Subversive: Book One in the Clandestine Magic trilogy

In an America controlled by wizards and 100 years behind on women’s rights, Beatrix Harper counts herself among the resistance—the Women’s League for the Prohibition of Magic.

Then Peter Blackwell, the only wizard her town has ever produced, unexpectedly returns home and presses her into service as his assistant.

Beatrix fears he wants to undermine the League. His real purpose is far more dangerous for them both.

Amazing. This tale brought a great “what if” to life. What if magic was real? How would that change society?

Beatrix is a woman just trying to get by. She works hard in order to put her sister through college and is a high ranking member of the Women’s League for the Prohibition of Magic.

Peter is a wizard. He has arrived in his hometown of Ellicott Mills with a secret that has the power to destroy everything. When he recruits Beatrix as an unwilling assistant, things start to come to a head on both their lives.

This novel was a spectacular story of magic, politics, social classes, and the uncompromising need to do what you think is right.

Peter was well written as a man who is unhappy with his life and the choices he has made up to this point. Beatrix is amazing in her poise and determination for the League to succeed and for her sister to survive the effort.

I greatly enjoyed reading through this novel and I cannot wait to see where the story goes.
