Giveaway closed MERCY ROAD by Ann Howard Creel – Spotlight & Giveaway


One of our favorite writers of historical fiction has just published a new novel. Ann Howard Creel’s new book, MERCY ROAD (LakeUnionPublishing) is inspired by the true story of  the World War I American Women’s Hospital. It’s a story about love, courage and a female ambulance driver who risks everything.

In 1917, after Arlene Favier’s home burns to the ground, taking her father with it, she must find a way to support her mother and younger brother. Job opportunities are scarce, but then a daring possibility arises: the American Women’s Hospital needs ambulance drivers to join a trailblazing, all-female team of doctors and nurses bound for war-torn France.

On the front lines, Arlene and her fellow ambulance drivers work day and night to aid injured soldiers and civilians. In between dangerous ambulance runs, Arlene reunites with a childhood friend, Jimmy Tucker, now a soldier, who opens her heart like no one before. But she has also caught the attention of Felix Brohammer, a charismatic army captain who harbors a dark, treacherous secret.

To expose Brohammer means risking her family’s future and the promise of love. Arlene must make a choice: stay in the safety of silence or take the greatest chance of her life.



Ann Howard Creel writes historical novels about strong female characters facing seemingly impossible obstacles and having to make life-changing decisions.

When asked where she gets her ideas, Ann answers, “From history.” She doesn’t know when the muse will strike, but often while reading about history, she sees an image in her mind.

In the works are new novels about an American horsewoman joining an all-female group of doctors and a tale of an American teacher needing an escape who inherits a Paris nightclub just as Europe is steadily marching toward war.

Besides writing, Ann’s other interests include old houses, new yoga routines, red wine, and all things cat.  For book clubs, Ann will visit you via Skype. Contact her through her website:

I love reading it because it transports me to another time and place where I learn new things, such as what went on during WWII, how people dressed during different eras, the cultures, and sometimes how people survived each and every time I read a new historical fiction novel.

  15. I love historical fiction, especially WWI and WWII topics. Grandfather in WWI; Dad in WWII. My grandfather had a head injury in Aargon Forest in WWI and needed the ambulances who happened to find him after he was left for dead. Transported him to another country and placed a steel plate in his head. He was fine with no lasting effects.

  18. I love imagining living during a time when they didn’t have all the amenities that we have today.


  19. Historical Fiction brings me to a different place and time and teaches me things about the world and people! I’m always in awe when I read stories about history that I did not know about. Thank you for the chance!
