Bargains, betrayal, brutal truth and a touch of hoodoo make this a fascinating tale.

The Scribe is a dystopic tale of survival in post plague and war-wrecked world. It’s also a brutal Appalachian fairy tale. The scribe is woman sought after to write letters—confessions. The last of her line, she remains in her family’s home due to a complicated truce—and there she plans to stay, out of grief and guilt, until Hendricks comes to bargain for a letter. Bargains, betrayal, brutal truth and a touch of hoodoo make this a fascinating tale.
