“They say ignorance is bliss. I can vouch for that. My life was humming along just fine until I received that letter. Afterwards, nothing was the same.

One Reader’s Comments
“I’ve been wanting to read a novel by WordPress blogger Anneli Purchase for some time now, and the other day I had a long car trip so I settled into my seat with a copy of Orion’s Gift, Anneli’s 2012 novel.
“Before I knew it we had arrived at our destination, and I didn’t want to put the book down. The story is part romance and part adventure, and I became caught up in the budding love story, as well as the dangerous escapades….” Orion’s Gift/Writer Site
A New Favorite Author
I find it gratifying to discover a new author.
As a history buff, I first read and reviewed Anneli Purchase’s novel Julia’s Violinist about WWII.
Purchase’s novels engage me in the stories, the human conflict and the development of the characters.
Her other novels waiting patiently on my Kindle are The Wind Weeps and The Reckoning Tide.

I found her books on Amazon.
It’s been a long day.
I am ready to sit down with a cup of tea and read another chapter of Orion’s Gift.
I hope you’ll join me!
