Growing up on an 18th century North Carolina plantation, the daughter of a British Army officer and Indian fighter, Miriam Foxwell’s life was well-ordered, she knew what was expected of her, and what she could expect – until one day when her elder sister Kate told her that their crazy old grandfather had an animal locked in his studio…an animal that walked on two legs, with rich copper skin and deep brown eyes the color of the silt in her garden; an animal that was wounded and dangerous and wore beads and feathers in his long shining hair… An animal named COPPERHEAD. From the moment she met him, nothing would ever be the same….

Professional Reviews

Amazon Breakthrough Novelist
"Copperhead" is a very well written historical novel set in the era just prior to the Revolutionary War. The location is North Carolina on a plantation and the main characters are a retired British general and his family and a young injured Indian boy. The plot centers around the attempts of the retired soldier to heal and save the life of the Indian despite the wishes of his son and his family, who want to kill the savage. A granddaughter falls in love with the Indian, causing his banishment to England. The writing gives the feel of the period without being over done and offers enough period language to make the story feel authentic, yet leaves enough in common English to allow the story to move quickly and flow easily. One of the best stories I have read while reviewing, despite the fact that I rarely, if ever, read historical fiction. Frederick S. Goethel "wildcatcreekbooks (Central Valley, CA

Publisher's Weekly
Set in rural North Carolina just before the American Revolution, this romance recounts the love between a Cherokee and a disobedient woman. Walking in the woods near his son's plantation, General George Foxwell, a hero of the French and Indian War, comes across the body of a grievously wounded young Cherokee, whom he nurses back to health. Wudigeas (a.k.a. Copperhead) is the sole survivor of a British massacre and he's educated by George and his granddaughter Miriam, who rebels against the social expectations of her parents. Many years and tribulations pass before Miriam, in a Romeo and Juliet moment, tells Wudigeas "I love you." The phrase serves as a starting gun for the couple's real hardships. Miriam's father, William, hates Wudigeas and connives to separate him from Miriam. The novel's portraits of life in both Colonial America and 18th-century England ring true.
