Out of the Bower

Please join me in congratulating A.E. Walnofer on the publication of Out of the Bower! I had the pleasure of helping A.E. design the cover. Here's the book description:

London, 1817: Celia Woodlow is trapped in Titania’s Bower, a brothel disguised as a coffee house. She is wretchedly resigned to this fate until high-spirited Honora Goodwin appears. Shared tragedy quickly bonds them in friendship and they determine to flee the Bower together, though they wonder at their survival outside its walls.

Suddenly, Honora vanishes without a word, and Celia is left feeling betrayed and hopeless.

Barclay Durbin, a young street preacher, desires little more than to help London’s destitute masses. After he encounters Honora, injured in her flight from the Bower, he comes to believe she is divinely appointed to become his wife.

Honora knows that encouraging the good-hearted gentleman’s attentions may prove to ensure her future security, but she is intent on liberating Celia. Telling Barclay only parts of her own story, Honora enlists the besotted young man to help her.

When their plan goes awry, Honora realizes that only the truth can deliver them from the emotional and societal maelstrom in which they find themselves. But what will become of Honora and Barclay’s budding attachment? And will Celia ever gain her freedom?

Out of the Bower tells the tale of a forbidden romance, an ardent friendship, and the ever-essential redemption of self.

Out of the Bower is available in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit A.E.'s website for more information on all of her books.
