Default Charis in the World of Wonders

I have a new (pub date: March 26) novel out from Ignatius and hope you will take a look. If you look HERE, you'll find blurbs and comments, as well as a book description and exterior and interior images by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, who has illuminated so many of my books.

A couple of sample comments: “Charis in the World of Wonders confirms once more Marly Youmans' place among the magi. There is indeed ‘a dark and amazing intricacy in the ways of Providence’, as this spellbinding novel attests.”—John Wilson, Contributing Editor, Englewood Review of Books
“Imagine if William Faulkner had decided to rewrite Last of the Mohicans. What you would have is something like Charis in the World of Wonders—a wild adventure tale written with grace and insight. Youmans' prose is fluid, sharply witty, and deeply rich in symbolism—the work of a master.” —J. Augustine Wetta, OSB, Author of The Eighth Arrow and Humility Rules

It's not my first go-round with a book launch that intersects with large historical events, but I hope you'll make a little time to consider Charis in the World of Wonders and her adventurous life in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

And if you do visit my website, please hop over and take a look at the page for my 2019 poetry collection, "The Book of the Red King" (Montreal: Phoenicia Publishing), a sequence of poems about the Fool, the Red King, and the Fool's beloved, Precious Wentletrap.

Good health and happy reading to you...
