    An American Family!

    This book takes place in the middle of the 1800's about 20 years before the civil war. The main character Charmaine get's a job as governess to a very wealthy an influential family. What she doens't realize is that this family has more secrets than she can imagine. The story has many twists, and it always leaves you in suspense. The characters are intereresting and perfectly formulated to this story. I cried and laughed during all three novels. This final one was my favorite because of it's finality! It's truly a story that is captivating and I couldn't put the book down for three days. I reccomend this trilogy to anyone who enjoys a story about drama and romance. You honestly get so much of everything!!

    Worth the Wait

    I treated myself to an early Christmas gift with the purchase of this book. I have been eagerly awaiting its release. This is the third entry in the Collete trilogy and is just as captivating as the first two. It follows "A Silent Ocean Away" and "Decision and Destiny". This trilogy is an easy to read but hard to put down adventure in the lives of the members of the Duvoisin family. It is a "must read" for lovers of historical fiction.

    a fine sweeping nineteenth century Americana

    In 1837 Virginia, Governess Charmaine Ryan fears the Duvoisin family empire will soon collapse. The aging patriarch widower Frederick struggles to keep the plantation and shipping empire afloat, but increasingly believes his efforts are futile as it seems too little too late. His son John left insisting he will never step on the Duvoisin Plantation again. His illegitimate son Paul wants to be the head of the shipping empire, but Frederick has doubts that is enflamed by his second wife Agatha who wants everything with no rivalry from his sons. Meanwhile Paul also insists he loves Charmaine while John comes home reluctantly. Although unsure how she feels about the two offspring, Charmaine will not allow the shrew to destroy her beloved Duvoisin clan as she promised Frederick's first wife Colette that she will tale care of the men.

    The final tale in the Colette's Prayer Duvoisin family saga (see Decision and Destiny: Colette's Legacy and A Silent Ocean Away: Colette's Dominion) is a fine sweeping nineteenth century Americana. The story line focuses deeply on the interrelation extended family dynamics of the Duvoisin brood using flashbacks to inform newcomers how the clan reached that point of implosion. Although the finish is too emoting and melodramatic, fans of the saga will relish the heavyweight championship battle between Charmaine and Agatha with the stakes being the souls of the Duvoisin family.
