(The first book in the Amherst Island Trilogy series)
A novel by

Glasgow, 1904: Ellen Copley has a heart full of dreams when she leaves the sooty rail yards of Glasgow for a new life in Vermont. Yet within weeks of her arrival her father has abandoned her and Ellen must navigate this strange and hostile world alone, living with relatives who seem to resent her presence and disdain her Scottish brogue.

When her Aunt Rose invites her to stay with her boisterous family on Lake Ontario's Amherst Island, Ellen finally begins to find the love and acceptance she'd long been craving. Soon she is living a fractured existence in both Vermont and Canada, torn between happiness and duty. When a local boy lays claim to her heart, Ellen must decide just where her destiny lies in a changing and increasing turbulent world.

Originally published in hardcover and written by bestselling author Kate Hewitt, Down Jasper Lane is the first book in the Amherst Island trilogy that follows the life and love of Ellen Copley from the rolling fields of Ontario to the bloody battlefields of the First World War and beyond.
