This is a blog on book reviews for books I've read, devotions I've written, interviews on authors, and posts talking about my writing journey from writing stories to getting published (when that happens!). Thanks for being along on my journey.
Legends of Graham Mansion
By: Rose Lee Jude and Mary Lin Brewer
Redemption by Rosa Lee Jude and Mary Lin Brewer is an amazing book! If you like mystery, suspense, with a touch of the unexplained, you will love this book. Grae White, a senior in high school, moves to Virginia with her mom and brother after her father is put in prison for “creative accounting.” They move in with her grandfather in the Graham Mansion. Grae soon meets one of the local ghosts that resides there and that encounter starts her on her journey for discovering the truth. Her grandfather tells her the story of how Joseph Baker, the first white owner of the property, was killed by his two slaves in 1786. At the time, there was a lot of speculation about how he really died. Can Grae solve the mystery 200 years later?
By the time I finished reading Redemption, I had laughed, cried, and cheered for Grae. Pick up this book today to follow Grae on her adventure back to 1786 and find out how Joseph Baker may have really died. How did Grae’s grandmother know what to give her for her 18th birthday, even though she had died the previous year? You won’t want to miss that extraordinary present, nor miss out on the family secrets that have a way of uncontrollably coming to light. Once you finish this book, you will not want to wait to read the next installment in the series; I know I can’t. What an amazing way to tell the story of the Legends of Graham Mansion.
