Nineteen Seventy by Sarah M. Cradit
One of the seven will die. There's nothing they can do to stop it. “You definitely will not want to miss this one!” “Seriously one of the best books I have read.” “Exceeded every single one of my expectations.” “The way the story unravels and weaves through the lives of the family was remarkable.” “These characters are so complex yet so relatable that you will fall in love with them all.” “I will never forget a single moment.” “Mrs. Cradit has a way with words that will leave you wanting to read more.” "I absolutely love this entire series." “That ending tho!!!” 1970. New Orleans. The seven Deschanel siblings live with their long-suffering mother in an historic Garden District mansion. Each of them unique. Each of them born with a gift. In some cases, a gift they wish they could give back. When August Deschanel died, he left his wife, Irish Colleen, with more than seven children to raise. She inherited a job she was never prepared for: bringing up his heirs in a world she doesn't understand. She'd never seen true magic, not before marrying into the most prominent-and mysterious-family in New Orleans. Now, she can't escape it. Irish Colleen knows a terrible secret. Her youngest, a prophet, has seen a future that is unavoidable: the Deschanels will not leave 1970 without losing one of the seven. She knows only that it will happen, but not when, how… or to whom. Charles, the playboy heir apparent. Augustus, the family fixer. Colleen, the unfailing pragmatist. Madeline, the bleeding heart. Evangeline, the genius. Maureen, the dreamer. Elizabeth, the tortured one. One of her children must die, and Irish Colleen can do nothing to stop it.
Book Length: Novel - 150-320 PagesHistorical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
