Hannah Linder is such a delightful young lady, and she joins us on the podcast again this week. We had a great time chatting about her new book, Garden of the Midnights. We also talked about how both the book title and the book cover go along with the story, how Regency romance has changed in the past several years, and what historical self-portrait photography is. Patrons get to hear what a banjolele is and why Hannah decided to play it. 

Garden of the Midnights by Hannah Linder

The accidents are not a matter of chance. They are deliberate. As English gentleman William Kensley becomes aware of the danger at Rosenleigh Manor, he pleads for the truth of his past from the only man he can trust—until that man is murdered. 
As the secrets unfold into scandal, William’s world is tipped into destitution, leaving him penniless and alone. His only comfort is in the constant friendship and love of Isabella Gresham. If he does not have their nonsense at the seashore, their laughter, their reckless adventures, has he anything at all?
He should have known that would be ripped from him too. When a hidden foe arises from their acquaintances and imperils Isabella’s life, William may be the only one willing to risk his life to rescue her. But even if he frees Isabella from her captors, will he still have to forsake her heart? 

Some sacrifice everything for love. Others sacrifice love for everything else. In this haunting tale of rigid social prejudices and heart-aching regrets, the greatest decision of their life will be determined in the garden of the midnights.
