First in the Muirwood Trilogy. (Book 2, The Blight of Muirwood, and book 3, The Scourge of Muirwood, are free today too!) From Amazon:

"Imagine a world where words are so precious they are only etched in gold, and only the privileged are allowed to learn how to read. Muirwood Abbey is one of the few places where learners are taught to read and engrave, and thirteen year-old Lia wants nothing more than to learn both of these skills—yet she is a wretched, an orphan, and doomed to remain in the Aldermaston’s kitchen, forbidden to read and subject to his authority. Her future is destined for preparing recipes in a privileged household until, unexpectedly, a mysterious knight-maston abandons the wounded squire Colvin at the Aldermaston’s kitchen in the middle of the night. Soon after, Sheriff Almaguer comes hunting for Colvin, and Lia is thrust into the greatest adventure of her life as she and the squire are forced into a partnership that brings her closer to her dream—and Colvin closer to his fear of dying on the battlefield."


  1. Congrats on the new job. I regularly forget the day of the week as well. People in our house have non-traditional jobs and work weekends all the time.

    1. Thank you! :) I'm going from non-traditional (with "weekends" on Tuesday/Wednesday) to traditional, so when the actual weekend was approaching, I was all confused. lol.
