CHILD OF THE SOUTH by Joanna Catherine Scott

is available now at

From the publisher:

From the award-winning author of The Road from Chapel Hill, comes a story of loyalty, duty, and love in the days following the Civil War.

Returning to characters introduced in her previous novel, acclaimed author Joanna Catherine Scott explores the terrain of a devastated South, where the war is over – but conflict lives on. Having endured years of hardship, Eugenia Mae Spotswood returns to Wilmington to find out who her mother is, only to be met with racism and hatred…. Until she is befriended by the most powerful Negro leader in the state Senate.

Also driven forward are the strong-minded ex-slave Tom and his crippled former enemy Clyde Bricket. Tom spent the last years of the war working for the Union as a spy. Now, Clyde watches as his family farm slowly dies. Only if they work together can they survive.



  1. I just realized how much time between your comment and mine had passed. I following the follow-ups now so we can chat. 😉

  2. Great trailer. Book trailers are one of my new favorite things. Thanks for stopping by my blog (I loved your comments on The Forgotten Country book discussion) and I’m so glad to “meet” you here. You narrate some of my favorite authors. I’m off to find a book and have a listen. I look forward to getting to know you.

    • I know, we do seem to have authors in common! Let me know if you want to review something and I’ll do my best to get you a review copy. Forgotten Country was amazing, though so sad and frustrating.

      • Oh, I’m so glad you said frustrating. That’s what I felt for so much of the book.

        And thanks for the review copy offer. I will definitely take you up on that. I can’t wait to hear you work.

  3. I tried to watch the video and it says “This video is private.”

    • Thank you! I just changed it.
