"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Praise for The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson

“ ‘I have been to hangings before, but never my own…From this riveting beginning to the last perfect word, Nancy Peacock grabs her reader by the throat and makes him hang on for dear life as the action moves from a Louisiana sugar plantation to life among the western Comanches, bringing to blazing life her themes of race and true love caught in the throes of history. The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson is as deeply moving and exciting an American saga as has ever been penned.” -Lee Smith, Author of Guests on Earth and Dime Store

“Such a powerful story, so beautifully written. Peacock captures the era perfectly, with just the right amount of historical detail woven seamlessly into the fabric of the story. Unlike some historical novels loaded with digressions that are merely undigested chunks of raw research, this book is just the opposite—a fully realized world with rich, vivid characters. The novel hard to put down—and impossible to forget.” Donna Lucey – author of Sargent’s Women: Four Lives Behind the Canvas

“A magnificent, immersive, breathtaking work of historical fiction. Nancy Peacock has written a beautifully crafted, richly detailed novel inhabited by morally complex and fully realized characters, enthralling and heartbreaking in equal measure.” -Jennifer Chiaverini – author of Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker
