We’re thrilled to have one of our titles included in Nancy Pearl’s ‘Summer’s Best Books’ list.
In The Color of Lightning, Paulette Jiles, author of the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestsellers Enemy Women and Stormy Weather delivers an amazing novel about the aftermath of the Civil War.
It is based on the true story of Brit Johnson, a freed black man who travels with his family from Kentucky to settle in Texas at the end of the Civil War. There, his wife and children are captured during an Indian raid, and Brit finds himself embroiled in the battle between the U.S. government and the native Americans whose land, freedom, and culture are threatened.
The New York Times Book Review called it “a gripping, deeply relevant book” and the Washington Post called it “glorious work”
