  1. 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.com

    Contact me at cieldexter@hotmail.co.uk if you would like me to send you a complimentary copy for your consideration.

    Best wishes,

    Ciel Dexter

  2. 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.

  3. Hi Lauralee

    I can't thank you enough for your lovely review of my debut novel Port of No Return. I loved that you were by gripped by the story and embraced the message of "never giving up". Your comments have meant a lot to me. Your review was also beautifully written. Thank you again.
    Best regards

    The book features a female protagonist and is heavily influenced by the historical research and conjecture of Adrienne Mayor.

    Thanks,

  5. 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

  7. 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.

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki: A Book Review

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post Author: Allison Pataki Genre: Historical Fiction Publisher: Ballantine Release Date: February 15, 2022 Pages: 381 Source: Netgalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis: Mrs. Post, the President and First Lady are here to see you. . . . So begins another average evening for Marjorie Merriweather Post. Presidents have come and gone, but she has hosted them all. Growing up in the modest farmlands of Battle Creek, Michigan, Marjorie was inspired by a few simple rules: always think for yourself, never take success for granted, and work hard—even when deemed American royalty, even while covered in imperial diamonds. Marjorie had an insatiable drive to live and love and to give more than she got. From crawling through Moscow warehouses to rescue the Tsar’s treasures to outrunning the Nazis in London, from serving the homeless of the Great Depression to entertaining Roosevelts, Kennedys, and Hollywood’s biggest stars, Marjorie Merriweath

Interview with Tessa Afshar

     It was my honor to do an interview with Tessa Afshar! Ms. Afshar is one of the top-selling Christian fiction authors in the genre. Her books have won numerous awards in the field and her books show the love she has for the roots of Christianity. I asked Ms. Afshar about her latest work, Daughter of Rome . The novel focuses on Priscilla and Aquila, who had once brought Paul into their home  for 18 months. I appreciate Ms. Afshar taking the time for my interview, and I hope you enjoy looking into the latest work by Tessa Afshar, Daughter of Rome ! What attracted you to the story of Aquila and Priscilla? Although we know little about this extraordinary couple, what we do know is spellbinding: they saved Paul’s life, set up house churches in different cities in the Roman Empire, shared the gospel with many Gentiles, and became influential spiritual leaders through some of the most harrowing years of the church’s history. Their marriage must have been remarkable! Ther
