Some of you might remember me enjoying Mim Eichmann’s earlier historical fiction novel, A Sparrow Alone, last April. Well, it’s Pub Week for her sequel: Muskrat Ramble. This continues the story of Hannah.
Here’s the overview:
Seamlessly threaded into the emerging hot jazz music scene that captured the hearts of music lovers in 1913 New Orleans, are the themes of the tightening Jim Crow era, World War I and its aftermath of economic ills, political upheavals and epidemics, and the changes, choices, heartbreaks and ultimate decisions of women of all races … at its heart, however, “Muskrat Ramble” is the saga of a young woman’s unwavering devotion to the child she was forced to abandon at birth.
MUSKRAT RAMBLE will be available in print and electronic formats. Ms. Eichmann is aslo running a Goodreads Giveaway.
