Leya Delray has always loved bringing history to life. With a passion for research and authentic details, she’s spent nearly 20 years as a historical reenactor, portraying eras that span from the 1700’s to the 1940’s.
She gets excited about history wherever she finds it, and loves old house, old books, old typewriters, and old flower gardens. But she is especially fascinated by the lives of hardworking, ordinary people whose stories never made it into the history books.
It is one of those “ordinary” people who inspired her debut book, Where Daffodils Bloom, which was released in 2018 and quickly became an Amazon bestseller.
Based on the true story of a WWII war bride, the book immerses readers in another era, weaving together real characters, exquisite storytelling, and rich historical details into an unforgettable tale of faith, forgiveness, and the kind of love that lasts a lifetime.
