Project: Simulacrum: The Oaks Remain a novel by Julia J. Gibbs
Services: Manuscript Review, Editing
In a world divided by blood and race, VeraLee Harper comes of age under the Guardian Oaks of her family’s isolated plantation in southern Alabama. Red Oaks stands frozen in time, a haven for Simulacrum people for generations, against the chaotic world of the cold-hearts, the Friguscor. Life quickly unravels when her own split-second decision breaks the Simulacrum law she is bound to keep. The blood moons have begun, the watchers have returned, and war with the Friguscors seems inevitable. As she struggles to reconcile deep love for her family and loyalty to her people with the reality she is coming to know, she realizes she is marked by more than the tseeyen on her arm. Many have a plan for VeraLee Harper, including the mysterious man who materializes from her dreams, but only she can decide which path she will choose.
