“Kelly Braffet is extraordinary . . . Familiar yet entirely unique, THE UNWILLING is the sort of story that seeps under your skin and pulses there, intimate and vibrant and alive. Fantasy at its most sublime.”

The Unwilling

A novel by Kelly Braffet

The Unwilling is the story of Judah, a foundling born with a special gift and raised inside Highfall castle along with Gavin, the son and heir to Lord Elban’s vast empire. Judah and Gavin share an unnatural bond that is both the key to her survival…and possibly her undoing.

As Gavin is groomed for his future role, Judah comes to realize that she has no real position within the kingdom, in fact, no hope at all of ever traveling beyond its castle walls. Elban—a lord as mighty as he is cruel—has his own plans for her, for all of them.

Oh, I am SO not good at those lovely photos people of books they like, but this book by @Jenni_Fagan
is AMAZING and her writing is SUBLIME and basically I will read everything she writes, ever.

A South Dakota ER nurse @JodiDoering says her Covid-19 patients often “don’t want to believe that Covid is real.”

“Their last dying words are, ‘This can’t be happening. It’s not real.’ And when they should be... Facetiming their families, they’re filled with anger and hatred.”

If you haven't read @Jenni_Fagan yet, you absolutely should. I am lucky enough to have a copy of LUCKENBOOTH in my grubby little paws and am going to start it tonight!!
