Recent Favorite NaNo-WIP Line: Instead of a line, how about my short synopsis?
Sixteen-year-old Danielle Claiborne didn’t want to have anything to do with the war between the states. But when Nashville is taken by Union soldiers, the war comes to Danielle. It doesn’t take the invaders long to discover Danielle’s secret: She has the Sight, the ability to draw on the power of the stars. And that makes her a weapon, one the Union wants to wield.
When the Union offers her mother and her home protection, Danielle agrees to give up the life she knew to become Danny Clemmons, a Seer for the Federals.
