The Apple King

Please join me in congratulating Barbara Anne King on the publication of her newest historical novel, The Apple King! I had the pleasure of helping Barbara design the cover. Here's the book description:

A successful immigrant keeps a shameful secret. Will his past stop him from aiding his birth-country’s freedom?

In 1881, Nikola Markovich’s ambitions took him from poverty in Croatia to pursuing his dreams in America. And despite a rocky start, the determined foreigner finds his fortune in the booming apple business. But years later, his sinful burden resurfaces when he hears word of his homeland’s fight for independence.

As conflict brews in Europe, Markovich can no longer stand by and watch Croatia’s desperate struggle. But when a Slavic diplomat comes to town to lobby for assistance, Markovich is shocked to discover a connection to his hidden disgrace that tears his loyalty in two.

Can the remorseful man put aside his checkered past and help his people rise from the ashes of war?

The Apple King is a riveting standalone historical novel. If you like morally driven characters, multi-generational stories, and epic struggles for justice, then you’ll love Barbara Anne King’s inspiring saga. 

The Apple King
 is available in ebook and print editions on Amazon, and you can add it to your shelves on Goodreads.
