Historical Fiction with Greer Macallister and Denny S. Bryce
Greer Macallister joins us for Small Business Saturday ahead of the release of her latest novel, THE ARCTIC FURY, about a secret 1850s Arctic expedition—and a sensational murder trial unfolds when not all of them come back! She will be joined by author Denny S. Bryce (WILD WOMEN AND THE BLUES, coming in March) for a fun discussion of THE ARCTIC FURY and the historical fiction genre.
THE ARCTIC FURY - The next book from acclaimed author Greer Macallister! Virginia Reeve is summoned by an eccentric Brit with a compelling offer. Lady Jane Franklin wants her to lead a dozen women into the Arctic in search of the ships of her husband's lost expedition, and she's willing to pay handsomely. All four search attempts Lady Franklin has sponsored have failed. She has decided only a radical new approach can succeed: let women make the decisions.
A year later, Virginia stands trial for murder. The Arctic Fury uses the true story of Lady Franklin's quest to find her husband's lost expedition to spin a tale of bravery and hope.
