Second Royer book to debut

August 28, 2012

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — The second book in the series of historical novels centering on the real-life Royer family, who built an industrial farmstead on the site of the present-day Renfrew Museum and Park, will be released at Renfrew’s Pennsylvania German Festival on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Maxine Beck and Marie Lanser Beck wrote “The Royers of Renfrew — Threads of Change” as the second of three young adult novels set in the early 1800s.

The Becks will be signing books during the festival, as will Ruth Gembe who wrote “Roadside” about Waynesboro history.

The second volume in “The Royers of Renfrew” carries the Royer family saga through the trials and challenges of the War of 1812 where the Pietist German family’s religious beliefs conflict with the clamor for war as the young nation takes on Great Britain.
