    This is a marvelous book set in post civil war Mississippi The well developedplot and interesting characters drew my interest from the start and held it throughout I had an immediate feeling for the heroine and felt like I was there with her in those magnificent antebellum mansions and walking the lovely villa garden paths Especially appreciated was the spiritual theme which was well brought out by the characters actions and the various subplots

    This novel is an extremely well written tale of Lauren a woman who has lost everything well almost everything when several unfortunate events take place in her life after the Civil War Things in the South have gotten downright depressing after war With confederate money being worth nothing many prominent families are forced to leave their plantation homes and make another way in the world Though Laura’s family has survived the economic devastation of the war that doesn’t mean they are free from troubleThis book was a delight to read I couldn’t put it down But at some points I felt very sad for Laura Is God’s plan for her good? It seems like one tragedy follows another and then there is the matter of the man that keeps trying to kill or injure her She isn’t sure which is his goal If you like historical fiction you will love this book The details were definitely well researched There wasn’t one inappropriate moment in it eitherI received a free copy of this book for an honest review
