Praise For…

"A fast-paced read with multiple twists, the novel delivers a history lesson wrapped inside a murder mystery and ghost story. Winters deftly captures the many injustices faced by marginalized people in the years following World War I as well as a glimmer of hope for the better America to come. A riveting story of survival, determination, love, and friendship."

— Kirkus

" A powerful, gripping, and exceptionally well-executed glimpse into a little-known corner of U.S. history."

— Booklist

"Setting Hanalee in the backdrop of Prohibition-era Oregon, punched up with bootleggers, a hidden gay relationship, the public and private face of the Ku Klux Klan, and a dash of the supernatural makes for a delightfully unpredictable page-turner. VERDICT Unique and riveting historical fiction that feels anything but dated."

— School Library Journal

“History, mystery…for To Kill A Mockingbird fans.”

— Justine Magazine

This is genre-pushing historical fiction that will surprise and enlighten readers.
