Twilight Moms Books of the Month
Check out what we will be reading for August! We have 2 new books for you:
White Cat tells the story of Cassel Sharpe, a young man who comes from a family of so-called Curse Workers. They work magic with the simple touch of a hand — and that’s why everyone wears gloves, out of fear of being cursed by an unknown Curse Worker. Oh, and Curse Working is illegal — so Cassel’s family are all mobsters. Con men. Of course, Cassel just so happens to be the only non-Worker in his family. But he’s not the “good kid” in a bad family. He also killed his best friend (and childhood crush) Lila three years earlier.
But after waking up on the roof of his school dorm — and not sure how he got there — Cassel begins to suspect something isn’t quite right. And then there’s the mysterious white cat that keeps showing up. Pretty soon, Cassel is convinced that all is not as it seems.
“Sailing aboard her father’s ship is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. But as a lady in 1855 San Francisco, her future is set: marry a man she doesn’t love in order to preseve her social standing. On her last voyage before the wedding, Camille learns the mother she has always believed dead is in fact alive and in Australia. When their Sydney-bound ship goes down in a gale, and her father dies, Camille sets out to find her mother and a map in her possession – a map believed to lead to a stone that once belonged to the legendary civilization of the immortals. The stone can do exactly what Camille wants most: bring someone back from the dead. Unfortunately, her father’s adversary is also on the hunt for the stone, and she must race him to it. The only person Camille can depend on is Oscar – a handsome young sailor and her father’s first mate – who is in love with Camille and whom she is inexplicably drawn to despite his low social standing and her pending wedding vows.
With an Australian card shark acting as their guide, Camille eludes murderous bushrangers, traverses dangerous highlands, evades a curse placed on the stone, and unravels the mystery behind her mother’s disappearance sixteen years earlier. But when another death shakes her conviction to resurrect her father, Camille must choose what – and who – matters most.” [Amazon product description]
