Initially set in Ireland and then the American Revolutionary War, “Weavers of the Land” by Judy McCall Chester is a historical romance novel that centers on the power of love and loyalty to one’s newly adopted country.

King George III commissions Robert McCall, a young weaver, to design a royal tablecloth. The cloth incorporates the American eagle, which insults the King, resulting in a beheading order for the weaver. Robert, a stowaway in a potato barrel, along with the king’s daughter Kate, escapes to America. A stalwart patriot serving beside General George Washington, Colonel McCall declares to all that he is helping to weave the threads of a new republic.

“My love of history and exploration of historical sites encouraged me to write,” said Chester. “This book is drawn from elements of my family heritage and represents the first part of a trilogy.”

Experience the romantic journey of Robert and Kate from the land of Ireland to America as the Revolutionary War unfolds.
