We start off today with Historical fiction. I was reading somewhere recently that historical is popular these days. Is that true? I guess it is if what I see in the Amazon suggestion strip is any indication. I am surprised, but at the same time I think it’s awesome. Not because I’m a fan, I just think it gives us a different perspective on our life knowing and appreciating what life was like for our ancestors.
There will be a mix today, both Historical and Contemporary. Authors I’ve read before but can’t necessarily remember if I like them.
A Question of Faith Lynn Landes ($1.29)
Abbilene loses her husband and her dreams in the fire that destroys the flour mill. The town is crying out for answers, and the Mayor promises justice. During the reading of her husband’s will, Abbilene’s faith is tested when she discovers the true depths of his betrayal. She will inherit the mill and the money to rebuild as long as she adopts his son, left in an orphanage in San Francisco. The son no one knew existed. How can she love a child her husband fathered with another woman?
Tucker Manning, childhood friend and Sheriff, is ordered by the Mayor to uncover the truth of the explosion that took eight lives. He doesn’t believe the rumors around town about Abbilene and Sterling, her husband’s cousin. Could the woman he grew up with have planned and plotted to get rid of her husband and inherit the mill? The past has shown him that some women aren’t to be trusted, but Abbie is different. Isn’t she?
