Red Sky Over America
Ladies of Oberlin Book 1
by Tamera Lynn Kraft
In 1857, America, the daughter of a slave owner, is an abolitionist and a student at Oberlin College, a school known for its radical ideas. America goes home to Kentucky during school break to confront her father about freeing his slaves.
America’s classmate, William, goes to Kentucky to preach abolition to churches that condone slavery. America and William find themselves in the center of the approaching storm sweeping the nation and may not make it home to Ohio or live through the struggle.
Red Sky Over America tackles the most turbulent time in history with thorough research and fascinating characters. Tamera Lynn Kraft has woven a tale about the evils of slavery that should never be forgotten. — Mary Ellis, author of The Quaker and the Rebel, The Lady and the Officer, and The Last Heiress.

Some of you may have heard my publisher, Desert Breeze Press, is closing its doors at the end of June. I wanted to write a short note to let you know what that means.
First of all, Desert Breeze has been great to me. They are handling this closing in the an ethical way. I want to thank the managing editors, Gail and Jennifer. They are a class act. I also want to thank the editors and cover artist who worked there. Everyone worked to make my novels the best they can be. Sometimes these things just happen in the changing publishing world.
What it means for my books is that all of them but A Christmas Promise will be discontinued on all online sites by the end of June. I don’t know the exact date. If you planned to order a book, please do so now. It also means the next novel in the Oberlin Series will not release in November through Desert Breeze. If you want to leave reviews, continue to do so. Those reviews will carry over when the books are rereleased through another publisher.
This is not the end though. Another publisher is picking up my past books and publishing the next two Oberlin Series books. I don’t know the timing or details yet, but I will let you know when as soon as I know.
Thanks for all you support. This news would be devastating if I didn’t have loyal fans like you and if I didn’t know God has this all in His hands.
