FreeHearts: 2nd edition A Novel of Colonial America (Tapestry of Love Series Book 3)


  • This is a must read for anyone who wants a true view of what colonial life was like in the 1700’s. Each book’s writing gets stronger, characters become real, the struggles and sorrows that laid the foundation for this country. I hope that each reader will come away with a deeper love for our country and our ancestors.
  • I love reading about this era, the comments of Mary Jane when she lost her beloved husband were so spot on, it really brought back the exact pain & thoughts I experienced when I lost my husband. I can’ t imagine what it was like back there with so many children, being a woman with no say in the business. Waiting for the next one to see how the Cottingham children do taking care of the parents plantation.
  • This is the third of Donna’s novels I have read! Each one just makes you want the next one more. Just waiting now for the next one!

  1. Some of my husband’s ancestors from Lineville, Al probably did and are actually related to the Washington’s.
