Sara and her husband now enjoy a full life with their three beautiful and very active children. Sara enjoys many creative outlets – singing, piano, drawing, drama, and organizing anything. And even though she has enjoyed her career as a Zoo Educator, Sara’s great love of the written word continued to draw her to write.

Audio review/Giveaway: Blackwell's Paradise by V.E. Ulett

“Not for the faint hearted – Captain Blackwell pulls no punches! Prepare for a right roaring romp in the company of two of the most captivating characters in historical fiction.” - Alaric Bond, author of Turn A Blind Eye, and the Fighting Sail Series

Relive the pleasure of falling into the past with the author of Captain Blackwell’s Prize, in Volume II of Blackwell’s Adventures.

The repercussions of a court martial and the ill-will of powerful men at the Admiralty pursue Royal Navy captain James Blackwell into the Pacific, where danger lurks around every coral reef. Even if Captain Blackwell and Mercedes survive the venture into the world of early nineteenth century exploration, can they emerge unchanged with their love intact. The mission to the Great South Sea will test their loyalties and strength, and define the characters of Captain Blackwell and his lady in Blackwell’s Paradise.

 
  • Narrated by: V. E. Ulett
  • Length: 12 hrs and 59 mins 
  • Unabridged Audiobook

  • Release Date:06-30-15
  • Publisher: Eva Ulett
  • audiobook provided as part of tour (via author)
  • ***1/2 

Blackwell's Paradise is the second book in V.E. Ulett's Blackwell's Adventure Series.  Though I haven't read the first, Captain Blackwell's Prize, I had no problems following the storyline here.

Blackwell's Paradise takes place on the high seas in and around Hawaii.  There is a nice balance here between adventure and historical romance, which meshed together nicely.  This is my first time reading V.E. Ulett and I was impressed.  She gave a vivd picture of life not just the sea but the Hawaiian Islands as well.  It wasn't hard to visualize some of the history through the original inhabitants customs and way of life.

The plot was interesting and played out nicely, lots of action with a realistic story.  I like both Mercedes and James and the way they interacted not just with each other but their circumstances.

I listened to the audio version for this one but as I continue on with this series I will opt for the book version.  The pace of the audio was slow and I found myself  upping the speed, otherwise I would have found it annoying - 13 hours for a 300 page book is too long (imho).

Highly recommend this book to those that like historical romance along with lots of action.

 

PRAISE

“This entire trilogy has lots of adventure, lots of romance, and lots of wonderful settings that will thrill any historical fiction reader.” – Meg Wessel, A Bookish Affair


“A real pleasure to read, this book can stand alone, although I recommend reading the previous volumes to see additional development of the main characters.” – Jeff Westerhoff, Historical Novels Review

A long time resident of California, V.E. Ulett is an avid reader as well as writer of historical fiction. Proud to be an Old Salt Press author, V.E. is also a member of the National Books Critics Circle and an active member and reviewer for the Historical Novel Society.

Eighteenth and nineteenth century journals and letters inspired the writing of CAPTAIN BLACKWELL’S PRIZE. The sequels takes Captain Blackwell and Mercedes to the far side of the world, on new personal and cultural adventures. Coming soon from V.E. Ulett, a historical adventure with a fantastic edge.

Waiting on Wednesday: My History: A Memoir of Growing Up by Antonia Fraser

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill  at  Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.   

 

 This week I am waiting for:



Published October 13th 2015 by Nan A. Talese
Hardcover, 320 pages


The acclaimed New York Times bestselling author shares vivid memories of her childhood and recalls the experiences that set her on the path to a writing life.

     Since receiving Our Island Story by H. E. Marshall as a Christmas present in 1936, Antonia Fraser's profound love of history has been a constant in her remarkable life. The book made such an impression that it inspired her to write Mary, Queen of Scots thirty years later.
     Born into British aristocracy, the author's idyllic early childhood was interrupted by a wartime evacuation to North Oxford. The relocation had profound effects on her life, not the least of which was her education at a Catholic convent, and eventual conversion from the Protestant faith to Catholicism. Her memories of holidays spent at Dunsany Castle and Pakenham Hall, a stint as "Miss Tony" selling hats in a London department store, and her early days working in publishing are all told in her singular, irresistible voice.
     My History is truly a remarkable work, a personal and heartfelt memoir that is also a love letter to a British way of life that has all but disappeared. Anglophiles, history lovers, and Downton Abbey fans are sure to be enthralled.

