Born on a farm in the North Carolina Piedmont, CATHY GOHLKE was ^third in a family of four children. Cathy's first novel, William Henry is a ^Fine Name, was awarded the 2007 Christy Award for Best Young Adult novel, was ^a finalist for the 2007 Christy Award for Best First Novel, and was awarded second ^place for the American Christian Fiction Writers 2007 Book of the Year Long Historical. ^Her second novel, I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires, was released in September ^2008 and was chosen by Library Journal as one of the best Christian fiction ^books of 2008. Cathy and her husband, Dan, live in Elkton, Maryland and have two ^grown children.

This set includes William Henry is a Fine Name and I ^Have Seen Him in the Watchfires.

In William Henry is a Fine Name, ^they told Robert his best friend wasn't human. Robert's father assisted ^the Underground Railroad. His mother adamantly opposed abolition. His ^best friend was a black boy named William Henry. As a nation neared its boiling ^point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict. The one thing he couldn't ^do was nothing at all. William Henry is a coming-of-age story about ^a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils ^of society, even within the walls of the church. In the safety of an uplifting ^friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day. 

In I Have ^Seen Him in the Watchfires, the bonds linking family and the lines separating ^enemies have become very blurry for 17-year-old Robert. With his father away fighting ^for the Union, Robert must decide to act alone in order to help his ailing mother, ^extricate his injured Confederate Uncle, and bring relief to his cousin, Emily. ^When he unwittingly gets entangled in a Confederate escape plot, Robert must forge ^his anger and shame into a new determination to save his family. And, perhaps, he ^must also realize that the saving might not be entirely up to him. Honor and duty ^to God and country aren't as clear-cut as he hoped them to be.
