Growing up as a foster kid, there’s plenty Della Doe doesn’t know — like who her parents were and what her real name is.
On the day she ages out of the system, Della knows her constrained life will be forever changed, but she didn’t know one thin folder would be the catalyst.
Armed with her mother’s name and a tendril of hope, Della travels across country to claim an inheritance far larger than the sound-side home with her name on the deed. As she struggles to adapt to a new life, Della is pulled into an unimaginable world — one on the brink of war — and it will take everything she has not drown in a destiny she didn’t choose.

This is one of those books that I looked on my kindle to see what I had and figured let me jump right into this book. The cover is really pretty! We are introduced to Della who has been…

Starting the Winter's Respite Reading Challenge

It's been a while it feels like since I started a reading challenge minus the one on Goodreads!  Thanks to Michelle from Seasons of Reading of hosting this ever year!  For the whole month of January, it is just a relaxed and fun challenge to help knock those books off your list, which as a book reader you know our list grows almost daily. I feel like I am one of those animals that like shiny things and I have to keep grabbing new shiny things like books. 
Fiction books are on the list to read but you can also do nonfiction as well. If you are kind to join in please do I don't think Michelle will mind.  I don't have a certain title of books I will be reading as I am just finding books on my kindle though I do have some from authors I need to be reading I just haven't gotten to them yet. I think I am going to take a break this year from the requests and just go through my kindle and read what is on there.

Red Lady, Red Lady, show us your face...
