Recently I read Tristi Pinkston's new book, Season of Sacrifice.
From one history lover to another, it was great to dive into someone else's work of fiction and just RELAX. I wasn't the one doing the research. I wasn't the one checking the facts. I wasn't the one trying to make history and fiction blend.
You can read my review of Season of Sacrifice here.
This book is very near and dear to Tristi's heart--it's the story of her great-great-grandparents, Ben and Sarah Perkins. She tried to get it published with a traditional publisher, but some of the topics were too controversial. (That always entices me to purchase a book immediately.) Most of all, I was inspired. I have a few family stories that are fascinating--maybe not an entire novel's worth--but I loved reading how Tristi brought in her family history and turned it into an exciting historical novel. Her children and grandchildren will have a precious inheritance in the form of this book.
Autographed copies can be purchased on Tristi's website.
