The Extraordinary Days Begin
The first series launched by GMLTJoseph, The Extraordinary Days, begins with No Ordinary Day, a free-download book set in 1991 that describes a devastating flood and fire that drowns half of a fictional town in New York State’s Adirondack mountains. The remaining seven books, each titled after days in the poem beginning “Monday’s Child is fair of face,” first recorded in A. E. Bray’s Traditions of Devonshire in 1838, feature the stories of five kindergarten children (now adult women) who were trapped together in the town’s flooding school and rescued at the last minute. The nightmare bonded them, and three others like them, to each other for life.
Despite its grim beginning, the series is full of humor as well as intrigue, history, and, of course, romance.
