Dear Lauralee,Love your blog and the idea behind it! Would you be interested in reading and reviewing my novel The Sister And The Daughter. It is a feminist allegory set in Northern Europe at the time of the Black Death. It has been very well-received as you can discover by checking it out on Amazon, Goodreads or my webpage www.cieldexter.comContact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like me to send you a complimentary copy for your consideration.Best wishes,Ciel Dexter
Hello Laura,I like your blog. Not stuffy and it is well written. I am writing a novella on The Gordon Riots and I am always glad to know that no one else, as far as I know, written a fiction work on the same subject.Ms D, Looked up.your site and read the extract. Good but not really a young persons book. And for an historical fiction work, agreeably brief.Do not understand why you are not blogging about the situation in the Ukraine. Any decent, up to date, blog would get plenty of attention and potential readers of other stuff. peter the painter

Your comments have meant a lot to me. Your review was also beautifully written. Thank you again.Best regardsMichelle Saftich

Dear Lauralee, Thank you so much for your kind words about A Lady in the Smoke! I especially loved that you found the book to be about friendship, love, and family secrets. Yes, I find English history fascinating, especially railways and medicine and law because these elements of the 1870s were changing people's lives day-to-day. But you named the themes that I find most compelling--the heartfelt relationships that move us to acts of loyalty, self-sacrifice, painful discovery, and kindness. Thank you so much for reading! Best, Karen Odden
Thanks! I really loved the story!
Please consider reviewing "Away at War: A Civil War Story of the Family Left Behind." It is the story of my g-g-grandmother and her two young daughters (plus infant son) as they struggled to keep the family farm together for the expected return of their husband/father. It is the companion to "My Dear Wife and Children: Civil War Letters from a 2nd Minnesota Volunteer." Details of their lives were gleaned from the letters he wrote home in response to those they had written him.
