The Blizzard Bride
by Susanne Dietze
December 3, 1887
“Forgive my cryptic invitation to lunch, Miss Bracey, but I dared not go into detail on the chance your post was intercepted.”
Abigail Bracey was not the sort of person whose mail was intercepted.
No one showed the least bit of interest in her monotonous life, but Mr. Welch, the balding gentleman seated across the white-draped table from her, was probably accustomed to others attempting to intercept his correspondence.
I know this is more than one line, but isn’t it fabulous?! In just two sentences we are shown so much about the main character. I love this. Writing like this is why I love Susie Dietze’s novels so much. She is master of saying much in a small number of words. And, I am SOOOOOO excited to read this book. When I learned that Susie was writing a novel for the Daughters of the Mayflower series, I knew I had to get my hands on this book ASAP. Definitely check back soon for my full review.
