If you know much about me, you know that I really love Mary Connealy's books. As of yesterday, I discovered an author that is right on par. Please if you have not already, introduce yourself to Margaret Brownley.
Please see a limited preview and my review of her debut CHF novel A Lady Like Sarah over at my Creative Madness blog.. (She has more than 20 novels to her credit outside of CHF including nonfiction and articles).
