The Girl Who Was Me Is Gone

Nora, a young Irish heiress and her friend, Anne, lose family and friends through plague and Oliver Cromwell’s cruel invading forces. Escaping with a valuable family document, Nora and Anne leave Ireland amidst a firefight that disfigures an English Captain—a man who swears eternal vengeance! Upon arrival in the American colonies, Nora and Anne experience humanity at its worst. Nora calls upon her inner strength to fight for her virtue and freedom—only to have her efforts turn to ash. The disfigured English Captain is assigned to a post in Jamestown. He begins to stalk Nora with plans for revenge. Billy, who has loved Nora since they were children, arrives in the settlement with a price on his head. He risks all in an attempt to free his friends. By turns heartbreaking, suspenseful, and romantic, The Girl Who Was Me Is Gone, is a stunning story of loss and retribution, of friendship and love, and of white slavery in America’s past.
