This is the mock-up cover of my next book: Daughter of Texas! There will be some revisions and adjustments, of course – but it will look like this, and be officially released on April 21st, 2011 – San Jacinto Day.

In some ways it is the preface to the Adelsverein Trilogy, and tells the story of Margaret Becker, who appears peripherally in the Trilogy. She was such an interesting and strong-willed character that she demanded a book of her own to tell her own side of the narrative.

From the promotional copy: When she was twelve years old, the witch-woman looked at Margaret Becker’s hands, and foretold her future in Texas; two husbands, a large house, many friends, joy, sorrow and love. The witch woman would not say what she saw for Margaret’s younger brothers, Rudi and Carl – for Texas was a Mexican colony, and before the Becker children were grown, war would come upon them. During her life, she would observe – and participate in great events. She would meet and pass her own judgment on great men and lesser men as well; a friend, hostess … and at the end, a survivor and witness.
