The Spruce Gum Box by Elizabeth Egerton Wilder is now available as an ebook. To celebrate its introduction, the publisher is offering a 50% discount on downloads through Smashwords.com for the month of September.
A work of historical fiction set in 1820’s northern Maine, The Spruce Gum Box portrays a family forged by adversity, and a community united by dreams. Addie loved to run along the river’s edge so the wind could blow through her long hair, released from the strict bun her father demanded. When Jed returned from the lumber harvest in the spring, she would fly into his arms, releasing her pent-up passion from its winter prison. Little did they know their forbidden love would set in motion a series of events that would forever change their lives and make Jed a fugitive. With a bounty on his head and his infant son hidden beneath his coat, Jed turned to the only man he felt he could trust—the leader of a nearby Micmac Native American settlement. The unlikely partnership that ensued defied all odds, overcoming bigotry and betrayal to stake a claim on the primitive New England landscape. As the strife escalated between Great Britain and the United States over the border of Maine and the rights to its lucrative lumber industry, determination to survive and create a life for his young son drove Jed into uncharted territory and perilous adventure.
The debut novel by Elizabeth Egerton Wilder, The Spruce Gum Box was formally launched earlier this summer on the author’s 72cnd birthday, and is available in print through booksellers and online retailers.
