About the Book
Title: No Small Storm
Author: Anne Matteer
Genre: Historical/Historical Romance
Release Date: August, 2017
September 1815, Providence, Rhode Island
Thirty-year-old Remembrance “Mem” Wilkins loves her solitary life running the farm and orchard she inherited from her father and has no plans to give up her independence. Especially not for the likes of Mr. Graham Lott. But when Mem is unable to harvest the apples on her own, she accepts the help of the man she despises.
Fresh off a boat from Ireland with his four-year-old son in tow, Simon Brennan secures a building in which to ply his trade as a cobbler. Still healing from the grief of his wife’s death a year earlier, he determines to focus only on providing a good life for his son. But when he intervenes in an argument on behalf of the intriguing Miss Wilkins, sister-in-law of the tavern owner who befriends him, he suddenly finds himself crossways with his landlord, Mr. Lott, and relieved of his lease and most of his money.
With no means of support, Simon takes a job helping Mem with her harvest, relieving her of the need of Lott’s help. But their growing attraction to each other makes them both uneasy. Mem gladly escapes to town when her sister begins labor, and Simon, believing it best to distance himself from Mem, takes his son and leaves.
But neither anticipates the worst gale New England has ever seen—or that the storm will threaten all they hold dear.

About the Author
Anne Mateer has loved reading and writing stories since childhood. She is the author of 4 historical novels, 1 historical novella, and a few contemporary short stories. Anne and her husband of 30 years, Jeff, love to visit their grown children and tour historical sites. They are currently living an empty nest adventure in Austin, TX.
No Small Storm is the 1st book in a new series titled Coast to Coast Brides. It is a fictional story that is based on a real life historical event that did take place. I really really enjoyed this story . Once the story gets going in this one you will not want to lay it down . Mem is 30 yrs old and inherited a farm . She is enjoying her life of solitaire. Mr. Lott does not want to accept her answer of no for help . His offer of help is not out of love either . Then there is Simon and little Timothy . Simon doesn't feel like he is enough and he wants to provide the best that he can for his son. This story revolves around surviving the storms in life that appear in different ways - an actual storm and even just circumstances that shake us. Very enjoyable read. Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book but all thoughts and opinions are my own .
