Meet Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Since childhood I’ve always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. I began writing novels at 21 and have had fourteen (nine romantic horror, one historical romance and two mysteries) previous novels published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books and Eternal Press.

I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-three years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the JB Bri…

Synopsis from Goodreads:Bronwyn is kind and resourceful, a healer ahead of her time who cares for her aging father and two young sisters. She can entrance a man with her sweet voice, the beauty of her face. She’s an impoverished peasant who lives in the dark, suspicious times of fifteenth-century England where such a woman is feared.

Why do I have it? I have enjoyed Kathryn Meyer Griffith's work since I read her book Witches back in high school.

Bronwyn is a lowly peasant girl forced to fend for herself and her sisters when her parents die. She finds work at a tavern as a barmaid and a singer. Her beautiful voice and kind nature soon attracts the attention of the nobility, just as her healing powers attract the gossiping whispers that she is a witch out to snare King Edward IV himself. Now, as England tears itself apart in civil war, Bronwyn finds herself trapped between two men - one intent on possessing her, no matter what the cost, and the other whom she has seen in her dreams.

Why do I have it? I do enjoy true history geared toward children and Shirin Yim Bridges is a new author for me.

Sorghaghtani of Mongolia was married to one of Ghengis Khan's sons and ruled her husband's lands for her sons. She ruled in her own right after her husband's death. This book covers how to pronounce names, what Mongols ate, how they dressed and their lifestyles. I enjoyed this book very much and give it an A+!
