May's New Releases!

Coming in just a few weeks is the latest book in Linda Ulleseit's Flying Horse Books trilogy. Who hasn't dreamed of being able to just get away from it all? What a marvelous thing to be able to jump aboard a winged horse and take to the sky! In the remote Welsh mountains, High Meadow is home to a herd of such creatures and their human caretakers. Each year, spectators come to watch the Aerial Games--dances and races held in the air riding on winged horses. In UNDER A WILD AND DARKENING SKY, High Meadow's new baker, William, is enthralled with the whole scene. His children, however, are not.
Seventeen-year-old Ralf knows he must take over his father’s bakery, but is it wrong to want some adventure before he does? New to High Meadow, he is befriended by the beautiful and dangerous Branwen, who has her own goal—to entice Ralf to help her steal a winged horse and return it to Tremeirchson.

Meanwhile, Ralf’s sister, fourteen-year-old Alyna, dives into barn life hoping to find herself. Becoming a groom to a winged foal is a lot of responsibility to the horse, to the barn, and to her father, who idolizes the wrong barn leader. Politics, greed, and revenge swirl around the siblings as they struggle to be true to their family and their future.

Love history but not the boring parts? UNDER THE ALMOND TREES follows three women in one family who are very determined to get what they want. Ellen stood up for herself and married the man of her heart, only to lose him soon after. By the time she's remarried, pregnant with her third child, and widowed, she cares little for what society thinks. She runs her husband's business and sues the county to be allowed to vote. But it's 1862 and women in California can't vote.

Both books, as well as the rest of the Flying Horse series, are available on Amazon as ebooks and paperbacks.
