Not From The Stars

Christina Britton Conroy

Filled with the history of the British theatre and allusions to Shakespeare, Not From the Stars is the first in the His Majesty’s Theatre series about the lives of the actors and academics who lived in the repressive days of Edwardian England, but refused to be stifled.

A Sexy Fun Romp Edwardian Time !

Great imaginative writing that kept me enthralled right from the start.

A captivating debut from Sonia Velton

Set in the turbulent late 1700 of London’s East End. Velton’s creative writing centers around the Spitalfields Market.

Two women brought together under charitable circumstances. The story is written under alternating perspective of the two main characters. They are intertwined with each other, within the struggles of the Journeymen weavers and their Masters of that time period.

An exquisitely written, ponderous look into two spirited woman in that time and place in historical England.

Evenly paced and engaging ,this climatic drama you will not want to put down !!

Thanks to Edelweiss for this complimentary copy for an honest review.

Tick Copper

Tick Cooper

John Vance

“I swear by everything I ever owned that my adventure will be the honest truth—even if I had to tell a few lies along the way to get to the meaning of that truth.” So promises Tick Cooper, a twelve year old Ohio boy who’s about to accompany his Uncle Ned down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to New Orleans.

On the edge of the civil war, John Vance’s Novel, Tick Copper is a memorable read . An exquisitely written ponderous look through the eyes of a 12 year olds protagonist.

A look at our morals and the conditions of America’s history during that time period. Great paced coming of age story. A creative journey down the Mississippi River. It features a well developed portrait of the social and political injustice of that crucial time period in our American history. Eloquently written with an even flowed storyline is absolutely magnificent.

A Literary Achievement for John Vance .

Thanks NetGalley for this complimentary copy for an honest review.
