The Clever Mill Horse
A young woman’s gift could weave together the fabric of a nation... 1810, upstate New York. 21-year-old Ella Kenyon is happiest gliding through the thick woods around her small frontier town, knife in hand, her sharp eyes tracking game. A gift for engineering is in her blood, but she would gladly trade it for more time in the forest. If only her grandfather's dying wish hadn't trapped her into a fight she never wanted. Six years ago, Ella's grandfather made her vow to finish his life's work: a flax-milling machine that has the potential to rescue her mother, brother, and sister from the brutality of life with her drunkard father. The copious linen it yields could save her struggling town, subjugate the growing grip of southern cotton. Or it could be Ella's downfall. If she's not quick enough, not clever enough to succeed, more than her own life rests in the balance...

TESTIMONIAL EXCERPTS CMH1

 

 

            “Jodi Lew-Smith's The Clever Mill Horse is that rarest of all contemporary novels: an authentically old-fashioned adventure story, in all the best senses.  Full of drama, humor, plot surprises, and, best of all, memorable characters, The Clever Mill Horse had me hooked from page one.”

                    ---Howard Frank Mosher, author of Where the Rivers Flow North

 

 

“In this delightful debut novel set in the early 19th century, a young woman fights to patent her flax-milling machine. . .An assured, cleverly plotted piece of historical fiction with an irrepressible female protagonist.”

                        --Kirkus Reviews
