Would you read this novel?

Its 8 o'clock on a Saturday morning. The kids are still asleep, husband is off to work, and the littlest monster in my tummy hasn't started kicking me yet.
I don't have many moments like this where the only sound is of my fingers flying across my keyboard, oh, and the ever vigilant munching of our fat cat Sysco. (Why don't you go catch a mouse or something?)
So I've decided to take this rare opportunity to do a much needed re write on my query letter for my first novel.
The first one was ok. After reading it over and over myself, ive found that it was confusing and hard to pick out the story line. Figures, its hard for me to get the jumbled thoughts in my brain out on paper correctly.
So, i've decided to post it to see if its a little less confusing, and as always, find out if this would be something that the everyday consumer would want to read.
Don't worry about hurting my feelings, I have a hard shell. :)
Thanks for your input!

Query letter for my novel "The legacy of ice and fire"

In a world where women are treated no better than a bartering chip, tabor must choose between marrying a blood thirsty warlord to save the monastery, the only home she's ever known, or run away with a stranger to save herself. This is one of the dilemmas Tabor must face in my novel, The Legacy of ice and fire.
Hours before Tabor is to marry, she finds out the life that she has been living is not the one she was born into. Events are set into motion quickly, leaving Tabor overwhelmed and confused. The man that she considered a father figure convinces her to marry another man, a stranger, and flee the only life she can remember.         
While being pursued through dangerous, unforgiving mountains by her ex fiancé, Tabor comes to find that she is part of a long forgotten race of people who disappeared hundreds of years ago. The only way to save herself and her new husband is to find them, but where does she look?
The road is long and cold, but Tabor has no choice but to press on, even when her feeble new world comes crashing down on her when her new husband betrays her. Can she hold her marriage together long enough to find her true home? Or will she run and hide, only to die alone in the snow at the hands of her ex?

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
