The next book in the story of Efrida and Magnus. A whole new adventure building on the love affair that first began in “Snow Bride”.
Lindsay Townsend has captured the true love that Efrida, an elfin witch and Magnus, a knight touched by the sword in battle, find in a cold winters search for a lost sister in the first book and brings a new depth to the relationship in Book 2.
“A summer Bewitchment” finds the couple into a new adventure to help find stolen young women from an evil man.
In the process Elrida and Magnus discover a deeper love than either had been aware of before this chapter of their life.
Both books are well worth checking out. You will travel back in time to a world of horses as the main source of transportation and nights lit by candles and fire flames. I enjoyed the trip.
I made it from start to 1.75 miles up 116 Feet with a pack that was well over a loaded grocery bag – 3 bottles of water and repair kit. We also had an air quality index over 101 which means high level of pollutions particles making breathing difficult for sensitive groups – those that have lungs that need clean air to function well.
There were over 1,000 riders at the event start coming from several states including a group from New York. I’m thankful for the volunteers helping us stay safe and rooting us on along the route.
All that donate to my site still will have 100% of their donations going to childhood cancer – the funds donated weren’t affected by how many miles I went on the day of the event. In my practices since starting in mid-July I’ve averaged about 20 miles a week at about 3 miles a day building up to 12 Miles the Saturday and Sunday before the event on August 11th. There were just too many factors against me at the event for me to get further but I’m glad I had the opportunity to try and to raise money for a good hospital, Masonic Children’s Hospital where keeping kids healthy and happy is job #1.
Thanks to all that helped me with donations and with a ride back to my car when I couldn’t catch my breath anymore. Take care everyone and feel free to use my website to donate to ending childhood cancer until October, 2018. MelissaBlanchardRide
My thanks to the 15 people who gave $400 to this cause. May we find a way to cure cancer especially for those that are our future – the children.
Mary Balogh’s “A Secret Affair” gets 5 Stars from me.
More than a great romance story between a strong woman and man. This story covered some of the ills of the period and how two caring people were able to make a difference for those unable to improve their lot in life on their own. Anne Flosnik does an excellent job bringing the characters to life with her narration on the audiobook. Well done production. Thank you Hennepin County library for providing the best selection of audio and ebook for any library of similar size.

The first thing that came to mind was my grandchildren. They inspire me to believe that there is good in the world. They inspire me to see the beauty in a butterfly and in scattered rocks on the ground. I can be walking with them on a beach and not see the lovely shell that my grandson finds and hands to me. I cherish the opportunity to see the world through their eyes. I need to believe that we can fix this world. That we can clean up our act as human beings so that our children and grandchildren will have a world worth living in. I know that there is life beyond this life but we have to make the most of this life. We have purpose and we have the ability to create such wonderful things and we can create what we need to keep this world beautiful…
