Overview

Inspired by real people and actual events; Ribbon of Love is a beautiful romantic story of colonial America woven within the framework of history.

REVIEW FROM READER: While Ribbon of Love is a novel, I found the history and descriptions to be on target and accurate.

Ribbon of Love was a wonderful love story of Henry and Mary living and struggling to succeed as one of the first families in the colony of Virginia in the 1600s. In addition to the love story, the descriptions of the clothing, home furnishings, personalities, family life, church and community are most intriguing. The exhilarating action and subplots keep the reader in constant anticipation. It is almost impossible to put the book down until completion.

Coming from diverse cultural backgrounds and separated from Jamestown by the Chesapeake Bay, the settlers of 'Ye Kingdom of Accawmacke' utilized the distance to avoid laws and restrictions imputed on early colonists and created an almost utopia existence among the friendly Indians.

Meet the Author

Donna R. Causey, native of Alabama, spent many years in the classroom teaching students with learning difficulties. Once she retired, she finally had time to follow her passion for discovering little-known or forgotten gems of history.

Donna developed the websites www.alabamapioneers.com and www.daysgoneby.me to share and preserve the treasures she found. These websites led to publishing books with her compiled information. Ribbon of love is the first step into the world of fiction with her historical fiction series, Tapestry of Love.

She states:

Facts provided snippets of information into the daily lives of our ancestors and while writing I often imagined and recreated their lives in my mind. After I made a research trip to the Eastern Shore of Virginia and stood on the ground where my first ancestor, young Mary Wilson settled with her husband in 1638, I felt compelled to tell the story of her life. Historical fiction seemed to be the perfect genre since I could use my imagination to fill in the gaps.

I was able to follow most of their life through court records, wills, and deeds and within the framework of historic events, the story of Mary's life with Henry Pattenden began to emerge. While studying the old, fragile paper trails left behind, it dawned on me that I was creating my own legacy through the minor decisions I make each day and my descendants will have the advantage of technological stored data about me. I hope they will be proud of the legacy I am leaving behind.

Ribbon of Love was such a good book.................did not want to put it down. Author Donna Causey did an amazing job of researching her ancestors in order to write such an interesting book. I can't wait till the sequel is released, hopefully this summer. I believe the title is Faith and Courage. With vacation time coming up, I plan to get it on Kindle.
