It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (40)
This is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Books I read last week:
Heavenly by Jennifer Laurens
Sun Kissed by Catherine Anderson
The book I’m reading now:
Sailing aboard her father’s trade ship is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. But as a girl of society in 1855 San Francisco, her future is set: marry a man she doesn’t love, or condemn herself and her father to poverty.
On her final voyage before the wedding, the stormy arms of the Tasman Sea claim her father, and a terrible family secret is revealed. A secret intertwined with a fabled map, the mother Camille has long believed dead, and an ancient stone that wields a dangerous—and alluring—magic.
The only person Camille can depend on is Oscar, a handsome young sailor whom she is undeniably drawn to. Torn between trusting her instincts and keeping her promises to her father, Camille embarks on a perilous quest into the Australian wilderness to find the enchanted stone. As she and Oscar elude murderous bushrangers and unravel Camille’s father’s lies, they come closer to making the ultimate decision of who—and what—matters most.
Books that spark my interest this week:
Sins of the Heart by Eve Silver
Rapture by Jacquelyn Frank
Knock Out by Catherine Coulter
