A Recommended Read


I've just come from Australia, danced the night away in a beautiful gown and matching slippers with the most handsome man ever, and sipped champagne for the first time.

No! It's not really my life I'm talking about, it's the wonderful story, Stolen Birthright, written by Margaret Tanner that whisked me away to another time and place.

I've never really traveled "down under" but I feel as though I truly became Georgina, a beautiful young woman raised by her rough and tumble uncle along with his sons. Without a mother to guide her, Georgina dresses like a boy and assumes the name of George... But only until she has a change meeting with Marcus Lindquist, an English gentleman who has gotten himself into sort a pickle and finds himself in search of bride. It's Marcus who gives her a "Cinderella" moment to remember.

I could go on an on about this wonderful story, give away the entire plot with my raves, but I shall restrain myself and say only that you are missing an award-winning read, in my humble opinion, if you pass on Stolen Birthright. Such vivid descriptions, such emotions, such reality. I'm in awe.

I've been Margaret's "virtual" friend for quite a while. Now I've also become a number one fan. Her writing is flawless, and she'll move you into the character's role without a blink of an eye. Do yourself a favor and read this book...then let me know how right you think I am to recommend George's story so strongly. There are some exciting twists and turns you never see coming.

It's available at Whiskey Creek Press
