Okay everyone,

Fasten your seat belt. Here comes my next novel. This one is a historical women’s fiction in the style of Phillipa Gregory – 1st person present. This may or may not appeal to you – let me know what you think about the tense. ALSO – Do you want to read more? Is it confusing? Do you find the main character appealing/fascinating? Does she have voice? Does she sound like a truthful character or is she unreliable, do you think?

Since I have been criticized for depicting Civil War women as too bold, one thing I should mention is that Chapter 1 depicts a real person and a real event covered in the newspapers of the time. Also, she really did have short curly hair even though hardly any other woman of the time did so. You will learn more as you read more chapters.
