Eva McCall, local author, released her new novel, “Button Box,” on Jan. 14.
“I wrote ‘Button Box’ many years ago,” said McCall. “It feels so good to finally have readers read the journey that Abigail Sloan endures during the Civil War.”
Button box is a fastpaced 96,000 word historical fiction set during the Civil War. Abigail Sloan learns the hard lessons of life during this time, but is comforted by her button box, symbolizing all of humankind; all shapes, sizes and colors, living together.
McCall began writing the novel after the release of her first novel, “Edge of Heaven.” It wasn’t until summer 2013 that she decided to release it to the public.
“There's a saying, ‘never judge until you walk a mile in someone's shoes,’" said McCall. “The book helped me to realize just how true this saying is and hope it does the same for the reader.”
“Button Box” will be available at Books Unlimited and online bookstores.
Eva McCall is the author of the popular “Edge of Heaven” series and “Murder on Haint Branch,” which was released in early 2013.
