The Promise of Deer Run
America's war for freedom from England has been over for seven years, but the wounds of that conflict still plague the minds and hearts of the residents of Deer Run.


Young American veteran Nathaniel Stearns, suffering from the memories of war that haunt him in the night, has withdrawn to a life of isolation. He still awaits his father who never returned from the war--a mystery that haunts him.


He is brought out of his self-imposed exile by a near-tragedy in the woods that brings him face-to-face with nineteen-year-old Sarah Thomsen, someone he had long admired but he assumed had eyes for another. This chance encounter opens a crack into the door of his heart as mutual affection quickly blooms.


But slander and lies soon mar the budding romance, rendering both Sarah and Nathaniel wounded and untrusting as their faith in both their God and each other is shattered. Set in 1790 and filled with rich detail of the era, this book continues the story of the Thomsen and Lowe families as they struggle to survive in the aftermath of the war that birthed the United States.


The Promise of Deer Run is Book Two in the Deer Run Saga. Book one is entitled, The Road to Deer Run.









What Others Are Saying!





It is an absolute MUST READ! You will pick it up and not want to put it down... The Promise of Deer Run is a historical novel of the highest caliber. The author, Elaine Marie Cooper, has a keen sense of writing to the senses and emotions. I truly felt as though I was living in the plot itself, as a character IN the play, not a reader on the periphery. 

--Lisa Syler,


It's a journey of love and of promise. The story is well written and has a great post-American Revolution feel. It is evident that Elaine Marie Cooper spent many hours researching every detail to get it just right. Her hard work paid off because every scene was very believable in the settings. Along with the capturing the era, the characters are well developed and their young and innocence is added in each page.

--Jennee Thompson,


Elaine Marie Cooper certainly has some serious potential to become a strong and wonderful voice in Christian fiction. I loved The Promise of Deer Run so much that I never want to miss another word she writes. This book is heartwarming and endearing with a strong Christian message that I appreciated so much. I appreciated everything about this book. I highly recommend The Promise of Deer Run, but definitely do yourself a favor and read the first book in this series as well.

--C. Kendall, Amazon review
