Local author Katherine Longshore will be at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in Davis, at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, to launch her newest book, “Manor of Secrets.”

The year is 1911. And at The Manor, nothing is as it seems …

Check it out

Who: Katherine Longshore, author of “Manor of Secrets”
When: 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25

Where: The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.

Beautiful, wealthy and sheltered, Lady Charlotte Edmonds feels suffocated by the strictures of upper-crust society. She longs to see the world beyond. Janie Seward is a fiery, hard-working and clever kitchen maid. But she isn’t sure she possesses the courage or the means to break free and follow her passions.

Both Charlotte and Janie are ready for change. As their paths overlap in the gilded hallways and dark corridors of The Manor, rules are broken and secrets are revealed.

Longshore grew up on the coast of Northern California. She earned a bachelor’s degree in cross-cultural studies and communications from Humboldt State University, planning to travel and write. Four years, six continents and countless pairs of shoes later, she went to England for two weeks, stayed five years and discovered history.

She now lives in Woodland with her husband, two children and a sun-worshiping dog. Her previous books include “Gilt” and “Tarnish.”
