One of the aspects of blogging I enjoy the most is being in at the start of a book’s journey. Today is no exception as HR Mason stays in with me to chat all about her latest book on publication day. Let’s find out more:
Staying in with HR Mason
Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag Heidi and thank you for staying in with me. Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?
I have brought along Daughters of the Sea, my Supernatural Suspense novel. I have chosen it because it is releasing today May 22, 2021, and I am so excited for it to be in the hands of readers.
Happy Daughters of the Sea publication day Heidi. Tell me, what can we expect from an evening in with Daughters of the Sea?
When you pick up a copy of Daughters of the Sea, you’re really embarking upon a journey. The story will take you across the sea, from the old world to the new, and explore the roots of family history and how those who come before us help to forge our paths. With equal parts mystery and suspense, readers will be turning the pages well into the night!
This sounds wonderful. I think we’d all like to be embarking on a journey right now and perhaps Daughters of the Sea can provide some much needed escapism.
What else have you brought along and why have you brought it?
Along with Daughters of the Sea, I have brought a family tree, because so much of the book deals with finding the past and where we come from. I’ve also brought along some herbs and tonics, as the women in the story are gifted in those areas. I’ve brought along an Ansuz Rune symbol, because the book has a Norwegian bent. In Norse mythology the Ansuz Rune is seen as a communication of the divine. I’ve also brought along a very old leather-bound book that may or may not be a svarteboken, or grimoire.
Lastly, I’ve brought along a photo of myself visiting the house that was the inspiration for Everwine Manor.
What an atmospheric image! Those items have just added to the mysterious appeal of Daughters of the Sea Heidi. It sounds fabulous. Thank you so much for staying in with me to chat about the book. Enjoy your publication day.
Daughters of the Sea
Hope for a new life clashes with old secrets when the past and present collide.
A family tree steeped in mystery. A new town filled with old secrets. One woman is determined to uncover the truth about her past, but Everwine Manor won’t easily give up the truth.
Runa Brandon is naïve and uncertain, and she has been taken advantage of more than once. After disentangling herself from an abusive relationship, Runa begins a new life in Departure Cove, Oregon. Her mother, Asta, believes Departure Cove holds too many secrets that are better left buried, including the identity of Runa’s father.
When Runa arrives in Departure Cove, strange things begin to happen. She experiences frightening visions, disturbing dreams, and unexplained physical changes. Then Runa meets Chase Everwine, a wealthy, mysterious man who pursues Runa with a passion that sweeps her off her feet.
Runa falls hard for Chase, in spite of Asta’s warnings that his family cannot be trusted. Secrets and puzzles follow in Chase’s wake, and when Runa sees his family’s estate, Everwine Manor, she feels drawn to it. She doesn’t understand why the house calls to her but is compelled to find out.
What Runa doesn’t know is that she is part of a long line of women who are blessed with inexplicable gifts and drawn to the power of the sea. As Runa uncovers the astounding secrets of her family tree, she also comes to realize there is more to her husband than meets the eye.
