Product description

Product Description

Dumped at the altar and left without a home, Rosie Xalbadora takes a job as a governess at the edge of the Australian outback. There she meets Pippa Bristow, a sensitive child who copes with her parent's bitter divorce by escaping into a magical world of fairy queens and unicorns. Pippa's enigmatic father, Adam Bristow, will do what it takes to keep his daughter safe from his manipulative oil heiress ex-wife.

Struggling to shield Pippa from her mother's games, Rosie must face the ghosts of her own painful past while fighting a growing attraction to her handsome, emotionally unavailable employer. But help comes in the form of a quirky, elderly neighbor, a welcoming Outback town, and two ghostly horsemen who visit Rosie each night in her dreams. When Rosie and Pippa act impulsively to save a small, white pony from slaughter, their ill-timed compassion puts Adam's custody dispute, Pippa's fantasies, and Rosie's worst fears all up for bid in an epic showdown.

The Auction is a blend of literary fiction, classic western, and sweet contemporary romance, all styled with the heart-wrenching, Gothic undertones of Jane Eyre and just a hint of the supernatural. It weaves social issues surrounding the fate of horses into Aboriginal Australian mythology, Gitano gypsy myth, child custody and environmental degradation. Think Jane Eyre meets The Horse Whisperer meets Kramer vs. Kramer.

“A mystical, magical landscape, and old legends take on a new life…” —Romancing History Blog

"It's like Jane Eyre meets The Horse Whisperer..." —Reader review

-Well of Dreams
-Behold! A Pale Horse

About the Author

Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.' Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge. At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.
