Welcome Emily-Jane!

I’m very pleased today to be sharing about a new book being released, Queen Mary’s Daughter. I became acquainted with Emily-Jane Hills Orford’s writing when her essay about mothers was included in our anthology, In Celebration of Mothers. I’ve followed her since and am excited to see her historical fiction making its debut this week.

Here’s an excerpt from Queen Mary’s Daughter. Hop on over to Amazon and check it out.

Excerpt #3:

A silence ensued and then the voice Mary Elizabeth had heard only hours before. “I hope you will spare me and make it quick.”

A swoosh.

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum…” The voice was halted mid-prayer with a noticeable snap.

“No!” Mary Elizabeth shrieked.

“Princess.” Jamie reached across to where Mary Elizabeth sat on her horse, stunned. He gave her a gentle shake.

“She is gone.” She startled out of her thoughts. “I heard her last prayers. She begged her executioner to make it quick.” Tears cascaded down her cheeks unchecked.
