By Love Divided

Please join me in congratulating Elizabeth St. John on the publication of her newest novel, By Love Divided, Book Two in the Lydiard Chronicles! I had the privilege of offering developmental and copyediting assistance on this sequel to Elizabeth's critically acclaimed debut novel, The Lady of the Tower, and I also designed the cover. Here's the book description:

Royalist Sir Allen Apsley thinks his choice is clear, but when his mother embraces the Puritan cause, and his beloved sister Luce falls in love with John Hutchinson, a Roundhead soldier, his loyalties are tested. Is it family first? Is it country first? As England falls into bloody civil war, Allen must fight for king and country, while Luce embraces Parliament’s radical views and confronts the very core of the family’s beliefs. And when their influential Villiers cousins raise the stakes, Allen and Luce face a devastating challenge. Will war unite or divide them? In the dawn of rebellion, love is the final battleground.

Based on surviving memoirs, court papers, and letters of Elizabeth St.John’s family, By Love Divided continues the story of Lucy St.John, The Lady of the Tower. This powerfully emotional novel tells of England’s great divide and the heart-wrenching choices one family faces.

By Love Divided is available now in ebook and print format on Amazon andAmazon UK, Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Elizabeth's website and blog, where she shares tidbits and photos from her research and travels in her ancestors' footsteps.
