Across OceansAO ebook

“A beautifully crafted novel and one I would recommend to any historical fiction reader.”
-Tanya E. Williams, Author of Becoming Mrs. Smith

Tragedy, unrelenting guilt, and hostile hallucinations of his dearly departed sister — that’s just typical life for Reuben Radford.

That is until one atypical May Day. In the most unlikely of places — the cemetery of their quiet Hampshire town — Reuben meets Maggie Archer. Quirky and spontaneous, she’s like no other woman he’s ever met. By the time they part ways in a promise not to meet again for a year, he knows she could be the love of his life.

There’s just one problem — Reuben and Maggie’s families have left them both with enough emotional baggage to fill a steamship.

Not to mention one other little complication— Reuben has a secret. It’s not pleasant. It’s not pretty. And it’s one he’s determined to keep buried at all costs.

But if there’s one word to describe Maggie, it’s headstrong. Once she resolves to uncover the truth, she’ll stop at nothing to find it. After all, what does she have to lose? Unlike Reuben, Maggie never believed in love.

Spanning five years of England’s Edwardian era, Across Oceans is the captivating story of first love, lost innocence, and the unexpected moments that change everything.
