Shiloh Valley

Please join us in congratulating Doris Dumrauf on the publication of Shiloh Valley! Anna had the pleasure of assisting Doris with a developmental edit and a copyedit, and Jenny designed the cover. Here's the book description:

A powerful depiction of the choices we make in pursuit of our dreams and the sacrifices we bear to make them a reality

Rhenish-Bavaria, 1849: Revolution is sweeping across the province, changing the lives of three young people from different social classes forever.

Desperate for freedom and adventure, and trapped in a profession he hates, nineteen-year-old Martin Dupree eagerly joins the rebels. When his own father causes the revolution to flounder, Martin turns to America for deliverance.

Katrin Weber, adored by Martin but betrothed to a man she does not love, boldly leaves home to strike out on her own until a tragedy suddenly ends her hard-won independence.

Drafted into the rebel army, Katrin’s brother Nikolaus wants nothing more than to return to the comfort of his small family farm. But life has other plans, forcing him and Katrin to likewise seek their destiny in America. It isn’t all milk and honey, as the America of the 1850s is breaking apart over the question of slavery, forcing the young immigrants to make difficult choices.

From the vineyards of the Rhine Valley to the banks of the Mississippi, from rebel skirmishes to the battlefields of the Civil War, Shiloh Valley follows their quest for freedom and struggle for survival.

Shiloh Valley is available in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Doris's website for more information on her books and her photography.
