Sea to Shining Sea:

Her reputation has spread beyond California. Is politics her future . . . or something else?

As the election of 1860 draws near and political tensions between the North and South threaten to escalate into a full-scale war, Corrie Belle Hollister finds herself thrust into the political arena.

Her reputation as California’s Woman Reporter and her vain attempts to help Colonel John Fremont in the presidential election of 1856 have brought her to the attention of the leaders of California’s new Republican Party. And the handsome young political aide, Cal Burton, helps to convince Corrie that Lincoln, and even the nation itself, depend upon the influence she can wield through her speaking and writing.

Mounting conflict within the Hollister clan and in the nation at large bring Corrie to the realization that the decisions she makes could change her life forever.


Into the Long Dark Night:

The War Between the States has escalated into a full-scale conflict threatening to tear the nation apart. Having been invited by President Lincoln to come to Washington, D.C., to assist in his reelection campaign, Corrie finds herself a long way from home in a most unusual situation–a young woman from the Wild West, with little education and experience, in the seat of power at the nation’s capital.

While writing and reporting from the battlefields, Corrie unwittingly uncovers a plot that could change the country’s course forever, but taking action will put her very life at risk.
