Cover Reveal – The Land Beneath Us

The Land Beneath Us

Today, on the day before the 75th anniversary of the D-day landings, I’m pleased to reveal the cover for my upcoming D-day novel The Land Beneath Us, Book 3 in the Sunrise at Normandy series, which is scheduled to release on February 4, 2020.

The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and will be available on other sites soon. Pre-orders for the e-book and audiobook will be available at a later date.

Today I’m giving away six books—the winner’s choice of The Land Beneath Us paperback or audiobook (when released in 2020), The Sky Above Us paperback or audiobook, or The Sea Before Us audiobook.

Sunrise at Normandy Series

One fateful night drove three brothers apart.

One fateful day thrusts them together…D-Day.

The Land Beneath Us

(Book 3, coming February 4, 2020)

A dream as dangerous . . .

A love as solid . . .

As the land beneath them.

In 1943, Private Clay Paxton trains hard with the US Army Rangers at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, determined to do his best in the upcoming Allied invasion of France. With his future stolen by his brothers’ betrayal, Clay has only one thing to live for—fulfilling the recurring dream of his death.

Leah Jones works as a librarian at Camp Forrest, longing to rise above her orphanage upbringing and belong to the community, even as she uses her spare time to search for her real family—the baby sisters she was separated from so long ago.

After Clay saves Leah’s life from a brutal attack, he saves her virtue with a marriage of convenience. When he ships out to train in England for D-day, their letters bind them together over the distance—but can a love strong enough to overcome death grow between them before Clay’s recurring dream comes true?

Return to the shores of Normandy, this time on the ground, as the third Paxton brother faces the past—and the most fearsome battle of his life.

Since my Dad was a veteran from WWII, a sailor on the USS Saratoga, I’ve always been interested in history surrounding this era, and forward.

He reached the Ache’ (Ah-CHAY) tribe in 1976, along with help from my Mom, my brother, (who continues the work there with the tribe with his family, and from me (my husband pastors a small rural Baptist church in Deer Lodge, MT).

    What a great cover! You always do a remarkable job of bringing this era to life for me. My Papa served in WWII as a captain in the Air Force. Though he didn’t talk much about his time overseas, he did tell us how they’d make coffee. He said they’d take an empty 55 gallon aviation fluid drum to mix it up. The problem was that they could never quite get all of the residue out of them, so their coffee always had a green tent to it! When he came home, the only coffee he’d drink was instant! 🙂

  123. Sharon

    I love all your books and I cannot wait to read Clay’s story. Beautiful cover!

    I am so excited to read the 3rd book in this series. I have loved your books for years and was inspired to attempt to earn a spot in a summer residency program with the American Air Museum of Britain with the encouragement of my students. I learned all about our fly boys in England and almost saw the air base that my husband’s Grandfather flew out of when he was stationed there. We are excited to celebrate the 75th anniversary of his 3rd combat flight of D-Day tomorrow. After seeing all of these spots you write about I feel like I am right there with them. Thank you for your historical accuracy with your writing. I look forward to reading this next book.

    I love WWII fiction. So much that when we went to Europe in 2017, I made sure a visit to a concentration camp was on our to-do list. Our three girls weren’t too thrilled at first but after we’d toured it, they were glad we made them go.

Both of my grandpas were in WWII, but I never got to hear their stories. One of them died before I was born, and the other didn’t talk about it much. My one grandfather was a navigator in the US Air Force. Your stories help bring what he did to life for me, so thank you! 🙂 You have such a talent for writing! Your storylines and attention to detail make reading your books very enjoyable, and who wouldn’t love your characters? 🙂
