    August 2, 2020 by

    Here’s MY cover for this book…different from the book’s real cover. THIS cover tells you, immediately, the theme and genre of “WENCH…” historical fiction about our pre-Civil War period…a period that history books cover only so far. It takes place, primarily, at an American resort in Ohio…a northern state where our protagonists, who are slaves,… Read more
