Florilla: A Pinelands Romance

"Florilla has something for everyone: romance, adventure, magic, and history. Buchan leads us along an exquisitely described walk through time in the New Jersey Pinelands—a special treat for those who know and love the area and an adventure for those just getting to know it."
—Jane Gorman, author of Scones and Scofflaws: Cape May Cozy Mysteries With a Twist

Florilla cover

Granddaughter of "The Pinelands Witch," daughter of the self-styled Wizard of the Pines, and with powers of her own, eleven-year-old Florilla Munion finds herself abandoned deep in the New Jersey Pinelands. Rescued by the itinerant Dr. Peace, she is taken to Benderville, a model mill town in the heart of the Pines owned by the doctor's old friend, the eccentric, progressive Benjamin Bender. Benjamin Bender takes Florilla in, and she becomes his pupil when he discovers her talent for his beloved Latin and Greek.

But Benderville is only the beginning of Florilla's journey.

Nearly 30 Republican-controlled state legislatures have passed or are considering bills outlawing it. But what exactly is CRT? How did it get to the forefront of political discussions? And what are the best information sources on it for librarians to recommend?

When will this activity get back to normal?). While interesting, these questions don't acknowledge that libraries are incredibly diverse in terms of culture, size, type, goals, and locations."
