We here at The Paperback Princesses often receive emails from Indie authors requesting reviews and are blessed with free book copies. Often we are unable to get to so many titles before our mass market published books take over our TBR shelves. That doesn't mean there aren't plenty of great reads though! We want to give back to those Indie authors and are declaring EVERY SECOND SUNDAY our SHOUT OUT TO INDIES MEME. For those of fellow bloggers, please feel free to add our meme to your regular schedule. We only ask that you quote and link back to us as a courtesy. For all of you Indie authors, we invite you to contact us at the contact link to your top left. We will select 1 - 3 titles (each time we post) that sound interesting. Lastly, for you readers, this is a bit of a test so please do comment and let us know what you think. We will also be offering up giveaway copies whenever we can! So without further ado, here is this week's pick -

In a village near the Welsh marshes in 1820s England, outward appearances and behavior are important. Mary Burnley refuses to conform.
A young woman, widowed and shunned by her village.
A clergyman, new to his parish and congregation.
An unknown, unforgivable past.
St. Edmund Wood, a refuge.
In Regency England, Mary Burnley returns to her home after eighteen months of marriage; she is scorned and shunned by the village, and her mother. When Mary meets the Rev. Mr. Nathaniel Godwin, the new curate for the village church, life becomes a little less bleak. It is in the mysterious and beautiful St. Edmund Wood where a dark, unknown past is revealed, and it is in St. Edmund Wood where her new-found happiness will either be made, or broken.
This is a short story, only about 112 pages, but I'm looking forward to trying it. Have any of you read it yet?
