I received this book as a Christmas gift from my mother when I was 12 years old. I was excited to read it, though back then I didn’t read often but liked the idea of reading books, haha. I had a nice little collection by the time I graduated high school. I loved the cozy story of these sisters and it takes place in my favorite century—the nineteenth century! Perhaps in a couple years I’ll read it with my daughter. Maybe I’ll take her to the movie first. 🙂 if you swipe you’ll see a view of our Christmas tree this year!

I'm a freelance writer and historical researcher in Detroit. I hold a master’s degree in education from Oakland University with a concentration in English and history. In addition to being the author of the historical fiction novel, Proper Mourning, my fiction and poetry have appeared in Halcyone Magazine, The 3288 Review, The Write Launch, and the Ketchup Press. My nonfiction has been featured in Valley Living Magazine, Michigan Out of Doors Magazine, and Planet Detroit News. I have won awards for my writing through Oakland University, and I'm currently producing and directing a documentary film about economic and social change in one of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods. In my spare time, I whittle, repair broken violins, and I love to fish. I reside somewhere in Michigan with my husband, children, and the fastest dog that ever lived.
