This week's featured story tugged at the author's imagination for 20 years.  Her character Astra Davies (Astra means star) is bright and witty, charming and unconventional.  Author Brianne Moore explains why she told this story about a young woman finding her way specifically in the 1930's, what her personal connection is to enchanting gardens, and how PBS shows shaped her as a storyteller.  You will hear an excerpt from the audiobook released today narrated skillfully by Shiromi Arserio (her performance as Astra is dazzling!). You can find Brianne's novels and audiobooks on her website.  Thank you to Alcove Press and Dreamscape Media.  If you would like to support the Desideratum Podcast, please take a look how you can help on our Patreon page.  If you enjoy listening, please subscribe and leave an honest review where you listen and on Podchaser.  Brianne Moore's Website  Desideratum Podcast Website Support the Desideratum Podcast by becoming a Patreon  Podchaser - follow rate and review your favorite podcasts --- Support this podcast:
