England, 1783. A voyage across the Atlantic does far more than deliver Elisabeth Hale to post-Revolutionary Philadelphia; it lands her squarely in the path of steerage passengers David Graham and Liam Brock.
Disparate characters all, the three establish an unwavering bond of friendship, love, and loyalty—until Elisabeth is forced to make a choice—a choice that will shatter their lives.
She’s not of his class, not of his religion, and not in his plans . . . will she fill his future as she fills his dreams?
A refreshingly original saga set in late eighteenth-century Philadelphia, Voices Beckon spans seven years in the lives of David, Elisabeth, and Liam, three young Britons who cross the Atlantic in search of a new beginning. Rich in historical detail, this sweeping romance chronicles their coming of age against the vivid backdrop of the developing United States of America.
