Publisher's Summary

Debut author Julia Mary Gibson explores turn-of-the-century Native American culture, ecology, and conservation, in her historical fiction novel Copper Magic.
The year is 1906, and on the shores of Lake Michigan 12-year-old Violet Blake unearths an ancient talisman - a copper hand. Violet's touch warms the copper hand and it begins to reveal glimpses of another time. Violet is certain that the copper hand is magic - and if anyone is in need of its powers, it's Violet. Her mother and adored baby brother are gone, perhaps never to return. Her heartbroken father can't seem to sustain the failing farm on the outskirts of Pigeon Harbor, on the shores of Lake Michigan. Surely the magic of the copper hand can make things right for Violet and restore her fractured family. Violet makes a wish. But her ignorant carelessness unleashes formidable powers - and her attempts to control them jeopardizes not only herself, but the entire town of Pigeon Harbor.
In Copper Magic, land and waters are alive with memories, intentions, and impulses. Magic alters Violet and brings her gifts - but not always the kind she thinks she needs.

Delightful storytelling at its best

Highly recommend for all ages. Delightful characters focusing on a main character who invites in her world of loss, courage, magic and wonder. Vivid imagery and storytelling allow us listeners it readers to be taken on a journey.

Surprisingly good story

I thought it might be a coming of age tale with fairies thrown in. It was, instead, a very insightful look at that place and time. Magic may be involved, or not. The narrator does a great job with the dialogs and voices. She really makes the story come to life.
