Today I have Angela Archer and her new release “The Woman On The Painted Horse.”
A young woman defying the laws of her country, a young man hungry with
greed and power, a brave soul who falls in love with one he shouldn’t;
all three caught in a country divided by war and a forbidden love torn
apart by blackmail and disparity.
Alexandra Monroe is a slave smuggler, smuggling slaves north where they
can live as free people. Her crime is sedition and her punishment, if
caught, is death. The daughter of one of the wealthiest men in
Montgomery, Alexandra lives a life not by her own accord, but a life she
willingly accepts for her secret quest to save the lives of slaves. Her
ultimate sacrifice is to marry the town’s most eligible bachelor, Thomas
Ludlow—who has deadly secrets of his own.
One afternoon, Alexandra comes face to face with handsome William
Graysden. Although, forbidden for his Creek Indian heritage, he
captivates her. They fascinate one another, and ultimately find in each
other a bond they don’t wish to ignore. After a series of events;
however, William must face the choice to continue the dangerous pursuit
of Alexandra’s affections or forget about her.
Sound like a wonderful story, Angela. I look forward to reading it. Here is a bigger taste of her book.
The mind thinks. It schemes, plots ideas for rebellion, winning a war,
or committing crimes. It organizes, planning for crops, arranging
parties, or entertaining guests. It speculates, questioning the reasons
of why, where, who, what, and how. It comprehends answers, understands
ramifications, and finds solutions. It develops through experience, and
becomes intrigued with finding the answers it seeks—soaking up
information like dry soil soaks up water.
The mind thinks.
But, the heart feels. It feels love, happiness, sadness, and loss. The
heart does not think. It does not question or reason. It senses emotion,
experiences pleasure, suffers pain, and bears heartache. It fights with
the mind in a constant agonizing war endured every day between emotion
and logic, a battle over what lies at one’s own feet, the unknown or the
known, the chance or the risk. The heart dwells only in emotion, an
emotion with unbridled motivation, and it stirs within people a vastness
the mind could never grasp.
My thoughts written on the pages of my journal bordered chaotic, just
mindless rambles regarding the time spent with William and Thomas.
Through the chaos, though, my excitement over whom was obvious. The
heart won. It spilled its wish, its desire.
The heart spoke and the mind was silent.
