Continuing the saga that began in Red as a Rooster, Biscuit and her friends (and me too!) and the cat Marmalade uncover more ways the 200-year-old story of the founding of Martinsville is woven through their own lives. They find, too, that not all treachery is ancient. Not all murders are history.
Why does Sadie always wear yellow? Where is the hidden room? And why are the star-crossed lovers kept apart? Stewart's masterful weaving of this multi-generational story both fascinates and delights.
"In Red As A Rooster, Fran Stewart takes us on an adventure through the centuries, from witchcraft accusations in colonial America to present-day intrigue and mystery. Stewart's characters unearth one mystery after another while rummaging through the attic of an old house. Although many questions are answered, many more remain as the book ends. I can't wait for the next in the series - BLACK AS SOOT!" —Jaclyn Weldon White, author of The Witch of Ben Hill County
