I am so excited to be narrating this beautiful book. Lisa Shea has done a remarkable job bringing these character's to life.
Part black. Part Irish. Part Lumbee Indian.
Wholly determined to protect her family.
Naomi Jackson made a mistake. Born in the tumultuous years following the American Revolution, she embraced change, excitement, and adventure. So when the Devil Bill Williams swaggered into town, she launched into his arms, determined that her love for him could overcome all obstacles.
Now she has two young children, a life of misery, and a hopeless, desperate desire to escape.
Then David Oxendine arrives for a Christmas visit - and things will never be the same.

Across the River - an 1800s Black / Native American Novella is the first in a series of novellas about Naomi Jackson's heartfelt, challenging life. These stories are based loosely on author Lisa Shea's real-life ancestor, Naomi Jackson, who was born in 1784 in Guilford County, North Carolina. Naomi's father had been taken from Northern Ireland as a child, while her mother was mixed-blood black, Lumbee, and Irish. Each novella has a cliff-hanger ending, much like Naomi's life.
All author's proceeds from the Naomi Jackson series benefits local battered women's shelters.
