Feather for Hoonah Joe – Alaska Can Be a Very Small Place
Sal Kindle has been sprinkling the pages of the feather series with so much homespun grit, it's hard to imagine that an octogenarian can really develop more facets to her earthy personality. Her husband, Joe Michael, doesn't think so either, which makes life all the more interesting when the two of them not only take on a new business venture, but also discover there's more to Sal than anyone dared imagine.
Within the scenarios of Hoonah, Alaska, Rhinebeck, New York, and brief moments in Sitka, Alaska, and New York City, new adventures for Mara, Doug, Joe, and Sal lead to even more new adventures, right up to the cliffhanger of an ending that will leave you either grabbing the arms of your chair, or frantically checking the battery level of your e-reader to make sure you can make it to the end of the story in time to find out what really happens.
"Feather for Hoonah Joe" is the fourth in the Feather series of mystery novels and some say it is one of the best in the series.
About Marianne Schlegelmilch (Anchorage, Alaska Author)
As I breathe, I write and I have written my entire life, even down to publishing my own neighborhood newspaper at the young age of ten.
I am the author of twelve published books, each of them Alaska-themed fiction. Among them are the "Feather Series" of five adventure/mystery novels, three children's books, and two modern Alaska Tales.
My books feature strong alliances with nature and a large focus on maintaining interesting and realistic characters. Many of the characters and scenes in my books are drawn from real life experiences and I have sometimes used my own photos as part of cover designs or within my Modern Alaska Tales and children's books.
I frequently find the influences of a lifelong career as a registered nurse (now retired) and the beauty and intrigue of Alaska's people and natural beauty are what make my books appealing to those who read them.
My sixth novel, a book of historical fiction set in England and pre-territorial Alaska is currently in production as is an audiobook of my first novel, "Feather from a Stranger."