What are you waiting for?

Review/Giveaway: Alchemy's Daughter by Mary A. Osborne

In medieval San Gimignano, Italy, daughters of merchants are expected to marry. But Santina Pietra cares only for Calandrino, a brilliant young scholar who is preoccupied with his ancient alchemical texts.

Soon Santina meets Trotula, the village midwife, who might or might not be a "strega," a witch. Trotula challenges her to forget Calandrino and become the woman she is meant to be. Some say she is a victim of the midwife’s spell, but Santina is determined to follow in Trotula’s footsteps even as calamities strike.

Paperback, 1st, 288 pages
Published May 15th 2015 by Lake Street Press

*****

The HF genre is lacking for YA, which is a shame.  I really wish there were books like Alchemy's Daughter around when I was a teen, maybe if I started sooner my tbr pile wouldn't be so large.

Though labeled YA this book will appeal to adults as well.  Taking place in Italy it's evident the author not only knows her  time period and subject matter but she has a passion for it as well.

Santina is a strong character, I really liked her.  I liked her courage to stand up for what she believed in.  Her love for Calandrino was played out nicely, they got to know each other, we watched the affection develop between them in a genuine manner.  But she was also vulnerable and scared at times not knowing where to turn and who to trust just added the realistic factor to this book.

The plot was interesting and kept my attention throughout.  I always find herbal medicine fascinating, with the poultice and mixing to create healing, especially in this book as the Black Plague played out.

This was a fast paced book that had me caring (and not caring) about characters and their lives.  The ending was perfect and actually left me a little stunned because I didn't see that coming and I love it when an author does that to me.

Highly recommend to lovers of HF regardless of age.

Spotlight: An Immortal Descent by Kari Edgren

As a goddess-born healer, Selah Kilbrid wants nothing to do with the goddess of death and disease, nor any of her human progeny. But when the two people she loves most disappear—her dearest friend Nora Goodwin and her betrothed Lord Henry Fitzalan—Selah has no choice but to leave London in pursuit of Death’s most powerful daughter.

Accompanied by a ragtag group of travelers, Selah follows a treacherous path across the Irish Sea to the long-forgotten prison of a witch who once nearly destroyed Ireland. Selah would face any danger to protect those she loves, but what if it means unleashing a greater evil on the human world? Could she risk the lives of many to save a few, or are some sacrifices too great?

Lost in the Barrens by Farley Mowat

Awasin, a Cree Indian boy, and Jamie, a Canadian orphan living with his uncle, the trapper Angus Macnair, are enchanted by the magic of the great Arctic wastes. They set out on an adventure that proves longer and more dangerous than they could have imagined. Drawing on his knowledge of the ways of the wilderness and the implacable northern elements, Farley Mowat has created a memorable tale of daring and adventure. 


When first published in 1956, Lost in the Barrens won the Governor-General’s Award for Juvenile Literature, the Book-of-the-Year Medal of the Canadian Association of Children’s Librarians and the Boys’ Club of America Junior Book Award.


Hardcover, 244 pages
Published June 1st 1956 by Little Brown and Company (first published 1956) 
Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children Award (1958) 
hardcover - personal library
*****

When I think of great Canadian authors Farley Mowat always comes to mind.  He was well known for his books on Northern Canada and the great outdoors as well as animal stories for kids (though enjoyed by all ages).

I found the HC 1st edition at one of my favorite thrift stores which is apparently the same copy hubby had as a kid.  It is illustrated and added that extra spark to this coming of age story.

I loved this book! and could see myself reading it again and again.  It's a story of the friendship between Awasin (A Cree Indian) and Jamie (former city boy).  What starts out as a two week trip turns into so much more.  Set in the the harsh wilderness of the Artic I had no problem visualizng so much, and could feel the cold bitter winter.

The different backgrounds of these 2 lads and their wisdom (or lack thereof at times) balanced the plot.  A story of friendship not just between Jaime and Awasin but between people and the land.  This is really my first glimpse at the Cree tribe ad I enjoyed learning of their customs, superstitions and way of life. It's about survival when hope is dim and working as a team, having respect for nature and each other.

