Teaser Tuesday: Griswoldville

Like a friend giving you shelter from a storm, the Wheel of Time has turned ‘round to Teaser Tuesday.

So much for trying to create a routine.

Thanks, Florence.

But there’s been positives to come from this frustrating situation. As I told you Saturday, my good friend Jordan Poss has written another historical fiction novel, this time about the Civil War.

The Goodreads Blurb:

Madison Co., Georgia, 1864 — 14-year old Georgie Wax has spent the three years since his father left for the war looking after the family farm. With his mother and young brothers, Georgie and his grandfather Lafayette “Fate” Eschenbach have brought in the crops every fall, slaughtered the hogs every winter, and kept the farm running as the faraway war stretches on longer and longer and his father seems ever farther and farther away.

But when the enemy reaches their own state, Georgie and his grandfather are called up to the militia to protect Georgia against the invaders. Drilled mercilessly, mocked for lack of experience, and put to work at manual labor, Georgie finds war isn’t the adventure he imagined it to be. Only with Atlanta fallen and the enemy on the move will Georgie, Fate, and their fellow Georgia militiamen find a chance to prove themselves and save their homes from destruction—at a railside factory town called Griswoldville.


The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 191:

We had heard about the home guard, albeit as rumor, and well knew what happened to deserters. The stories that had reached us out of Bragg's army, even accointing for the perversions of newspapers, were hair-raising.
