I ran at such speed down the mountainside that I feared my legs were going to give way out from under me. All of my effort, all my attention, concentrated on the rocks that each step dodged. I knew that if I gave up now, he would overtake me that much more quickly. I would not yield. I would not let him win without fighting...Violet Scoefield was born amid a beautiful English landscape in 1780, beautiful, humble, and poor. A childhood familiar with neglect could never prepare Violet for the pleasantness that future love would bring. Uncertain who her father is or what dark past her mother struggles to keep hidden, Violet will consistently choose to rely on faith in the Lord to sustain her through a life wrought with uncertainties. In April Lara's debut novel, you will enter a time of social correctness and convention. Join Violet as she travels down a road where friendship and love await, even in the presence of an unknown malefactor, who stalks young Violet into the very streets of London...
Who is this man who wants to harm Violet? Will she be able to escape his clutches? Find out in April Lara's Violet Scoefield.'Violet Scoefield is a heartwarming story that allows you to visualize the memory of the past. April takes you on a journey of suspense as Violet continues to succeed through life. How touched I was with the love of family and friends. Through the violence, Violet never gave up in herself, nor did she ever lose faith in God. What an amazing and beautiful story.'
