MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

"Olivia, Mourning, Book 1 of the 'Olivia' series, is historical fiction at its best ...

(It) is about the changing complexities of human relationships and politics as much as it is about one determined young girl's desire to make her own place in the world, outside of boundaries and conventions. It's also a story of trauma and how even the closest-held relationships and secrets change. 

Expect no easy conclusions to Book 1: it's all about transition points and leaves the door open for further journeys with Olivia. Readers interested in historical fiction with a healthy dose of romance will find Olivia, Mourning a compelling, gripping saga that deliciously wraps what could be predictable elements in a cloak of many choices. It's all about options and consequences - and is a heartfelt story especially recommended for readers who enjoy headstrong protagonists tasked with making their own way in the world."
-- D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, MBR

About the Author

Yael Politis grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, not far from Olivia's farm and boarding house.  She based many of the details in her books (including how Mourning got his name) on letters and journals passed down through her family, over seven generations of lives lived in the American Midwest. She received a great deal of insight from her sister Martha, who lived in a modern log home, hunted her own land, and was as independent and stubborn as Olivia.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Politis moved to Israel,where before retirement she worked as an agricultural laborer, secretary, librarian,Administrative Systems Analyst, Hebrew-English translator, editor,English teacher, technical writer, and proposal writer.
