Blog Tour: The Rose Legacy

The Rose LegacyAbout the Book: 
Orphaned Anthea Cross-Thornley has been shuttled between family members her whole life. When she receives a letter from a long-lost uncle, she dares to dream that she will finally find a home. Upon her arrival she is shocked to learn that her uncle secretly breeds horses--animals that have been forbidden in their kingdom for centuries. More alarming is Anthea's strange ability to sense the horses' thoughts and feelings, an ancient gift called The Way. Confused and terrified, Anthea is desperate to leave, but when dangers arise that put her family and her kingdom at risk, she has no choice but to embrace The Way and the exciting future adventures it will bring her.

I LOVED this book; a review will be up shortly, but it's not one to miss!

About the Author:
Jessica Day George likes chocolate, knitting, books, travel, movies, dragons, horses, dogs, and her family. These are all things to keep in mind if you ever meet her. For instance, you could bring her chocolate to make the meeting go more smoothly. You could also talk about how adorable her children are, even if you have never seen them. You could discuss dog breeds (she had a Maltese named Pippin, and grew up with a poodle mix and a Brittany Spaniel. Right now she has a Coton de Tulear named Sunny). You could talk about Norway, and how it's the Greatest Place On Earth, and Germany, The Second Greatest Place On Earth. You could ask her about yarn, and indicate a willingness to learn to knit your own socks, if you can't already do so.

Chatting with Jessica Day George:

Did you have a childhood pet that inspired this story?
No, but I wanted a horse so badly as a kid! I had an imaginary horse, instead of an imaginary friend!
I had an imaginary alligator!

 If you had a horse, what would you name him/her?
You have to promise not to laugh! I would have a black stallion named . . . Windfleet.
Oh, I like that name!

Did you take riding lessons as a child/adult?
Not formally, but was taught to ride as a kid by my dad and family friends that would let me ride.

Would you rather be a wallflower or the Belle of the ball?
Wallflower, please! We get to eat the refreshments and watch everybody else!

Do you have a favorite horse book?
I had SO MANY! But for right now, let’s say it’s The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater!
