Locust Hill has been in the Turpin family since 1812 and was occupied by Turpins during the Civil War. Although my stories are purely fictional, they are meant to represent what it might have been like to live in Centreville, or anywhere on the Eastern Shore, during that time in history.
The first book, "On Grounds of Honor," tells the story of the older brother, Jeremiah, who chooses to fight with the Union. The second, "For the Cause of Freedom," will tell Charlie's story, the rebel who crosses the Potomac River to join the Confederacy.
More information coming soon!
