Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
You recently read an excerpt from Those Who Believe on my TeaserTuesday. I have uploaded it to Kindle and am just waiting for it to show up on Amazon. You should be able to get it sometime today! Now available for purchase!
Last week I finished The Candle Star (Divided Decade Trilogy Book 1) by Michelle Isenhoff, a young adult novel set around the Underground Railway. It definitely kept my interest! Jumping straight to a teaser:
The man bent in a sweeping bow. “Miss Preston,” he said, smiling openly now, “I’m pleased to meet you. I am your uncle, Isaac Milford.”
She gaped at him. “You can’t be!”
Michelle Isenhoff, The Candle Star
Emily Preston has plans for her life; plans in direct oppostion to her parents’ wishes. After a moment of high spirits – a tantrum her mother called it – she is shipped off to stay with her Uncle Isaac. But his Detroit hotel is nothing like the beautiful plantation she has always known.
In Detroit, Emily meets Malachi, a son of freed slaves who has grand schemes of his own. Their abrasive relationship gradually challenges many of the ideas Emily has grown up believing. But when she stumbles upon two run-aways hidden in her uncle’s barn, Emily must make up her own mind. Should she turn them in to the slave catchers staying in the hotel? Or help Malachi escort them to freedom?
