Hey blog reading friends. Today I just wanted to recommend this book/audiobook to you. Why recommend it on a blog about illustration? Well, when I’m painting or drawing I love to turn on a fun audiobook. This book is for younger readers but I really enjoyed it, twice.
A Drowned Maiden’s Hair
By Laura Amy Schilitz
Performed by Alma Ceurvo
An 11 year old orphan Maud Flynn is adopted by three older ladies that insist she be their secret child. Maud can put up just fine being a secret for because she gets own room, and indoor plumbing, and many other luxuries she never had at the Barbary Asylum. Soon she finds out her roll in the house is to help con people out of their money by aiding Hyacinth with phony seances. How long can she fight her conscience to keep her new life?
This book is set in the early 20th century and shows an interesting view of life in that time. It’s a fun story and full of imagination. Once you start it’s hard to turn it off.
