Second novel in the 'Williamsburg' series, first published in But the magic was still there — maybe even stronger than ever — because now I understand the nuances of love in ways I did not understand when I was fifteen. I would recommend this book, this series, to anyone of any age. Re-reading Yankee Stranger was for me like seeing an old boyfriend after many years, and realizing I would always be a little bit in love with him.
They showed me that the dreams I was harboring were possible. It was many years before I sold a manuscript, but it was Elswyth Thane and The Williamsburg series that convinced me to try and helped me to persevere. As a writer it is my hope that somehow, I am doing for other girls what Thane did for me, inspiring them to write the stories in their hearts.
