Women journalists--United States--Fiction, Slavery--United States--Fiction, Plantations--South Carolina--Fiction
Mia is an underestimated and overworked intern at a journalism company in New York City, but everything changes when she’s sent to Charleston, South Carolina on an assignment. Mia attempts to complete her assignment and return home, but before long, she gets wrapped up in taking care of a centuries-old plantation. When Mia finds out that there is no known history about the place, she can’t help but try to fill in the gap with her imagination. But how can she write a history of a place from scratch? As her stories break down and angels and dragons begin to creep into her writing, Mia risks losing herself in the process.
