Annnd . . . what do I think so far? This may be the first Civil War Historical Romance I've ever read. It takes place near the beginning of the Reconstruction period from a Southern perspective. I really enjoyed this clean read. It has a little more description than I usually like and skipped parts because of that, but I never skipped because of the plot--it's full of surprises.
After witnessing the death and destruction caused by the Civil War, Colonel Blake Wallace is eager to leave his once precious Southern homeland for the pristine shores of Brazil and the prospect of a new utopian community. Widow Eliza Crawford seeks passage on Wallace’s ship harboring a dirty secret—and a blossoming hope for a fresh start. But once the voyage begins, troubles abound. Dangers at sea and enemies from within threaten to keep Blake and Eliza from the new life—and love—they long for.
Deanna and I have been doing the "holding our breath" part this past month. Although our books published in the fall, it wasn't until this month that we sent one of them out for review. We were hoping other people like them too.
We've received some very positive reviews so far on Amazon and Goodreads--YAY! It's a little easier to breath now.
Never doubt how much your reviews mean to the author!
