Clear the streets—the Strawberry Festival is this Saturday! Parade is at noon, craft booths, delicious food, free rides for the children and don’t miss the thrill of the soapbox derby! Entertainment includes: country-western singer Lisa Mary and a Toby Keith impersonator, street dancing by the Haulin’ Ellis Band.
I will be there to sign my latest novel. Swept into Destiny which relates the story of Irish immigrant Ben McConnell and his encounter with the spunky Maggie Gatlan. The story opens in 1857 in Tennessee and carries us through the tumultuous years leading up to and through the Civil War.
Rick Barry, best selling author of The Methuselah Project, writes: Catherine Brakefield’s Swept into Destiny breathes new life into the years before and during the Civil
War, a time when unstoppable forces clashed and changed the United States forever. Some of Brakefield’s characters you’ll love; others you’ll hate for the scoundrels they are. But through it all you’ll hold your breath and hope the main characters can survive and find love despite turbulent events swirling around them.
