I'm in 2022 now! I'll probably play catch up again and hopefully be set by mid-May. I'm a little behind on my letters for the pen pal exchange too. A whole bunch came at one time which is fantastic but I'm really only to do about one a day in return.
January 2021 was a "Books for Elixer" pick, which means it was a fantasy genre pick. Every other month is fantasy, and the rest of the time is romance. I've hit quite a few fantasy posts in a row.
Included is the card that explains why the month's book was picked. Julia picks the fantasy books and I think she does a pretty good job.
Also included was a card featuring Valentine's Day options. I think books are a perfect gift for Valentine's but I'm not a super romantic type of person. Give me books and I'm yours.
Gosh, the cover. I'm swooning. How beautiful.
Deep in the Hungarian woods, the sacred magic of King Solomon lives on in his descendants. Gathering under the midnight stars, they pray, sing and perform small miracles - and none are more gifted than the great Rabbi Isaac and his three daughters. Each one is blessed with a unique talent - whether it be coaxing plants to grow, or predicting the future by reading the path of the stars.
When a fateful decision to help an outsider ends in an accusation of witchcraft, fire blazes through their village. Rabbi Isaac and his family are forced to flee, to abandon their magic and settle into a new way of life. But a dark fog is making its way across Europe and will, in the end, reach even those who thought they could run from it. Each of the sisters will have to make a choice - and change the future of their family forever.
