Today’s Teaser Tuesday: Stone Field by Christy Lenzi

Stone Field Christy LenziTitle: Stone Field
Author: Christy Lenzi
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Publication Date: March 29, 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.

Amazon “Book Depository

I have just started this one, and it is interesting so far. I am very intrigued by the Civil War aspects!

Book Quotes: Stone Field

“I don’t give a damn about being proper. It’s just a mess of rules that people make up so they can have a say in other people’s business.”

    From your intriguing bit here it sounds a bit like a retelling of The Summer of My German Soldier. I like the sound of this very much. Thanks for sharing.

      Wuthering heights breaks my heart! I don’t know if I’d read this but I quite agree about the being proper!

        The book was slow to start, but it ended up being one that I really enjoyed. I was really surprised by it and I hope that if you do pick it up, you will enjoy it! 🙂

    Lovely! Let me play along with my current beautiful read: Shattered Blue (The Light Trilogy) by Lauren Bird Horowitz.
    Here is the teaser: Somewhere in Callum’s better consciousness, beneath the shadow, a little voice cried out for mercy. But it was small, and faint. NO SPOILER 😉
