I love to read storied that are set in the 1800s and really like the ones that take place in the south, as I am a southern belle myself. This book has three different stories that all tie together and it took place right after the War between the states. In the rich black belt part of Alabama is a great place to farm as the soil is black. But most of the people have lost their homes or parts of them because of the war. Savannah Carmichael was one of them, she had saved herself when their plantation home Cottonwood burned but her parents were killed in the fire. She thought she still owned the land and would someday build the home back but it was sold because of back taxes. Now her whole life is in turmoil. The second book concerned a doctor in the same town as the first one "Willow Bend" Tave Spencer was the daughter of Doctor Spencer and she was only twenty and had to help her father sometimes with the sick. She had a suitor but she did not love him, and thought that she would wind up being an old maid, that is until a man was brought off one of the paddle boats on the Alabama River that had been shot saving the captain's life. The third book is about a young lady that had to move to Willow Bend and live with her mother in the top of the mercantile with her uncle. She had high hopes but the town was so small where was she going to find a young man that she could love and be happy with. She wanted to better herself and that is where the young plantation owner of Pembrook came into the picture. Marcus Raines was trying to run the plantation that his father had left him, but he had never been taught how to manage, so he was having a time trying to make the plantation prosper. Thanks so much to Shalyn Sattle from Barbour Books for sending me this book and I chose to review it.
