Editorial Reviews

Review

''Natasha's writing is a fresh and modern spin on great Southern literature.'' --Ashley Pullo, author of the New Amsterdam Series, praise for the author

''Indigo Girl by Natasha Boyd is a lively historical novel about Eliza Lucas Pinckney, a sixteen-year-old girl left in charge of her absent father's three South Carolina plantations in 1739 and who became the first person to produce commercial-grade indigo in the American colonies. South Carolinians and fans of historical fiction will enjoy this peek into Colonial life. The novel also works as a YA crossover and should be of interest to SC history teachers.'' --Jill Hendrix, Fiction Addiction (Greenville, SC)

''If you love historical fiction, this book should be on your fall reading list....It is based on historical documents and the real-life Eliza Lucas.'' --Southern Living

''Based on a true story, The Indigo Girl is an outstanding example of historical fiction...Through Eliza's strong internal voice and excerpts from actual letters, Boyd effortlessly brings this character to life. Readers will love discovering the amazing story of a virtually unknown girl who changed the course of history.'' --Booklist (starred review)

''Without preaching or judging, the narrative integrates the politics of gender inequality, race, and class into Eliza's quest for confidence and allies...Boyd's first historical novel captivates on every level, refreshingly crafting the eighteenth-century world of real-life Eliza Lucas Pinckney. Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert's The Signature of All Things will savor.'' --Library Journal (starred review)

''Boyd paints a vivid portrait of a young woman entrepreneur's defiant and revolutionary spirit...Actual excerpts from some of Eliza's correspondence provide another layer of authenticity to the story...Rich and colorful...The Indigo Girl is a riveting narrative about a woman who defied convention to become one of the country's first women entrepreneurs.'' --Foreword Reviews

''Boyd excels in her descriptions of coastal South Carolina and its climate, in the intricacies of eighteenth-century colonial society, and in her strong characters. Her information regarding indigo production adds interest to the narrative. Eliza is an engaging heroine, both compelling and realistic, who discovers her strengths and capabilities amid a series of setbacks and frustrations. This is a solidly researched and well-crafted story based on the life of a woman, Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722-1793), largely forgotten today, but who left an important legacy.'' --Historical Novels Review

''Boyd excels in her descriptions of coastal South Carolina and its climate, in the intricacies of eighteenth-century colonial society, and in her strong characters.

This is a solidly researched and well-crafted story based on the life of a woman, Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722-1793), largely forgotten today, but who left an important legacy.'' --Historical Novels Review

''(Audiobook narrator) Maarleveld characterizes Eliza so well that listeners will feel they know her, and understand her complex emotions and struggles to succeed in a man's world. Her excellent reading enlivens a large cast...Pacing is spot on.'' --Booklist (starred audio review)

''(Audiobook narrator) Saskia Maarleveld reads with a touching sincerity that brings Eliza to life....Recommended for libraries wishing to enrich their historical fiction collections by including a story about a notable colonial woman.'' --Library Journal (audio review)

''This fictional account...unfolds through (audiobook narrator) Saskia Maarleveld's first-person narration...There are moments of girlishness that seep into Maarleveld's tone when the main character reminisces about her childhood, but Eliza's steadfast determination is conveyed clearly through Maarleveld's emotional intonations. Fear, frustration, and excitement are believably depicted throughout the story...However, there's also a romantic tone in Maarleveld's voice that fully transports the listener to a different time and place.'' --AudioFile

About the Author

Natasha Boyd is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author of contemporary romantic Southern fiction and historical fiction. She holds a bachelor of science in psychology and also has a background in marketing and public relations. After hearing one of Eliza's descendants speaking about Eliza's accomplishments, the need to tell her story became so overwhelming that it couldn't be ignored. Hence, The Indigo Girl was born.
