Copper Magic

Julia Mary Gibson

Debut author Julia Mary Gibson explores turn-of-the-century Native American culture, ecology, and conservation, in her historical fiction novel, "Copper Magic." The year is 1906, and on the shores of Lake Michigan twelve-year-old Violet Blake unearths an ancient talisman--a copper hand. Violet's touch warms the copper hand and it begins to reveal glimpses of another time. Violet is certain that the copper hand is magic--and if anyone is in need of its powers, it's Violet. Her mother and adored baby brother are gone, perhaps never to return. Her heartbroken father can't seem to sustain the failing farm on the outskirts of Pigeon Harbor, on the shores of Lake Michigan. Surely the magic of the copper hand can make things right for Violet and restore her fractured family. Violet makes a wish. But her ignorant carelessness unleashes formidable powers--and her attempts to control them jeopardizes not only herself, but the entire town of Pigeon Harbor. In "Copper Magic," land and waters are alive with memories, intentions, and impulses. Magic alters Violet and brings her gifts--but not always the kind she thinks she needs.
