The Sovereign Series is set in the mythical farming town of Sovereign, Maine (pop. 1,048) noted for goodhearted and lovable characters, who weave in and out of the four books like old friends dropping in for a cup of tea. "Peas, Beans and Corn," the second book in the series, was released to rave reader reviews in June 2013 and the much-anticipated third book, "The Songbird of Sovereign," was published July 19, 2014. The fourth installment, "The Minister's Daughter," will be published Fall 2015, accompanied by The Sovereign Series Cookbook containing recipes for all the traditional Maine dishes featured in the four novels. The series was originally slated to end with four books; however, White Wave Publishing recently announced there will be at least two more novels.
