyable without reading it.

    In BESIDE TWO RIVERS, the story begins with Darcy, the daughter of the main characters from BEFORE THE SCARLET DAWN. Darcy is now a grown woman and is struggling with her ties to her Aunt and Uncle who raised her in America and her familial ties to England. It does take a bit of time to get into this story, but at about the half-way point, the story-line becomes intense which made for a faster read all the way to the end. After many obstacles, you are anxious to see how Darcy perseveres.

    This second book in the series had a little less historical information in this book due to the Revolutionary War being over, but much more descriptive characterization of both the people and the places in the story. The author certainly knows how to paint a picture with her words. Her use of the language and protocol/manners from the time period were also well done. I for one am thankful to have lived in this century. I'm not sure I could have bit my tongue as often as Darcy did!

    I adored Darcy and was pleased with the woman she had grown up to be. She was much like her mother, even though she was away from her for most of her growing up years. I loved her spunk and was inspired with how she handled her fears and problems. Again, Gerlach weaves faith in God throughout the story without it being over-bearing and preachy. It is just the right touch to remind the readers of where we need to turn in our trials as well as our triumphs.

    Even though not everything is tied up with a pretty bow in this story, I still appreciate the way it ended and leads me to be anxious for the third book in the series that will focus on Sarah, a character from BEFORE THE SCARLET DAWN. This third book, BEYOND THE VALLEY, is planned to debut in February 2013.

    Romance, Secrets and Forgiveness = Great Read

    Rita Gerlach in her new book, “Beside Two Rivers” Book Two in The Daughters of the Potomac Series published by Abingdon Press takes us into the lives of Darcy Morgan and Ethan Brennan.

    From the back cover: A tale of love won and love lost, and the faith to find it again.

    From the banks of the Potomac to the misty moors of England, Darcy follows a path where the secrets of the past slowly rise to the surface. She meets Ethan Brennan, an aspiring English horse breeder, who embraces her independent spirit and marvels at the simplicity of her faith.

    Ethan and Darcy fall in love, but are kept apart by a promise to another and a sworn oath to a dying woman whose long-hidden secret threatens Darcy’s and Ethan’s lives.

    You know I think it is entirely possible that Rita Gerlach has a time machine in her basement. This is how she is able to describe these wonderful scenes where you feel as though you are there watching the event instead of reading about it. Ms. Gerlach does a wonderful job at bringing historical events to life while weaving in the fictional aspects of the story in a seamless flowing pattern. I commend Ms. Gerlach for all the research she had to do to before she could begin writing. Thank you for all your efforts as they clearly shine through in your writing. ”Beside Two Rivers” is the story of the romance between Darcy Morgan and Ethan Brennan. Ms. Gerlach makes you care for all the characters and their journey. Then there are secrets and promises that threaten to keep the two of them apart. They have to learn how to trust God and each other to deal with these issues so that they can let go and embrace their future. It is watching all of this happen that is just plain fun and exciting. Well done Ms. Gerlach. I look forward to the next book in the series.
