Under the Mendips

by Emma Marshall

Life at Fair Acres Manor, an old English homestead nestling under the shelter of the Mendip Hills, is beautifully sketched in the opening chapters. "Joyce," the pretty heroine, just budding into womanhood, her weak and extravagant brother " Melville," just home from Oxford, the little lame boy "Piers," Mrs. Falconer, the English mother, and the dogs "Nip" and "Pip," all unite to form a charming picture of rustice peace and happiness. The aged Hannah More is a conspicuous character in the tale, and the closing scenes are taken from the Bristol riots of the autumn of 1831. A healthy story for young girls, teaching an excellent lesson.

Author of the Day

J.B. Markes
J.B. Markes has had a fascination with fantasy stories ever since his aunt bought him a copy of the Legend of Zelda, an 8-bit RPG game. He now writes in the genre and likes to add unexpected twists and a touch of humor. His latest novel, Necrospect is no exception, featuring a necromancer as the good guy, a world where magic has serious side effects and an interesting murder mystery. As our author of the day, Markes gives us a behind the scenes look at Necrospect, talks about his top-secret skills and reveals what he is working on now.
