A National Book Award Finalist
is 1870 and Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. An elderly widower who has lived through three wars and fought in two of them, the captain enjoys his rootless, solitary existence.
In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna’s parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows.
Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous. Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act “civilized.” Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forging a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land.
Arriving in San Antonio, the reunion is neither happy nor welcome. The captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember-strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Captain Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become-in the eyes of the law-a kidnapper himself. Exquisitely rendered and morally complex, News of the World is a brilliant work of historical fiction that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.

  • The first thing I did when I finished savoring News of the World, often reading sentences and paragraphs over again because the writing is so beautiful, is I turned to the first page and read it a second time! I just wasn't ready to put the book down. (I read a lot and have never done that before.) Then I read Simon the Fiddler and I have Enemy Woman on my shelf. Thank you Paulette for your gorgeous, descriptive writing and interesting stories. I look forward to reading all of your books.

  • I loved, Loved, LOVED the audiobook! Rich characters. Great plot. Fascinating perspective. And, oh my! What Johanna can do with a roll of dimes! And to top it all - I always love a well-written "Daddy-Daughter" story. This is my American West Silas Marner - with LOADS more action!

  • I love your writing, but I'm confused by your geography. I'm currently reading " Stormy Weather". I can't understand why you mentioned passing Dallas when the family is traveling from Whorton to Mineral Wells which are both south of Dallas.

    • Nancy Lozo Yeah, while the story is great, the historical and geographical errors are distracting to those familiar with the places named in the story.

  • I see that News of the World may be adapted for a movie. Movie or no, this novel is one of the best novels I have ever read.

    • @Ellen Jennings Apparently Simon made a brief appearance in "News of the World," too. I read it too many years ago to remember, though.

    • They're definitely making into a film and have pretty much wrapped filming. It's starring Tom Hanks as Captain Kidd and is set to be in theaters December 2020.

  • Paulette Jiles I am just so enamored of your work -every paragraph, every phrase transports me. I have already read "News of the World" an have lately been reading "The Color of Lightning" aloud to my cat. Hearing the words even in my own voice, makes the scene you evoke even more resonant and present. The landscapes loom large with big skies and characters full of life --everything so present. My real life just falls away. What a gift you posses! As an avid reader of fiction, particularly western themed fiction, I don't say this lightly but you are true talent.
