Burning Girls - Veronica Schanoes
Burning Girls is a novella that's free for the kindle. This story is a twist of history, fiction, and fantasy. This novella is based on one of the worst industrial accidents in US history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. It starts long before the tragedy of 1911 though. The story starts in Bialystok Poland. Deborah and Shayna were young Jewish girls. Deborah was dark and studied to be a witch. Shayna was blonde and studied to be a seamstress. Both girls were bright and promising, but Poland was a place of ignorance and prejudice and pogroms. The story of the two sisters would eventually bring them to America, to New York City. The superstitions of their early lives would follow them though. Escaping evil is never easy. This is a fascinating story. Very highly recommended.
