Spring Book Sale: ‘Conjure Woman’s Cat’
Spring, Supermoon, Solar Eclipse
To celebrate, Conjure Woman’s Cat is on sale on Kindle today and tomorrow.
While they might prefer sitting on the back porch and drinking moonshine out of a Mason jar, the cat and the woman have things to do. In the story, set in the Jim Crow Florida Panhandle of the 1950s, the police aren’t inclined to investigate a crime against a black girl named Mattie because the police and the KKK are pretty much the same.
Even the church is willing to let things be.
Can Eulalie and Lena take on the Klan in the piney woods and bring justice after what happened to Mattie behind the sawmill? If so, though Eulalie will have to sort out the mistakes of her past before she can conjure solutions for the here and now.
Early Praise for Conjure Woman’s Cat
- “I dearly loved Eulalie and Willie, I could easily have been friends with them both. The more I read the name Eulalie the more I adored it. It has a beautiful rhythm and made me smile every time I read it. Eulalie was a wise woman and deserved the respect she was given. Kudos to Malcolm R. Campbell for a story well told.” – BigAl’s Books & Pals
- “The book is narrated by Lena, cat and spirit companion to Eulalie, Conjure Woman and human being extraordinaire. Eulalie (don’t you just love that name?) has an innate goodness that can’t be denied, but she’s no saint. She’s devout and dedicated to doing God’s work, and has a willingness to confront what others refuse to acknowledge. Her determination to set straight the injustices in her world, combined with her resilience and wisdom, made this reader fall in love with her.” – Word Nerd Amazon Reader Review
- “When any book is narrated by an animal, readers have to suspend their disbelief from the get-go. I didn’t find that difficult with this book. I was quickly drawn in by Lena’s unique voice, and by the mysterious goings-on around her and Eulalie. I loved the way Campbell made magic part of the fabric of the place…Readers of magic realism will appreciate Conjure Woman’s Cat. Highly recommended.” – Lynne Cantwell, hearth/myth – Rursday Reads
