The Hero of Her Redcoat – Henry Bedlow

04 May

After I picked Fort Michilimackinac for my story’s setting, I decided my hero should be a British soldier. But what kind of British soldier would be a good hero for my story, since the British lost the battle? I decided on a reluctant soldier, one who had been forced into the army. Henry Bedlow is a bookish London-raised man who finds himself at the edge of civilization in 1763. He’s woefully unprepared for life at the fort – or much of anything else. But he can read and speak French. Those two assets will lead him to a life he never expected.

To celebrate the release of The Backcountry Brides Collection, including my story, Her Redcoat, I’m giving away one of my signature shawls. Today the area around Fort Michilimackinac is known for its beautiful lilacs. One subscriber to my newsletter will win Northern Lilacs, my handspun, handknit wool shawl on May 31, 2018. Subscribe today to be entered!
