Finished In the Last 2 Weeks
What Am I Reading?
“Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be enslaved to his family’s interest or to be committed to a witches’ asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldnâ€™t leave his past behind. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family, but even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veterans’ hospital, Miles canâ€™t hide what he truly is.
When a fatally poisoned patient exposes Milesâ€™ healing gift and his witchmark, he must put his anonymity and freedom at risk to investigate his patientâ€™s murder. To find the truth heâ€™ll need to rely on the family he despises, and on the kindness of the most gorgeous man heâ€™s ever seen.“
What Am I Listening To
“When we think of slavery, most of us think of the American South. We think of chattel slavery, of back-breaking fieldwork, and of cruel and inhumane treatment on plantations. We donâ€™t think of slavery in the North, nor do we think of the grueling labor of urban and domestic/house slaves. Rachel Mayâ€™s remarkable book explores the far reach of slavery, from New England to the Caribbean, the role it played in the growth of mercantile America, and the unbreakable bonds between the agrarian south and the industrial north in the antebellum eraâ€”all through the discovery ofÂ a remarkable quilt.”
