Releasing in May of 2020, Pegg’s story, Worth Fighting For, is set during the beginnings of the Revolutionary War in Philidelphia, PA. Alexander Ogilvie is the third son in a family of blacksmiths. His ambition lies in moving west and helping to settle the Kentucky wilderness. Meg McCracken’s brothers – and her father – are gearing up for the war with England. She searches for a blacksmith to make their soldier kits. She doesn’t expect to find a handsome man with dusty-gold hair and an engaging smile. A man far below her station in life. Alexander can’t stop thinking about the fiery-haired beauty who’d entered the family’s smithy, but she comes from a fine family who will hire him but never entertain him. He’s convinced that the coming war won’t change that. His only chance to rise above his circumstances lies across the mountains, and he’s determined to go. But others – including some in his own family – see his goal as an act of cowardice. Alexander and Meg’s paths cross again several times, and in the end, they both have a choice to make.

Henry Bedlow is a soldier in the British army which has taken control there. Laurette knows her father and her Ojibwe friends would disapprove, but when she meets Henry in the woods outside the fort, he’s not the cruel soldier she’s been led to believe that the British all are.

Alannah Fagan grew up learning how to take care of herself in the Kentucky wilderness. But when her mother’s death leaves her with a brutal stepfather, her only hope is escape. Together with Conn, her younger brother, she flees their westbound wagon train with no plan other than to survive. Stewart McCann is the middle son of a northern Virginia family with seven brothers.

But when a battered young woman and her brother take refuge at his Pony Express station, he finds himself in the middle of another type of battle. A battle for his heart.
Pegg learned the art of storytelling at her granddad’s knee. The art was perfected when her son was born. Car rides were always greeted with an enthusiastic, “Mom, tell me a story!” from the car seat behind her. But it took entering the empty nest years before pen and paper collided in her first attempts at writing.
In 2019, Pegg won the Romance Writers of America’s Faith, Hope, & Love Readers Choice Award and was a double-finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award in the Novella category and was a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers Editor of the Year Award.
