Author Event: Tracy Lawson - Answering Liberty’s Call: Anna Stone’s Daring Ride to Valley Forge

Join us in welcoming author Tracy Lawson as she discusses her new novel "Answering Liberty's Call".

In January 1778, Anna Stone is a twenty-nine-year-old healer, wife of a rebellious Baptist-preacher-turned-soldier, and mother of three. Her husband, Benjamin, writes from Valley Forge with worrisome tidings. Not content to remain at home in Virginia, Anna packs food and supplies, leaves her children with family, and strikes out alone on horseback for Pennsylvania. In her efforts to render the aid that will hold her family together, Anna is swept into a plot that could spell dire consequences for George Washington, the Continental Army, and the new nation's quest for liberty. Answering Liberty's Call is based on family legend and events in the lives of the author's six times great-grandparents.
