Catherine Brakefield

Author Catherine Brakefieldabout this book: Swept into Destiny relates the story of Irish immigrant Ben McConnell and his encounter with the spunky Maggie Gatlan. The story opens in 1857 in Tennessee and carries us through the tumultuous years leading up to and through the Civil War.

Catherine keeps us on the edge of our seat as she weaves the history of Irish immigrants, the Civil War, and the Gospel of Christ into an inspirational story of action, suspense, and romance. As you turn the pages, you'll experience renewed faith and encouragement in your own walk with Christ.

"Historically accurate, the action kept me turning pages from the onset and I loved the depth of emotion she has woven into each character," says Marcia (Mitchell) Lee, author of Surviving the Prodigal Years.

Swept into Destiny is a wonderful historical romance that gives the reader a glimpse into the Irish immigrants in the Civil War... Cindy Ervin Huff, award-winning author of Secrets and Charades.

Catherine Brakefield's Swept into Destiny breathes new life into the years before and during the Civil War, a time when unstoppable forces clashed and changed the United States forever. Rick Barry, author of The Methuselah Project
