The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers is a phenomenal novel that I would encourage everybody to give a try. It is a historical fiction set back in the day of slaves in America, and its perspective is something new, raw and thought provoking.
What I disliked:
That I couldn’t put it down and had to drag myself through work the next day. Actually, that’s probably a good thing 😉
What I liked:
This story is through the lens of a frontier woman long ago. Her grit, determination and perseverance while sticking to her beliefs amidst trial and tribulation is astounding. It is written in a way in which it changes a bit – a letter here, a thought there, a journal entry over there. It keeps the mind working, trying to figure out the end before reaching the actual end. Phenomenal.
Where to find it:
I was fortunate enough to have my curiosity sparked at our local used book store, Flyleaf. You can find it on Goodreads Kindle for less than $10, a more than fair price.
