Start the New Year with 2 fabulous books!

Nancy Coffey Literary knows how to start the New Year off in literary style. Check out 2 of our latest titles (both historical!), the first about the Civil War (book for young readers), and the second the conclusion to a thrilling and romantic historical family saga.

At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.

Young readers who like their fiction filled with exciting historical details, rich characters, and action-packed adventures will be drawn to The Storm Before Atlanta.

Buy copies at B&N, Borders, IndieBound, or Amazon.

The stunning conclusion to the Blood Rose trilogy.

Daisy Etheridge always yearned to sing. But along the way she fell in love, had her heart broken, and bore a child to a man who loved another. Now she has a second chance to realize her dreams.

Jack Wilkins left his family's ranch three years ago with his childhood love, only to lose her. Now, he's back to try and win her one last time. Then a woman from his past appears...with a baby that has eyes like his own.

Now, Jack and Daisy must choose what they want out of their lives-and out of each other.

*And make sure to check out the first 2 titles in this trilogy: the award-winning titles PIECES OF SKY and OPEN COUNTRY.

I love Civil War history, the first book reminds me of an old favorite of my Rifle's for Waite that I read many times as a child.

Always looking for reasons for me and my 13 year old avid reader to have meaningful discussion! And these books sounds lovely.

Omigosh! That first one looks like a great companion to "The Drummer Boy of Shiloh!"

Nothing like being entertained and educated at the same time. Sounds great, especially for kids!

These books sound awesome!

Oh, historical fiction with a female protagonist. You were my fave before high school (Harry took the top spot after that). It's been too long, and these books sound awesome.

I am new to this blog (found it on Confessions from Suite 500), and also have a new blog, The Flying Cheetah. I'm working on a following and have posted about the contest:

Was trying to figure out how to follow, and realized I already am a follower. Sometimes I worry myself.

I LOVE historicals, especially pioneer historicals. In fact, for Christmas, I got the old Time-Life The Old West series, all 26 volumes. And it was the best give ever! (Except for the Kitchen Aid mixer I got a few years ago.)

Both books sound fantastic. Great way to start off the new year.
