Dearest Mother, Please do NOT be alarmed. As you can see from this address, I am not yet in Wisconsin. I’ve been delayed and will explain everything in another letter.
Falsely accused of theft, Rikke Svendsen is banished from Denmark. Separated from her mother and younger brothers, Rikke boards a ship to travel to America. She plans to join her father and older brothers in Racine, Wisconsin. But she finds more trouble on the ship. A deranged actor blames her for the death of his son. How far will he go to get revenge? Will Rikke ever see her family again?
I recently interviewed the author of this book here on this blog (read the interview here). She offered me a free review copy of Stalked and (of course!) I accepted. My great-great-grandparents came through Ellis Island and I love emigration stories from that time period. Stalked was no exception. The beginning felt a little rushed, but the story soon smoothed out and kept pulling me along. This is a fun historical fiction with a dash of suspense and a pinch of mystery.
