The Will and the Wisp is a work of fiction in the historical fiction, family drama, and action and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author James Armstrong along with Sharon Kizziah-Holmes. In this truly unique adventure, we find ourselves following the Armstrong family, taken from true history. Brothers-in-law from the family team up with a dear old friend in Mississippi, and so begins a wild hunt for treasure which gives them all a lot more than they bargained for. When a Native American warning spells tragedy for all, a series of twists and shocks rock the Armstrongs. So begins a tale of toil, survival, and ultimately hope against hope.
Author team James Armstrong and Sharon Kizziah-Holmes have crafted a totally compelling work of historical fiction which is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. Tenant farmers take up the hero mantle in this sweeping and exciting family drama, and the rural setting and dialogue really make for an immersive atmosphere where you get to know O.C. and the family right from the off. I enjoyed Neil’s attitude and personality the most, but all of the characters were brought to life with loving attention, which is unsurprising since they are taken from real family history. The plot itself had a lot of unexpected twists and intriguing moments, but more than this, it was the family spirit and how they dealt with tough times that shone through. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Will and the Wisp as an inspiring and original work for history and drama fans everywhere.
