Stone Field
Author: Christy Lenzi
Publisher: Macmillan
Publication Date: March 26, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads): In a small town on the brink of the Civil War, Catrina finds a man making strange patterns in her family’s sorghum crop. He’s mad with fever, naked, and strikingly beautiful. He has no memory of who he is or what he’s done before Catrina found him in Stone Field. But that doesn’t bother Catrina because she doesn’t like thinking about the things she’s done before either.

Catrina and Stonefield fall passionately, dangerously, in love. All they want is to live with each other, in harmony with the land and away from Cat’s protective brother, the new fanatical preacher, and the neighbors who are scandalized by their relationship. But Stonefield can’t escape the truth about who he is, and the conflict tearing apart the country demands that everyone take a side before the bloodbath reaches their doorstep.

Inspired by Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, Stone Field is a passionate and atmospheric story of how violence and vengeance pervert the human spirit, and how hatred can be transcended by love.

Stone Field sounds like such an intriguing book that I can’t wait to start reading! I created this post before I had received an ARC copy of this book and I decided to go ahead and feature it anyways because I think that you all will be excited to know more about this one too!

Stone Field  is a historical fiction that is also a retelling. Not just a retelling, but a retelling of Wuthering Heights! This sounds so epic! I’m sure this book is going to be as amazing as the synopsis makes it sound. I can’t wait until March when we can all fangirl over it!

    Okay, okay, I am someone who has a soft spot for retellings. I don’t know why, but I love them all. I am a big fan of historical fiction, although I really hated the classic Wuthering Heights. It’s actually one of the worst books I have ever read >> So I have added this to my TBR and am interested in finding out whether I will enjoy the retelling more than the original.
