Baby Come Back

Hooray for the super-helpful fellow from Telstra who replaced our line. When he pulled the cable through the wall, it came out frayed and unconnected. Turns out those cute little possums running around my roof aren't so cute... or possums. But good news - I can blog again!

I've been itchin' to get on and tell you about the book I received in a book blog draw - signed and sent by the author!
The Seeker by Ann H. Gabhart
I felt so special receiving this book in the mail with a lovely inscription inside!

This novel is a romance set during the unrest in Kentucky during the 1860s and looks at politics, slavery and the Shaker's way of life. The protagonist is a headstrong young woman determined to get her way, despite the infuriating men in her life.

I've never read a novel featuring Shakers before, so I couldn't wait to get into it! I'm finding the history fascinating, but the droplets of lust and passion from the protagonist are also drawing me in. This is such a change from the books I've been reading lately (YA dystopian), that it's quite refreshing.

Ann Gabhart also has a great writer's blog, worth checking out:

I'm also watching the follower numbers grow! When I reach 200, I'm planning another book give-away competition. So... watch this space. :-)


  1. Damn those possums! Glad I don't have to deal with any of that anymore. But now it's polution that drives me bonkers. It's the 'P' words!

  2. Glad you can blog again and I hope the lil critters on the roof have found pastures new! It is so lovely getting books through the mail, isn't it? Especially when signed or inscribed by the author. I love getting nice post!

  3. Yay. Welcome back :) Gotta "love" those little furry beasts in the walls ;)

  4. Glad you're back online. Great review. You've peaked my interest in this book so I'm adding it to my growing wish list.

  5. Glad you got The Seeker. I wasn't sure how long it would take to make its way to you. Thanks so much for the kind words about the book and my blog. Hope you enjoy the "rest of the story." And that your "possums" will find something else to chew besides your cable wires. Mason, thanks for adding my book to your book wish list.

  6. Welcome back to the blogosphere. You'll hit 200 before long. Thanks for the review.

  7. Glad you're back to blogging! Sounds like an interesting book :)

  8. Alliterate Allomorph, Yes they are rascalls, unfortunately I suspect they're a more diseases vermin but I like to fool myself into thinking it's possums.

    Jayne, It is lovely to receive things in the mail, and I'd forgotten. A friend has started a blog on handwritten letters, so I might start sending out a few notes in the post again.

    Lynda, hmm, yes, tried the love with the furry cable-chewing beasts, next might be a harsher tactic.

    Mason, thanks, I can't wait to see what books you've been blogging about :-)

    Ann, you're a sweetie. I'm enjoying 'The Seeker' and finding out what romances will unblossom!

    Lou - thanks, I look forward to the 200 marks, I love hosting giveaways!

    L. Diane, yes, yes they are.

    Jemi - glad to be back! Thanks for the welcome
