My New Hero

sarrandas-legacy-by-celia-h-miles

A few month’s back Appalachian Writer Celia Miles sent me her latest book “Sarranda’s Legacy.” The book was ever bit as good as the fist Sarranda books if not better. I just loved it.

As I was finishing up the book I suddenly thought to myself “I wish I could be like Sarranda, why she’s my new hero.”

When I read an Appalachian book that I know I’m going to keep I mark the pages I know I’ll want to go back and revisit. There was more than a few marked pages in “Sarranda’s Legacy.”

I highly recommend all of Celia’s books. The Sarranda series is especially heart warming, and the mill mysteries are perfect for mystery lovers.

Jump over to her website here. I didn’t see “Sarranda’s Legacy” on the site yet, but Ceilia’s email is front and center so if you’re interested you can contact her about the book.

    I agree that Sarranda is a hero. She represents many women of Appalachia after the Civil War: the strength of character needed to keep a community intact, the creativity (as when she organizes local women to sell their crafts). I especially appreciate her relationship with John, her husband.

    I guess that front cover tells all…with quilts, mountains, fog, a river/creek, baskets, a water wheel, and a log cabin!
