Katie and Mayme leave their beloved Rosewood plantation in the Carolinas to travel by train to Philadelphia, but the latter is required to ride in the last car, the ¿Coloreds Only¿ coach. Upon reaching the city, a stunned Katie finds herself alone as the ¿Coloreds Only¿ car is missing. She fears her free friend may have been sold along with the other Negro passengers into slavery perhaps in the Caribbean. Deputy Rob Paxton offers to help find and if necessary rescue Mayme. He and Katie investigate. At the same time back in the Carolinas the KKK plans to burn Rosewood to the ground as a warning for anyone else who upgrades slaves as equals to white folks. One lonely rider hopes to save the families residing there. However he has no idea how the mostly former slaves will react between fight and flight for the plantation is life to all of them and will continue to be so if he makes it on time. This terrific Reconstruction Era Carolina Cousins thriller is a superb conclusion to one of the best nineteenth century Americana series on the market today. The story line is fast-paced and the key characters fully developed. However, it is the time period that so vividly comes alive as different forces vie for their vision of society in the aftermath of the destructive Civil War turning the ¿peace¿ into further hostility. MISS KATIE¿S ROSEWOOD is an incredible historical that can be read alone but enhanced with the previous winning tales (see A PERILOUS PROPOSAL, THE SOLDIER'S LADY, and NEVER TOO LATE).

This book like all the others is so exciting and full of hope. It gave you a message from god without pushing you into anything. It shares their lives with you and lets you see that the different races of the world can be friends. It tells of the old south and how wrong they were to treat the slaves as they did and the whites who tried to help them. It lets you form your own oppinions and it gets you closer to the lord.

I loved reading about the lives of Katie and Mayme. This last addition to the story was a saddening one. Learning about their leaving Rosewood for good was upsetting, I felt as though my "family" was breaking up. This book does have a happy ending letting you know about how all the characters lives play out til their old and ultimately death. I will be starting the Quaker series today. I look forward to sitting in front of my fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa and reading about the Davidson family.

All four of the books in this series are about 250 pages. All are well written and edited with likable characters. A new character is introduced, a young man, living on the plantation, at the first of the book. I have no idea where he came from. These books are Bethany House, which means Christian fiction. The other three books had a perfect balance of religion and story. The first 100 pages of this book was nothing but preaching. Extreme preaching at that. It cost $5.99 and had very little story. But it did pull some loose ends together and the conclusion of the book and the series was satisfactory. An Aunt is introduced into the mix and she was not in the other books, nor do I remember an aunt being mentioned. I liked the first three books much better. I gave them 4 1/2 stars each. For readers ages 14 and up, more chick lit them mixed sex readers, no sex ,cursing or extreme violence. A D
