Come on this journey with her as she tries to find her way in this rapidly changing world of war and intrigue which tests her loyalty and love. Can she protect her family while also saving the land and home she loves, or is she destined to lose it all?

“Till I Come Home” is borne out of my extensive work in genealogy and pays homage to our ancestors, especially the ordinary women whose accomplishments were anything but ordinary. Our ancestors live on through stories like these.
