We’re delighted to welcome Shadows of the Moss author Kim Poovey for a special Meet the Author event at Main Street Reads!
Kim is a storyteller and author of historical fiction and hauntings. She has traveled the Southeast for more than 20 years performing in period attire on 19th century fashion, mourning practices, and other Victorian era topics. In 2011 she portrayed Mrs. Stanton, wife of Secretary of War Stanton (Kevin Kline), in the Robert Redford film, The Conspirator. Her published works include Truer Words, Through Button Eyes; Memoirs of an Edwardian Teddy Bear (out of print), Dickens’ Mice, The Tails Behind the Tale, The Haunting of Monroe Manse, and Shadows of the Moss. Kim lives in a haunted 1890s Victorian cottage in the SC Lowcountry with her husband, Darryl, and their furry children.
“This captivating saga instantly draws readers into Irish immigrant Maggie McFarland’s quest to find her own self-worth in a new land where men claim others as property. As Maggie’s journey takes her from mid-19th century Ireland to Pennsylvania and south to the Carolina Lowcountry, she learns that her own trials and gifts offer her a unique perspective on the value of freedom and just what constitutes a real family. Thought-provoking and inspiring!” — Susan Diamond Riley, award-winning author of The Sea Island’s Secret and The Sea Turtle’s Curse
The Haunting of Monroe Manse: “Loved this book . It was a page turner that I could not put down. Great character development and descriptions of surroundings. Can’t wait for the next book. I highly recommend purchasing The Haunting of Monroe Manse, was thrilled to be able to download onto my Kindle. 5 stars.” JMC
Truer Words: “I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I knew the characters and how they were feeling. I have found that tree, and go to it often to look out over the water and think. Ms. Poovey takes you back in time to a time of turmoil and great love of family, country, and life.” IB