Though this is an older book, first published in 1956, its an adventure that you don't see much of these days.  I highly recommend Lost in the Barrens not just to MG and up but adults as well.  Farley Mowat has a way with words that I like, he tells it like is in a real and believable manner.   His appreciation for nature is evident in his writing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Farley McGill Mowat was a conservationist and one of Canada's most widely-read authors.

Many of his most popular works have been memoirs of his childhood, his war service, and his work as a naturalist. His works have been translated into 52 languages and he has sold more than 14 million books. 

The Children's Crusade by Ann Packer

From the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of The Dive From Clausen's Pier, a sweeping, masterful new novel that explores the secrets and desires, the remnant wounds and saving graces of one California family, over the course of five decades.

Bill Blair finds the land by accident, three wooded acres in a rustic community south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley. Struck by a vision of the family he has yet to create, Bill buys the property on a whim. In Penny Greenway he finds a suitable wife, a woman whose yearning attitude toward life seems compelling and answerable, and they marry and have four children. Yet Penny is a mercurial housewife, at a time when women chafed at the conventions imposed on them. She finds salvation in art, but the cost is high.

Thirty years later, the three oldest Blair children, adults now and still living near the family home, are disrupted by the return of the youngest, whose sudden presence and all-too-familiar troubles force a reckoning with who they are, separately and together, and set off a struggle over the family's future. One by one, the siblings take turns telling the story--Robert, a doctor like their father; Rebecca, a psychiatrist; Ryan, a schoolteacher; and James, the malcontent, the problem child, the only one who hasn't settled down-their narratives interwoven with portraits of the family at crucial points in their history.

** 1/2  

I finished this book about a week ago and just needed to collect my thoughts on this one.  I didn't check reviews until I finished which has left me somewhat perplexed, wondering what/if I missed something here.

The story was okay but at times I made myself read it.  Intially I figured I'd connect with Penny, mom to 4 kids and has a thing for artsy crafty stuff. (I got 4 kids and like crafts too).  I didn't even get the impression that she even liked her kids, which made it very difficult to feel any empathy for her and the rest of the family.

The book is divided into sections which told the POV from each of the 6 characters here (ma, pa and 4 adult children).  It was more a telling of the story rather than showing which I think is where it fell flat for me.  Lacking in emotion and feeling.

There are some out there that loved this book, but for me it's  2 1/2 stars.

Waiting on Wednesday: The Beast's Garden by Kate Forsyth

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill  at  Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.   

 This week I am waiting for:

Published August 3rd 2015 by Random House Australia

A retelling of The Beauty and The Beast set in Nazi Germany

The Grimm Brothers published a beautiful version of the Beauty & the Beast tale called ‘The Singing, Springing Lark' in 1819. It combines the well-known story of a daughter who marries a beast in order to save her father with another key fairy tale motif, the search for the lost bridegroom. In ‘The Singing, Springing Lark,' the daughter grows to love her beast but unwittingly betrays him and he is turned into a dove. She follows the trail of blood and white feathers he leaves behind him for seven years, and, when she loses the trail, seeks help from the sun, the moon, and the four winds. Eventually she battles an evil enchantress and saves her husband, breaking the enchantment and turning him back into a man.

Kate Forsyth retells this German fairy tale as an historical novel set in Germany during the Nazi regime. A young woman marries a Nazi officer in order to save her father, but hates and fears her new husband. Gradually she comes to realise that he is a good man at heart, and part of an underground resistance movement in Berlin called the Red Orchestra. However, her realisation comes too late. She has unwittingly betrayed him, and must find some way to rescue him and smuggle him out of the country before he is killed.

The Red Orchestra was a real-life organisation in Berlin, made up of artists, writers, diplomats and journalists, who passed on intelligence to the American embassy, distributed leaflets encouraging opposition to Hitler, and helped people in danger from the Nazis to escape the country. They were betrayed in 1942, and many of their number were executed.

The Beast's Garden is a compelling and beautiful love story, filled with drama and intrigue and heartbreak, taking place between 1938 and 1943, in Berlin, Germany.

What are you waiting for?

Maud's Line by Margaret Verble (Guestpost)



I am happy to have Margaret Verble join us today talking about her new book Maud's Line with five fun facts.


