Giveaway: A Newfound Land by Anna Belfrage
As part of the virtual book tour for Anna Belfrage's novel, A Newfound Land, Passages to the Past is hosting a giveaway for one lucky reader!
A Newfound Land is the fourth book in Belfrage's very popular series, The Graham Saga, but it can be read as a stand-alone. But be forewarned, you will want to back track and devour the first three books after you read it!
A Newfound Land was compared several times through out the tour to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. Check out what reviewers are saying about A Newfound Land and the Graham Saga:
"Wonderfully balanced and delightfully authentic, A Newfound Land more than lives up to its predecessors, sweeping readers off their feet and into the next chapter of the Grahams' exciting journey." - Erin, Flashlight Commentary
"A Newfound Land will surprise you by taking you unaware and pulling you into its pages and by the time the cover closes you will find yourself an Anna Belfrage fan for life." - Shannon, The Most Happy Reader
"If you love historical fiction with great character development then The Graham Saga is a set to start on from the beginning" - Erin, Hook of a Book
Publication: November 1, 2013
It’s 1672, and Matthew Graham and his family have left Scotland. Having taken the drastic decision to leave their homeland due to religious conflicts, Alexandra and Matthew hope for a simpler, if harsher, life in the wilds of the Colony of Maryland.
Unfortunately, things don’t always turn out as you want them to, and the past has a nasty tendency to resurface at the most inappropriate moments. Both Matthew and Alex are forced to cope with the unexpected reappearance of people they had never thought to meet again, and the screw is turned that much tighter when the four rogue Burley brothers enter their lives.
Matters are further complicated by the strained relations between colonists and the Susquehannock Indians. When Matthew intercedes to stop the Burleys from abducting Indian women into slavery he makes lifelong – and deadly – enemies of them all.
Once again Alex is plunged into an existence where death seems to threaten her man wherever he goes.
Will Matthew see himself – and his family – safe in these new circumstances? And will the past finally be laid to rest?
A Newfound Land is the fourth book in Anna Belfrage’s time slip series featuring time traveller Alexandra Lind and her seventeenth century husband, Matthew Graham.
About the Author
I was raised abroad, on a pungent mix of Latin American culture, English history and Swedish traditions. As a result I’m multilingual and most of my reading is historical – both non-fiction and fiction.
I was always going to be a writer – or a historian, preferably both. Instead I ended up with a degree in Business and Finance, with very little time to spare for my most favourite pursuit. Still, one does as one must, and in between juggling a challenging career I raised my four children on a potent combination of invented stories, historical debates and masses of good food and homemade cakes. They seem to thrive … Nowadays I spend most of my spare time at my writing desk. The children are half grown, the house is at times eerily silent and I slip away into my imaginary world, with my imaginary characters. Every now and then the one and only man in my life pops his head in to ensure I’m still there. I like that – just as I like how he makes me laugh so often I’ll probably live to well over a hundred.
I was always going to be a writer. Now I am – I have achieved my dream.
