Jadette Paige's Inside Reader List
The Child from the Sea by Elizabeth Goudge. When I was child, I would roam the woods around our house and dream of grand adventures. As I grew older, I discover many such adventures within the covers of books. I found one that even after almost forty years, I have never forgotten the story. The Child from the Sea captivated and enthralled me. It made me laugh and in the end made me cry. To me that is a great example of writing and one I will never forget. This book opened a whole new world of princes and war, of love and betrayal, and of life and death.
Elizabeth Goudge told the story in a historical fashion but from Lucy’s character. I could not help but fall in love with Lucy and honestly, I loved Charles. They were two people caught within the choas of their lives. I love happily ever after story but this one was not one because ofit was base on historical facts. Though a fiction work, Ms. Goudge maintained the lore of Lucy and Charles’ relationship. She was a great author and wonderful lady to give us books to be cherished.

Amazon: The Child from the Sea
The Child From The Sea tells the rich, turbulent tale of Lucy Walter, secret wife of Charles II, and mistress-despite-herself to a gallant and reckless Irish nobleman in exile. It is a story filled with the passions and adventure of an age of glory and squalor, nobility and depravity, courage and betrayal. It is a drama that ranges from an isolated castle in Wales, to the pomp and ceremony of London, to the glitter, intrigue and license of Paris. Above all, it is an intensely moving, unforgettable portrayal of a woman as proud as she was beautiful, whose untamed heart was torn between two men and whose lovely body and shining spirit tipped the scales of history.
The Lone Drow by R.A. Salvatore. This book was the first one by R.A. Salvatore I read and I have to say, it was the one that hooked me to his Drizzt series. I bought every book about Drizzt and devoured one. Whereas, Goudge took me down the road to tragic romance, Salvatore took to a magical, fantastical place where elves, drawfs and wizards roams. His books verified that what J.R.R. Tolkien wrote was placed I wanted to travel and spend time with the characters. He gave Drizzt a soul which to me is difficult for an author to accomplish.
Salvatore gave me the need to create my own worlds and I did with several of my books. My current release is a world unto itself. A place where gods walk among men and how this affects their lives.

Alone on the battlefield.
Surrounded by death.
Cornered by enemies.
And ready to die.
Drizzt Do’Urden has become the Hunter, the bane of the orc hordes still ravaging the North. Cut off, alone, convinced that everything he ever valued has been destroyed, all that's left is to kill, and kill, and kill, until there are no enemies left. But there are a lot of enemies, and even the Hunter is just one lone drow.

Take him from Heaven’s Seat. Bring him to me. We will protect his sacred head.
Stryver Zorti’s mission appears simple. Kidnap the Godchild and deliver him to his master. But with the first meeting of the holy man’s azure gaze, desire surges in him to strip bare the God and touch the man within.
Worshiped all his life, the Godchild is shocked by the stranger who dares lay hands on him, even if it is to save him from assassins. With a different name given by his new ally, Blue is freed from the constraints of the holy order for the first time. He revels in the extraordinary experiences opening to him, then in the passion that sparks between him and the hard-edged, oddly gentle Stryver.
But a god does not love, and if discovered, their precarious utopia will shatter, destroying any chance for a future together--that is, if the assassins don’t kill them first.