1. Viola was based on my mother’s great Aunt Jenny. Because Aunt Jenny lived to be 103 our lifetimes overlapped, and I was around her at least once when she was in her old age. I remember that day well. Aunt Jenny was really old. I was about ten. And not particularly well-behaved. My mother loved her great aunt, so I was sent outside to play. There were no other children to play with, so I played with the gate. It swung back and forth and I swung with it. While writing Maud’s Line I wished Mama had let me stay inside. And I’d wished it that day. It was as hot as blazes out there.

2.      Blue, Maud’s uncle, was based on the personality of my great uncle, Bill Anderson. I adored big Uncle Bill and I think he adored me. He taught me all sorts of things, including how to fish the treacherous Arkansas River, how to identify birds from their particular nests, and how to stand still and not panic when bees are swarming.  

3.      That school on that section line did burn. And the one that replaced it burned. The story about The Canterbury Tales being saved because they were deemed too dirty to read and tucked away in the safe is also a true one. But that didn’t happen in Oklahoma. That happened in Nashville, Tennessee, in the early 1950s, when Hillsboro High School burned to the ground.

4.      Some of the characters in Maud’s Line have unusual names, Mustard, Lovely, Blue and Walkingstick. I feel fairly free to give Indian characters colorful monikers because Cherokees often do have interesting names, and because I had an Indian great aunt who we all called Pig. Aunt Pig, to my knowledge, never objected to her nickname. But just to give her a break, I called her Sarah in the book.

5.      The models for these characters really did know Pretty Boy Floyd. And my grandfather and his running buddy, the principal of the school, once hid Mr. Floyd from the law in the school’s storm cellar. My grandmother cooked for him while he was hiding in there. When school started again, my mother and her brothers had new clothes and shoes to wear.

A debut novel chronicling the life and loves of a headstrong, earthy, and magnetic heroine
Eastern Oklahoma, 1928. Eighteen-year-old Maud Nail lives with her rogue father and sensitive brother on one of the allotments parceled out by the U.S. Government to the Cherokees when their land was confiscated for Oklahoma’s statehood. Maud’s days are filled with hard work and simple pleasures, but often marked by violence and tragedy, a fact that she accepts with determined practicality. Her prospects for a better life are slim, but when a newcomer with good looks and books rides down her section line, she takes notice. Soon she finds herself facing a series of high-stakes decisions that will determine her future and those of her loved ones.
Maud’s Line is accessible, sensuous, and vivid. It will sit on the bookshelf alongside novels by Jim Harrison, Louise Erdrich, Sherman Alexie, and other beloved chroniclers of the American West and its people.

PRAISE FOR MAUD’S LINE

“Maud is refreshingly open and honest about her own sexuality though conscious of her place as a woman in a sexist society, always careful not to insult the intelligence or manhood of her male friends and relations. Verble writes in a simple style that matches the hardscrabble setting and plainspoken characters. Verble, herself a member of the Cherokee Nation, tells a compelling story peopled with flawed yet sympathetic characters, sharing insights into Cherokee society on the parcels of land allotted to them after the Trail of Tears.” —Kirkus

“Writing as though Daniel Woodrell nods over one shoulder and the spirit of Willa Cather over the other, Margaret Verble gives us Maud, a gun-toting, book-loving, dream-chasing young woman whose often agonizing dilemmas can only be countered by sheer strength of heart.” —Malcolm Brooks, author of Painted Horses

“I want to live with Maud in a little farm in a little valley under the shadow of a mountain wall. Maud’s Line is an absolutely wonderful novel and Margaret Verble can drop you from great heights and still easily pick you up. I will read anything she writes, with enthusiasm.” —Jim Harrison, author of Dalva, Legends of the Fall, and The Big Seven

“Margaret Verble gives us a gorgeous window onto the Cherokee world in Oklahoma, 1927. Verble’s voice is utterly authentic, tender and funny, vivid and smart, and she creates a living community – the Nail family, Maud herself, her father, Mustard, and brother, Lovely, and the brothers Blue and Early, the quiet, tender-mouthed mare Leaf, and the big landscape of the bottoms – the land given to the Cherokees after the Trail of Tears. Beyond the allotments, it opens up into the wild, which is more or less what Verble does with this narrative. A wonderful debut novel.” —Roxana Robinson, author of Sparta


 

MARGARET VERBLE, an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, has set her novel on her family’s allotment land. She currently lives in Lexington, Kentucky, and Old Windsor, England.
