I hope everyone’s having a great Thursday! I’m super excited to announce that I’m on the blog tour for Abigayle Claire’s novella, Andora’s Folly! Congratulations to Abigayle on her recent release! 😀
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A Pandora’s Box retelling
Andora is a beautiful young woman with insatiable curiosity. Raised in splendor, she is spoiled by her privileged life. When a love letter is slid under her door, her life takes a drastically unromantic turn. Nothing makes sense—her arranged marriage, the gifts her parents bestow on her wedding day, or her new husband’s temperament.
As Andora begins to unravel the mysteries around her, she ignites a chain of events that have the power to sabotage her entire village forever. Only her new-found wisdom as a desperate peasant’s wife can save her from her folly.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Abigayle has been a writer ever since her mother taught her how to hold a pencil. However, she devoted more time to reading words with her green eyes than writing them with her left hand. Inspired by a crazy dream at the age of seventeen, she set off on a journey to self-publish her first novel, Martin Hospitality. Since then, Abigayle has devoted herself to sharing what she has learned through the mediums of freelance editing, and her blog theleft-handedytpist.blogspot.com … when period drama films are not calling more loudly. None of her successes would be possible without the support of her Savior, large family, and online community.
This was such an intriguing read!
Andora’s Folly is a historical/fantasy retelling of the myth of “Pandora’s Box”. I loved though how the author didn’t retell the myth by just switching out the names and setting, but built an original-feeling story around the idea of “Pandora’s Box”.
My favorite part of this story was the writing–the author’s ability to create atmosphere via word choice was amazing! The writing had a richness to it that I appreciated. I would pick up another story by this author simply because of how impressive the writing is. The characters are all interesting, and the ending held a twist I didn’t see coming. My one complaint is that I think parts felt a little rushed, and honestly, this could have been a full-length novel. But I did thoroughly enjoy it.
Overall, a fascinating story!
