Mothering on Perilous

by Lucy Furman

The scene, a settlement in Kentucky; the characters, the unformed children of the mountaineers and a young woman, their teacher, who has come to them that she may forget in her work a great sorrow that has entered into her life. How her grief is no only assuaged, but how she finds a new life, rich in possibilities, in the mothering of the homesick lads and in the molding of their careers, is told by Miss Furman with a wealth of feeling. The book is at times as genuinely humorous as it is touching and all through it there is evidenced the hand of one who knows whereof she speaks.

Author of the Day

Madison Kent
Growing up, Madison Kent has always been fascinated by the mere fact that Jack the Ripper, one of the most notorious murders ever known, escaped justice. She would dream of her own alternative version of the facts and decided to write her own story, in which the suspects are totally different people. As our author of the day, Kent chats about this book of hers, Stalking Jack, how much research she did on London and Whitechapel and how her characters were conceived.
