That hidden gem you were promised. Sorry you had to wade through a thousand mediocre books to get to this one, but at least you've finally found it. Good for you for not giving up the search early! So many other readers quit long before now.
Like everyone else on the planet, I'm a self-published writer. My latest project is the fictional biography of four-year-old Dorothy / Dorcas Good, who was traumatized by accusations of witchcraft during the Salem witch trials.
