Meet the Author

History and real-life narratives have always blended in Graham’s imagination when researching her family’s ancestors. Eventually the engaging voices of characters who might have lived emerged. Tracing paper trails quickly gave way to creating her own stories, and she hasn't looked back since.

Currently, Graham still heeds the call of those characters’ voices as she writes Voices Echo, the third novel in her Voices historical fiction series.

    Clean except for brief profanity. - Good for Book Club discussion

    Other than brief profanity this was a great book for Young Adults and Adults as well. A great book for a Book Club discussion. - Hopefully, the further series will not add further profanity.
    The plot focuses on four 'family' groups and, approximately, three crew members. The story portrays the friendships developed on board and types of activities created to help pass the time.
    Although there was not as many trials as some voyages experienced, they did have a couple of trying situations.
    This was quite well-written and clean except for a few brief uses of profanity.
    I look forward to reading books in the continued series.
