Book Three of the Deer Run Saga

Video trailer for The Legacy of Deer Run by Elaine Marie Cooper
Book 3, the conclusion to the Deer Run Saga, follows Dan Lowe, the oldest son of Daniel and Mary Lowe from "Road to Deer Run." It is filled with romance, history and lots of suspense!

Legacy of Deer Run
The Year is 1800
A young man makes weapons for the defense of America, still a fledgling nation. He also protects his heart from the allure of a young woman who seems so far above his station in life that he cannot win her.
The lady fights her own war against loneliness and grief. Despite her finery and airs, she is drawn to the young armory worker, who is distant yet disarming.
Love is not the only entanglement. The nation’s enemies are afoot. They creep within the very walls where America’s defenses are forged. Who are they? When will they strike? Who will survive their terrorism?
Intrigue of the heart and intrigue of the times are only part of this compelling story—Book 3 of the Deer Run Saga. This series finale is a gripping mix of romance and deception, faith and forgiveness, transgression and trial.

This cover is so expressive!

I so enjoyed the Lowe family in following generations from Book 1. Daniel Sr.'s wife, Mary, is my very favorite character, however, her children as adults have been lovingly encouraged and set finely of themselves!

The story is based on the author's own ancestors, setting fictional characters within the time period and researched genealogy. I was fascinated by their clothing, travel lengths/distances, and encouraged by the working together of their families. Legacy of Deer Run begins in the Spring of 1800 and concludes in 1802. I loved the overview of what had transpired while the families were apart from each other, returning with a visit in the second year.

Each story can be read as a stand-alone, as they tell the story of each generation and their growth in understanding and following of the Lord. The importance of honesty and revelation of trust and forgiveness stand out by their actions. I thoroughly enjoyed each story in this saga and recommend them all. Lives portray everyday happenings and the unraveling of disaster and deception. Their character stands out as others attempt to infiltrate their values and belief. I like that who they are is shown rather than told ~ a big difference to model a behavior rather than speak of it. Their lives are real. I like the interaction between generations, especially. Their lives are enriched by close communication and prayer.
