If you are looking for these specific books, you should post this plea in the Book Bazaar  -  a lot more traffic there for "books wanted". Also,  lot of the gals who read HF also read non-Fiction, so you might want to ask for suggestions in the HF forum.  Good luck!! :)

"Proud Destiny".

You can find it on my bookshelf. Very interesting- about the  American  Revolution, from a European view point.  Check "Book Bazaar" and you will see my post,  or just go to my bookshelf.

Rose I just ordered proud destiny from you. I like stories about the Revolutionary War, and this one sounds like a new and different perspective.

I just got a chance to check back at this forum, but I did get your request, and the book was sent out immediately. Nice to see these forums do work! Hope you enjoy it!
