Michelle Muriel’s tremendously impressive debut novel takes place in the Antebellum South and centers on the experiences of four remarkable women: Katherine Winthrop, a sweet-natured woman who comes to find herself the owner of Westland, an Alabama cotton plantation; Delly, her strong-willed house slave and confidant; Evie, Katherine’s daughter, and Essie Mae, a young slave girl who forms a deep and life-changing friendship with young Evie.

Today, Feathered Quill reviewer Charline Ratcliff is talking with Michelle Muriel, author of Essie's Roses
Readers! I’ve been so excited to hear you are enjoying Essie’s Roses. Let your voice be heard and don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc. Thank you for taking time out of your day to tell someone, “Hey, you need to check out this book!” So many wonderful people have told me, not only have they recently purchased and are reading Essie’s Roses, they have told their friends and family Essie’s Roses must be their next read.
It’s finally here! After years of research… Years of stalling… Years of waiting… I’m excited to share this story with you. And honored you would choose it to read.
So many things can happen to a writer when they sit down to write. Staring at a blank page or my bright, white computer screen with the little flashing cursor never intimidates me. Just like playing an over-rehearsed song on the piano, my fingers start to move before I even think. That’s how I like it. That’s when I feel inspired; thrilled maybe this story is one I would like to share.
