Dody Myers

A book about Colonial Georgia Historical Romance

Dody Myers' historical novel is an inspirational story of courage, love, and faith. Set in 1742 Georgia, this is a story rich with characters drawn from history and the lore of the Golden Isles.

Tabitha Plummer leaves her Creek mother and village to celebrate her birthday with her English grandparents in Savannah, Georgia. When disaster strikes, Tabitha is placed in the home of a wealthy family at Frederica as an indentured servant. She realizes she must forge a new life for herself and embraces the white world and the Christian faith. She never imagines that someday she will be forced to choose between two cultures and her love for two men - Broken Arrow of the Cherokee Nation and Ian MacDonald, a Scots Highlander from Glencoe, Scotland.

After leaving Scotland for the promise of free land in Georgia, Ian MacDonald takes service with a Savannah clockmaker and becomes secretly engaged to Charlotte Brunner, the clockmaker's beautiful daughter. But Charlotte's disapproving father arranges to have Ian shanghaied and shipped to Darien, Georgia where he joins an elite company of Scots Highland warriors.

When Spanish forces mount an offensive against British held Georgia, the Carolinas in their sights, the Highlanders join General Oglethorpe at Fort Frederica to help stem the tide of war. The ensuing battle changes Ian's life forever as he is forced to confront death, his prejudice against Indians and his growing attraction for Tabitha with her mixed blood heritage.

Tabitha finds herself in love with the Highlander but he talks openly of his commitment to Charlotte and his plan to return to Savannah to claim her.

Tabitha's dilemma grows when she leaves Frederica to act as an interpreter for General Oglethorpe and returns to the Indian village of her childhood with Broken Arrow as her guide. Broken Arrow offers Tabitha marriage although he knows she loves another. Should she remain in the white man's world with a love denied, or return to her Indian heritage and a promise of love?

Frederica Summer is a rich, rewarding novel that evokes a special time and place in the history of our nation.
