Cover Reveal: The Indigo Girl by Natasha Boyd

Check out the stunning cover of The Indigo Girl by Natasha Boyd. I can't get over how beautiful it is. I already read the e-arc of this book (and it was amaaaazing) but I really want to try to buy a hardcover once it releases because I just need the finished copy on my bookshelf. 


Title: The Indigo Girl
Author: Natasha Boyd
Publication: October 3rd 2017 by Blackstone Publishing
Genre: Historical Fiction
Pre-order on: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo

A deeply-researched and powerfully-written work of historical fiction, based on the untold story of Eliza Lucas, an extraordinary sixteen-year-old girl in Colonial-era South Carolina, whose actions were before their time: the story of the indigo girl.

In 1739, bright and determined sixteen-year-old Eliza Lucas is charged with keeping her family’s struggling plantations afloat, in her father’s absence. Learning of the high value of indigo, Eliza becomes determined to learn the secret of growing the enigmatic crop, believing it to be her family’s salvation, but everyone tells Eliza growing indigo in the region is impossible. Thwarted at nearly every turn, even by her own family, Eliza finds her only allies in an aging horticulturalist, an older and married gentleman lawyer, and a slave with whom she strikes a dangerous deal: teach her the intricate thousand-year-old secret process of making indigo dye and in return—against the laws of the day—she will teach the slaves to read. So develops an incredible story of romance, intrigue, hidden friendships, threats, ambition, betrayal, and sacrifice, based on historical documents and Eliza Lucas’ own letters.


I'm not sure yet when exactly I'm posting my review. I'm not sure if I want to wait until it's a little closer to the release date or if I'll just post it somewhere in May. Be on the look out for it, though! Also check out the Instagram of The Indigo Girl. It's definitely worth checking out. I love it!
