S Thomas Bailey in his series of books, “The Gauntlet Runner,” provides a window into an often overlooked part of the bigger conflict known as the French and Indian War in North America, the battles waged by the settlers living along the frontiers of the English colonies against the French and their native allies. Readers will be riveted by the enduring struggles of the main characters, Jacob and Maggie, as they endure separation from each other and their family, and their efforts to reunite as the war rages around them.
“Those who enjoy serious yet entertaining historical fiction with epic conflicts that reflect the times would do well to read this…”
“S. Thomas Bailey masterfully weaves the history of this era…”
“The characters marched off the pages and into my heart…”
“This was the way of life on the early eastern frontier and Mr. Bailey has made it all come to life.”
