Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is The Secrets of Emberwild by Stephenia H. McGee


Stephenia H. McGee is easily one of my favorite authors because her deep love of history is easily observed through her writing. I was quickly sucked into this one and the pages essentially turned themselves until the very end. HIGHLY recommend!!

A gifted trainer in a time women are not allowed to race, Nora Fenton prefers horses to men. They're easier to handle, they're more reliable, and they never tell her what to do. After her father's passing, Nora is determined to save her struggling horse farm, starting with entering her prize colt into the harness races at the 1905 Mississippi Fair. If she wins, she may have a chance at independence. But when a stranger arrives and starts asking disconcerting questions, she suspects he may have other motives than unseating her in the training job that is rightfully hers.

Silas Cavallero will do whatever it takes to solve the mystery of his father's death--even if it means training an unwieldy colt for Nora, who wants nothing more than to see him gone. But when mysterious accidents threaten their safety and circumstances shrouded in secrets begin unlocking clues to his past, Silas will have to decide if the truth is worth risking ruining everything for the feisty woman he's come to admire.

    My first line is from the creepy good book by Jaime Jo Wright, The Premonition at Withers Farm:
    August 1910
    When death came to visit, no one ever prepared tea and cookies.
    Happy reading!

  2. I am currently reading Godmersham Park by Gill Hornby. It’s pretty awesome!

    I hope you have a great weekend!
