Glimmers of Change is the seventh book in the Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series. As of today, there are 10 books in the series. Make sure you start reading with # 1 – Storm Clouds Rolling In. It's readers like you who have turned the series into a world-wide best-seller. Thank you!

Book Description: The Civil War has ended, but the struggle to rebuild America is just beginning.

Carrie and Janie are living their dream in Philadelphia, but what price will they pay when cholera sweeps through America once again? 

Robert searches for peace on the plantation, but forces are in place that are determined to deny it. Moses and Rose are driven by forces beyond their control to become leaders in the midst of a violent racial revolution. 

Jeremy discovers love, but will the reality of his heritage make it impossible, and will he survive the forces determined to destroy the factory? And will Matthew finally free his heart? 

Volume # 7 of the Bregdan Chronicles continues to sweeping historical saga that now encompasses the first full year of American Reconstruction.

How many books will be in the Bregdan Chronicles?   No one knows yet… Ginny intends to write these character's stories, one year at a time, for as long as she is able to write. She is passionate about bringing history to life through historical fiction. Since she is amazingly healthy, that could be for a very long time! She doesn’t like stories to end any more than you do. This one won't end for a very long time! 

Review:  The word glimmer can be defined as a flicker, a flash, or even a twinkle. I like the glow of a twinkle! At first it was difficult for me to understand what a “glimmer of change” can be? After finishing the book I then understood its more about the “how” changes take place. "Change” can quickly and dynamically alter one’s path in life as events unfold. Being hopeful for a new life—growing stronger and confident—following one’s dreams can all be subtle insights or glimmers we are gifted with as we grow through the struggles or complications or just daily interactions of our lives. Each of the books in this series has inspired me with great joy and wisdom in navigating the events of my life.

The reconstruction years following the Civil War changed how people lived. These years were not even on my radar as far as imagining how events took place following so much loss of life, the rebuilding of the economy, and unfortunately experiencing racism and inequalities. I also was inspired by the shared passion and unity of stakeholders in fighting for equality. What I learned about myself is that I am not passionate enough to support issues existing in my world today! (I saw a glimmer for change).

The ensemble cast of characters demonstrated much growth in this year. Children were born, new love interests were uncovered, and the cruelty of racism and hatred made me almost physically sick. The descriptive artistry of the author’s passages placed me curbside—watching the unnecessary slaughtering of life in Memphis and New Orleans. I fact-checked these events and I am so pleased to report that the author not only captured factual details of these riots but she connected me to that time period as the characters I have grown to love were integrated into these events.

I never imagined reading seven books in so little time. I never expected to receive such joy from reading and yet I am so happy I am learning about this time in history, learning about myself, and being inspired to be more passionate about current issues in my life.
