New Book Release from Fireship Press - "Finding Paradise"

To what lengths must they go in order to discover a paradise of their own?

Tucson, AZ, September 17, 2020 --( Ellen Schmidt finds herself out of step with the world around her. Considered a spinster in her community, her closest friends are the slaves that her family owns. After her father arranges her marriage, she must face a cruel set of circumstances and the beginning of the Civil War, setting her on a path that seems to be out of her control. Strong and independent, Ellen continues in her own unique way to forge a future that can include a paradise of her own.

“Finding Paradise was a beautiful story of fierce loyalty and love during one of the hardest times in American history. I’ve found myself missing the characters that I fell in love with long after I read the last page.” - Kathy Godfredsen, The Rock Valley Bee

“A compelling novel of the Civil War era, the author has created strong characters who stand up to unexpected challenges, families torn apart, and forbidden love. Finding Paradise will appeal to readers of both romance and American history.” - Flora Beach Burlingame, author of Charcoal and Chalk: John Ogilvie and the Beginnings of Black Education in Texas
