She won the 2012 ACFW Genesis contest for her Civil War historical romance, releasing this summer under a new title The Abolitionist’s Daughter.

My Review: 

The Abolitionist's Daughter is a wonderful new release by Kathleen L Maher. The author's talent definitely shines through in this book. The historical details are well written and vivid. Any reader will be transported back into time to the Civil War. It has some scenes in the are I live in - which I found intriguing and thought she captured the time the way I imagined perfectly.
I highly recommend The Abolitionist's Daughter for readers who enjoy clean historical fiction. I give it five plus stars.
