Did you know that in the founding days of America many citizens were persecuted because of their religious beliefs?

Read about this period of American history in the historical series, Tapestry of Love. Inspired by true events, these three books take you back to the time when our founding fathers who were immigrants from many countries, began to build new lives and a new country. All historical events actually took place on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland in the 17th century. Each book has an appendix at the end that delineates truth from fiction and sources and would make great gifts for history lovers or those who want to learn more about the early days of America. The descendants of the family depicted in these novels eventually settle in Alabama.

The series consists of three novels which are available in Ebooks as well as Paperback:

Ribbon of Love

Faith and Courage



This was a good read which allowed imagination to soar in the development of the first colonies of the US. Donna did an enormous amount of research in order to provide accuracy for her readers. I look forward to enjoying development of the story and hope that Donna takes it all the way through to present time.
Great work!

I just finished this book and loved how the historical accounts were validated in the end of the book. The author did a great job in taking these accounts and creating a beautiful story. Loved it so much I just downloaded the next two books in the series!
