Surviving Savannah (out March 9th)
Patti Callahan writes about “The Titanic of the South” in her latest novel. In 1838, a steamship named Pulaski mysteriously sinks after a boiler explodes. The wreckage is discovered 180 years later. A museum offers Everly Winthrop the opportunity to compile information about the ship for one of their exhibitions and provides her with items retrieved directly from it. But the fables associated with the ship’s untimely demise intrigue Everly. As she searches for truths surrounding the cryptic ruins, she uncovers stories of women survivors who were forced to make painful decisions. This historical fiction explores survival and the lengths some go to ensure it. March 9, 2020
