  • Hot off the Press! Broken Promises

    Broken Promises by Evelyn Chartres

    A young lady and her lord arrive in the New World with the promise of stability and an expanse of land to claim as their own. Surrounded by the beauty of the Appalachians, they count themselves amongst the blessed.

    When capture or surrender means that your life is forfeit, failure is not an option.

    When the colony’s Governor General is recalled to Europe, rumours spread like wildfire that conflict is just over the horizon. The prosperous peace that brought them here is suddenly in danger of collapse. What does this mean for the lady of the house?

    When tensions escalate, she finds herself isolated from all that is familiar. Desperate to survive, alone in the dark, and in a world unspoiled by the greed of men, what can she do?

    Despite insurmountable odds, this young woman must risk traversing unfamiliar and hostile territory to find help. As you read, be sure to consider: When capture or surrender means that your life is forfeit, failure is not an option.

  • Evelyn Reads The Suicides

    Rating: 5 out of 5.

    Mental illness and suicide are sensitive topics in our time. Imagine a story that involves both aspects in the late nineteenth century and think of the challenges these would pose.

    The Suicides by Sara Flower Kjeldsen

    This is where indie author, Sara Flower Kjeldsen, takes us in her book titled The Suicides. She introduces Alfred, who is driven to shine a light upon a community’s suicides. The thing is, his interactions with townsfolk strongly hint that they are not inclined to support his cause.

    This story brings up the stark realities of the day and some which will likely never change. As the story develops, so do the mysteries that bind the characters, bringing them closer together while simultaneously tearing them apart.

    Ultimately, this is a quick and compelling story which may just open your eyes. The last line of the book sums things up perfectly. May I suggest you will need to read the book to find out.
