A nice, quiet, slow week around here. One small purchase this week – trying out a Kindle Single!
Intuition by Kathy Leonard Czepiel (purchased from Amazon for Kindle).
This is a Kindle Single – according to Amazon a Kindle Single is “here to offer a vast spectrum of reporting, essays, memoirs, narratives, and short stories presented to educate, entertain, excite, and inform. Our writers take you places you can't get to any other way, on journeys of fact and fiction that share these common threads: they're the highest-quality work we can find, and at a length best suited to the ideas they present”.
Czepiel, author of A Violet Season, is working on her new book and released a new short story – Intuition is 51 pages in length.
“The year is 1889—a boom time for American industry, fortunes and scientific discovery. Yet in New York City, thousands of babies are dying from the simplest of causes: spoiled milk. It’s a tragedy that Hattie Paige cannot abide. An overeducated young woman with a Vassar degree and a position teaching chemistry at an elite school for girls, Hattie determines to solve the “milk problem” herself. But book knowledge alone won’t ensure her success. She will have to enter into a new world far from the sheltered mansions of her youth, where testing her hunches requires risks she has never taken before, and the consequences of being wrong are greater than she can imagine.”
