Veronica G. Henry’s 2021 Bacchanal is a standalone historical fantasy novel.
Baton Rogue in 1939 has very little to recommend itself to Eliza Meek. It’s too bad that having landed in Baton Rogue, Eliza has yet to find the means to escape it. Not only is Eliza on the wrong side of the colour line, but her unusual talents terrify the citizens of Baton Rouge.
Salvation arrives in the form of the Bacchanal Carnival.
