June 2017 FREE BOOK!

My friend, Sarah Shoemaker, wrote this exquisite book, which is set in England late in the reign of George III (1760-1820). Our June 2017 Free Book edition is a new hardcover.

Author Mary Sharratt praises MR. ROCHESTER: “Prepare to be swept off your feet by Sarah Shoemaker’s stunning MR. ROCHESTER. As one of countless readers who adored Charlotte Bronte’s JANE EYRE, but never quite understood what Jane saw in Mr. Rochester, I was spellbound. Beautifully written, exquisitely crafted, and deeply engaging, MR. ROCHESTER is pure book club gold.”

Edward Rochester, the protagonist of this novel, grew up in a privileged family in England. His world included a variety servants. To have your name included in our Wednesday, June 14 drawing, tell us what job would best fit you in Mr. Rochester’s household: nanny, governess, cook, maid, butler, farrier, music instructor, language instructor, gardener, groundskeeper, or porter?

  3. Permelia Ehle says:

    Because I’ve always felt a strong connection to that time period and that geographical setting, I have often thought in a former life I’d have been a cook or a maid. I love the clothing of that era and the thought of being a part of it is enticing. Thanks for the chance to win this book that looks and sounds wonderful.

  7. I do enjoy books from this time era, always thought I would be better suited to an earlier year. And I would have loved to be a music instructer, but I am good with kids so that would be a good job too !!

  8. I could be chief taster of desserts for the chef.

    Thank you, Dorothy Delatorre. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed my books! Brenda Backus, I love that time era, too, especially in novels. Justine, a really difficult job!! I don’t think I’m that hard of a worker, although I’ve been Uncle Cliff’s maid for many years!! You know what, Nancy, when you mentioned friend it made me think of the position of companion. That was an important one in those days! You are most welcome, Permelia!!

    I would be a gardener. I love plants. Part of my job is tending to plants. I cried when i had to throw away almost 300 plants because they were on sale for too long. They were alive and yet iint the trash they went. I love my garden. I am teaching my children how to grow a variety of plants. Oh..sorry rambled a bit. So back to the question. Gardener.

  11. suehar says:

    That would make me cry, too, Tashauna!! Glad you rambled. I’m sure to slurp that intense love of plants into one character or another somewhere down the line!!

  12. suehar says:

    You are hilarious, Penina. I think I’d want that job, too!!!

  13. Mildred Nelson says:

    I’d probably be the language instructor! I love a good read!
