Overview

The Cowans of Cowan, Tennesse had lived in the beautiful Shenadoah Valley for generations. Revered in this small community named for their forefathers, they lived a life of ease and privilige. During the Civlil War, young William Cowan, hardly more than a boy and the only male not in uniform, is left to manage the Cowan holdings. Somehow, this boy managed to hold onto his family's land. But the outcome of the war was not in his favor.Losing almost everything with the fall of the South, and after trying for 15 years to rebuild, William Cowan decided to sell his ancestral home and move his family west to Texas. Auctioning off his beloved Broadlawn Plantation, he hired three rail cars to move his wife Belle and his seven young children to a tiny town in Parker County Texas named Millsap. The transition from the grandeur of Broadlawn to a small two room log cabin is especially difficult in the harshness of sunbaked Texas. Adding to the problems of settling in strange surroundings is the other family traveling with them; Abner and Charlotte Cowan and their two children. Former slaves, now partners and friends of William and Belle. Will the townspeople accept them.........

Young Annie Cowan was only five years old when this journey began. This is her story

    An endearing legacy

    This is a delightful and insightful story of family and friends, and the strength and purpose passed on to their children as a continuing legacy. This is a family worth knowing and a period of time in history you get to explore through the lives of real people.

    Storytelling at it's best

    Story of a young girl's life in another century. The characters are real, vivid, and captivating. I finished this book wanting more. Best book I have read in a long time

    Loved it!

    This is one of the best books I have read in a long time! It reminds me of the 'Little House' books. My kids loved it as much as I did. Highly recommended if you are looking for a sweet, family friendly story!

    Highly recommended

    Sweet Annie is a wonderful story about family. This is one of those books that when you pick it up, you can't put it down. While reading this, you quickly realize that the author is a natural born story teller. She has taken all the old family stories and oral history that have been handed down to her over the years and woven them into a fasinating story. The characters come alive in the pages. However, the best part may be that the author has introduced her family's older generation to the younger generations.
