The Last Matriarch by Sharman Russell : Review and Giveaway CLOSED!


I have an amazing book to giveaway! It is called The Last Matriarch By Sharman Apt Russell. Sharman was an English Professor I had at Western New Mexico University. I have always been a huge fan of her writings and her books. In this novel she writes about the Clovis people , who were hunters and gatherers and lived in the Southwest more than 11,000 years ago. It is a story told by a woman who was one of the clans elders , who goes into detail about her youth. She talks about her husbands her children and the ways and rituals of the clan. I love the way the book truly does reference the truths about the Clovis people and their ways of life. Sharman is an amazing author and in her way of writing you are not only enjoying an amazing novel but you learn about our ancestors and their way of life.

    The book sounds great! I'm a new follower from Thursdays friend and giveaways and I don't think I have a favorite author. I love Stephen King, Janet Evanovich,Lahaye and Jenkins.Some fav books are Swan Song, The Left behind Series and the Sookie Stackhouse series is always good for a laugh or two.

    I've been loving reading through Deborah Raney's books. A vow to CHerish was fantastic! I'm about halfway through the books she's written, so I hope she's writing fast for her next one 🙂
