The Moral Compass (Shaking the Tree, Book 1) by K.A. Servian
Publication Date: October 17, 2017
Paperback & eBook; 285 Pages
About the AuthorAs a life-long creative, Kathy gained qualifications in fashion design, applied design to fabric and jewellery making and enjoyed a twenty-year-plus career in the fashion and applied arts industries as a pattern maker, designer and owner of her own clothing and jewellery labels. She then discovered a love of teaching and began passing on the skills accumulated over the years—design, pattern-making, sewing, Art Clay Silver, screen-printing and machine embroidery to name a few. Creative writing started as a self-dare to see if she had the chops to write a manuscript. Writing quickly became an obsession and Kathy’s first novel, Peak Hill, which was developed from the original manuscript, was a finalist in the Romance Writers of New Zealand Pacific Hearts Full Manuscript contest in 2016. Kathy now squeezes full-time study for an advanced diploma in creative writing in around working on her novels, knocking out the occasional short story, teaching part-time and being a wife and mother.

The Moral Compass is the first installment from the Shaking the Tree series. I have to admit, I was not sure where the story was going to go at the beginning. It was a little slow the first 50 pages. Then suddenly, I did not want to put it down and I finished it in just a few hours. I can not believe how it ended and I eagerly wait for book two from the series to see what happens next.
I give The Moral Compass 4 1/2 stars.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
