Folio Society version of my favorite kid's book. I wore out the copy at my home library. The story of Maria is timeless.
New at DPL. Love Laura Bradford.
This hit all the right notes - except that for me, personally, it was very disturbing. Great characters. I could practically hear the swish of skirts and the clop of hooves on the New York City streets. I just couldn't get past the denouement and reveal of the motives behind the murders. Read with caution.
So, I guess I'd better introduce myself. I'm a librarian and the founder of the Save Our Cozies group over on Facebook. At least some of the authors thought we did good - hence the photo above.
Also, Eva Gates/Vicky Delany writes darn good books. Go pick one up!
I love this series, and IMHO, this is one of the best entries. My goal this spring is to finish the other two. But, you know what they say “So many books, so little time.“ Square that if you're a librarian. Anyway - lots of civil war history and modern plot twists in this one.
