Jane Nickerson’s second novel, also set in the “Strands” world, is based on the Scottish ‘Ballad of Tam Lin,’ and is set in Mississippi during the Civil War. Violet Dancey, a 17-year-old whose father has left to fight in the Civil War, is forced to confront Thomas, a hurt Union solider near her home. She must decide how to approach the enemy–and how to deal with her growing attraction to him
While this is technically the second book to STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD, it doesn’t have to be read one after the other. THE MIRK AND MIDNIGHT HOUR seems to another retelling set in the same world. I loved STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD, so I’m pretty excited!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
