Storm Clouds Rolling In (#1 in the Bregdan Chronicles Historical Fiction Romance Series)

Review: Best Historical Fiction series I have ever read! Keep them coming! ~ Dotti

Review: I expected to like this book. I did not expect to be hooked! This series is, quite simply, the best historical fiction I have ever read. I’m in love with the characters, I can’t sleep because I’m too busy reading, I have learned more than I ever thought possible, and I’ve been inspired to become a better person. My advice to you? READ THEM! ~ Jeri

Storm Clouds Rolling In is the first book in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It’s readers like you who have turned it into a world-wide best-seller. Thank you!


Book Description: Carrie Cromwell comes of age as the dark clouds of the Civil War swallow the country. Born with a fiery spirit and a strong mind, this strong woman finds herself struggling between the common wisdom of the South and the devastating truth she has discovered.

The activities of the Underground Railroad and her close friendships with the Cromwell Plantation slaves create agonizing choices. But when her decisions put her at odds with her heritage, and challenge her dreams, will she be able to give up all that is precious to her? What price will she be willing to pay?


This first book of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You’ll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free & slave, Southern & Northern – and you’ll fall in love with every character. How many books will there be? Ginny has no idea – she intends to write these character’s stories for as long as she can!

Review: I never thought I would find a series to enthrall me like The Bregdan Chronicles has. I was wrong! I am struggling to find appropriate words to describe the awe I am in, and I find myself failing miserably. I absolutely could not put these books down. I would finish one, and immediately hop online to go get the next one….sometimes in the wee hours of the morning, when my tail should have been asleep. The writing style of this author brings you right into the story as if you are a part of it. She has amazing talent to capture the imagination, and bring you right into a virtual reality. I have fallen in love with every one of these characters – especially the strong women! – and have become completely entranced with each life represented.

The historical account of this time period was so right on, so very vivid, you almost feel like you’ve walked right into it. These books became so alive, I actually had dreams at night of battle. (I’m not even kidding.) But it goes further. There were conversations in these books that had me reading over them several times. Life lessons. Sage advice. The kind of wisdom that comes from every day life. Moments that were so profound, they pierced my heart with an accuracy that I can’t even begin to explain. Many times, the lives and hearts of each character were changed and rocked with revelation that came about in a moment, yet, so deeply touching the deepest recesses of the heart, that you can’t go beyond it, without it having changed you as well, as you read it.

Thank you Ginny Dye…not only for an amazing journey….but for those light bulb moments,throughout each book, that reached beyond the pages, and made their home inside the soul. What can I say overall? Well, let me put it like this: these books are like… “Gone with the Wind” meets up with “Eat,Pray,Love”; then whispers some “Secret life of Bees”, forges some “Steel Magnolia’s”, and at times, wraps itself with the “Color Purple.” Sigh. Did I mention how much I loved these books?

Harm’s Way

“I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm’s way.” John Paul Jones, USN.

The year is 1941.

The Japanese have struck a mighty blow against America at Pearl Harbor.

In its aftermath America has begun its struggle with Japan for control of the Pacific Ocean.

Captain Rockwell Torrey, USN, commanding officer of the heavy cruiser Old Swayback, is sent out on a search-and-destroy mission against their foes.

This is no simple mission as Japanese submarines lurk in the murky depths and threaten to destroy Torrey’s task force at every opportunity.

Harm’s Way is a thrilling novel of naval fortitude and survival in the combat for the Pacific Ocean. It culminates in a brilliant sea battle off the coast of the strategic island of Levu-Vana where the fate of the Pacific conflict hangs in the balance.

“In both, smaller and larger, Torrey must battle not only with the Japanese but also with his nominal superior who has political friends. The best part of the book, by far, is the climatic naval battle where the American task force is faced with appalling, and in some instances, suicidal odds. Here the book can be described as truly exciting.” Kirkus Reviews

James Bassett’s novel Harm’s Way was made into a film in 1965 that was produced and directed by Otto Preminger. It starred John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Henry Fonda.

During World War II, James Bassett was a staff officer intimately associated with the late Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey, and handled his press relations from the Guadalcanal campaign to the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay. Although he won the Bronze Star with combat clasp, he is proudest of this inscription on a photograph of the famed “Wild Bull”: “To Jim Bassett, tried wartime comrade, shipmate and friend.” Harm’s Way drew greatly upon his wartime experiences and was published in 1962. Bassett retired October 1977 after serving 43 years on the staffs of the Los Angeles Times and The Mirror. He died in 1978.

France, 1940

The German army has marched into Paris.

But will Kamille be able to trust a former enemy when he has to choose between his feelings and the duty for his country?

Marcel Legrand, a former history student and a deserter, fearing the capture by the Germans has no other choice than ask for the help from the ones he used to fear and avoid – the mysterious communists, who call for an uprising and freeing their country from the Nazi plague.

Soon, the fates of all three siblings will become intertwined in a dangerous knot, all of them, fighting for the same goal: a liberated France.
