THE LAST HEIRESS by Mary Ellis
Welcome, Mary. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be?
I would have loved to have dinner with Mrs. Billy Graham. What an interesting life of Christian service that woman lived! I would love to ask her how her faith changed and grew over the years, and what her influences had been.
Please tell us a little about your novel, The Last Heiress.
She crossed the sea to save a legacy…finding love wasn’t part of her
The Last Heiress is a stand-alone historical romance, also set during the American Civil War. My heroine, Amanda Dunn is heir to the largest textile mill in Manchester, England. When the blockade of southern ports curtails the supply of cotton, her father sends her to Wilmington to restore trade. Her estranged twin sister, Abigail, eloped at 17 with an American cotton factor, and also lives in Wilmington. When Amanda falls for a local shopkeeper, class distinction, political loyalties, and family obligations guarantee a turbulent romance.
What takeaway value do you want your readers to have?
I would like readers to take away two ideas: First, that there are no easy answers to complex political issues. It wasn’t the case in 1865 and it isn’t the case in 2015. And secondly, I would like them to remember the bonds of family and the ties which bind us together in love are forever.
