The plantations. The Underground Railroad. Chancellorsville. Vicksburg. Gettysburg. Little Round Top. Chickamauga. Chattanooga. Missionary Ridge. The soldiers in the field. The families at home. The nurses in the hospitals. The speeches at Richmond and Washington. The prayers in churches North and South. It’s all here in one of the most dramatic series ever produced. A new story by a different author released every two weeks between April and November. Join us for one of the most exciting events in American inspirational publishing – Helping Hands Press presents CRY OF FREEDOM!
Renée Harris and her husband Coleman are wealthy plantation owners in war-torn Virginia during the year 1863. When her husband and son join the Confederate Army, Renée must contend with life at “Rose Hill,” all on her own. She struggles with devastating grief and the hardships of war and must elicit the aid of her trusty slaves to get by. During Rene's moment of deepest despair two miraculous events occur that will eventually restore her faith in God and give her strength to go on with her life.

I was born in Washington, D.C.and currently reside in Arlington, Virginia with my sister Roanne, two cats and one cockatiel. My fascination for the Civil War originated from my mother who grew up in a quaint town near Appomattox. Two of my gg grandfathers fought for the Confederacy, one of whom died at First Manassas. Another great grandfather fought for the Union at Antietam. As a child, I read Bruce Canton’s “A Stillness at Appomattox” and became thoroughly hooked on the Civil War! My other interests include music (all kinds), trains, art, historic architecture, classic films and literature, interior design, genealogy and animal welfare. In short, I love all things bright and beautiful, all things old and wonderful…

Murray Pura invited me to join the “Cry of Freedom” project after he'd read a brief memoir which I posted on Facebook. As a first-time author I'm deeply honored to be included in this incredible series, among so many talented writers. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Murry Pura and Helping Hands Press for making my life-long dream of becoming a published writer come true.

    This is the story of Renée Chastain Harris, a woman who lived at

    This is the story of Renée Chastain Harris, a woman who lived at Rose Hill Plantation, Virginia during the Civil War. The year 1863 was going to be a difficult year for Renée with her husband and son away fighting in the war. 

    People who know me will attest to the fact that I’m not easily impressed. But Joette Baldwin did it!—she impressed me with her rich descriptions that spoke to my imagination. After I finished this story I felt like I had been back in time and met the people at Rose Hill. I had cheered for Renée in her glorious years and wept with her in her moments of sorrow. 

    I think Joette gave us a good look at how life for ordinary people could have been during the Civil War.
    Well done, Joette!

    ¿Sheltering Arms¿ by Joette Baldwin is the author¿s debut novell

    “Sheltering Arms” by Joette Baldwin is the author’s debut novella and it is a spell-binding read from its opening lines
    (“1963 Deep in the bosom of southern Virginia lies a moldering headstone. It rests beneath the sheltering arms of a
    purple Magnolia and bears the name Renée Chastain Harris.”) to its surprise, heartwarming conclusion. This poignant
    story of a Civil War wife and mother who faces heartbreak with bravery is told in lyrical, dreamily beautiful prose that
    mesmerizes the reader and draws them into the heart of Renée Chastain Harris’s Prince Edward County, Virginia world.

    By the end of the story, we feel we know the characters as old friends and family members; indeed, the narrative is based loosely
    on the author’s own Old Dominion ancestry. The May 1863 drama at Chancellorsville plays out nearly one hundred miles distant
    from Renée’s small farming community. But in ways unforeseen, that faraway thunder changes forever the lives of Renée,
    her husband Coleman and son Burke.

    Journey with Joette Baldwin into a long-ago land of passion, heartache, beauty, and love eternal and be forever changed by
    the experience!
