One hundred thirty-nine years ago, Maggie Morton found herself at the opposing end of a campaign to have her humiliated, ostracized and eventually hanged for practicing witchcraft. She was buried in a shallow grave in the back of the local cemetery. Maggie’s lonely spirit walks restless in the cemetery as she continues to search for someone to believe her story and expose the truth behind her death.

Angela Horne is coming back to Ezrah’s Plateau for the first time in over a decade. The town is throwing a weekend long celebration for her great grandfather Caleb, who rid the town of evil back in 1870 and offered it a direction of hope and righteousness. During her stay, she discovers a dust covered diary, over a century old, in the attic of her grandmothers house. As Angela reads, she learns that Maggie was not a witch. She was a scapegoat. Whats worse, someone else knows she has that diary and wants it, and her, put away for good.

About the Author

 photo Ezrahs Plateau Author Jacqueline Mahan_zpsflihcsgb.jpg

Jacqueline Mahan is an artist, born and raised in New York. She produces work in oil, watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil, which are often shown and sold in exhibitions. Her artwork tends toward the beautiful and structured, specializing in portraits and still lifes, some illustrative, some painterly. As a visual arts educator, she served for more than twenty years in Nyack, NY.

Jacqueline is a writer. She grew up with an old cemetery in back of her childhood home, which may explain a few things… she loves old cemeteries! Her stories tend toward darkness and uncertainty in both the supernatural and human conditions. Good creepy stuff to keep readers turning pages and maybe…maybe allows them to see something of themselves in the stories.

Strand of Faith by Rachel Bonner

When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?

A girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love.  But those from whom they expect support are manipulating them both because their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.

After a stormy youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. That is, until he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation.  To follow his heart, he’ll have to face his demons again, outside the security of the monastery. Is it worth the risk?  Can he beat them this time? Or will they finally destroy him?

Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the abbey.  All she wants is to learn how to manage her unusual abilities so that she is not a danger to those around her.  When she comes into contact with Prospero everything threatens to spiral out of her control.  Whether she leaves or whether she stays, how can she possibly avoid destroying – yet again – those she has come to care about?

Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice.  He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war.  Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for.  He knows what he has to do but is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?

Author’s Bio

Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.

Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance.  Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun.  When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club.  Target shooting only, honest.  Nothing to worry about.

She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary.  It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.

My Review
5 stars

Alice wants a dog but her mother refuses saying that between Alice in school and her working all day the poor dog would be locked inside all day. But Alice really wants a dog to help protect her from those that picked on her during school last year. On the way home, Alice and her friend Hannah find a pain spot on the sidewalk that looks just like a dog. Alice gets the idea to take a picture of it and post it online to try to get her friends to like it and convince her parents to let her get a dog.

But when she tries to upload the picture it disappears. When Hannah and her are on their way to the first day of school they find the paint spot has moved to a wall and is now barking and moving. It seems Alice may just have gotten her wish. Splotch does a good job of protecting her but then starts to keep Hannah away from her. Alice is going to have to do something about Splotch.

This is a wonderful story. I felt for Alice but I also understood why her mother didn’t want a dog. Of course high jinks ensue as Splotch goes a little over board when protecting her. I love how Alice had to make a tough decision but make’s the best of it in the end.

If you have kids, especially those that want a pet, I think that they would enjoy this story.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
