What a wonderful historical romance, set in the Civil War ear! It is so captivating. Mary Ellis has done it yet again, written another fabulous book! I could picture the grand homes, gardens and the stores in the story. There were characters that I loved and one that I felt like slapping at times. A story that was so well written that the characters were practically brought to life in the telling of this story. If you love historical fiction be sure to get your copy of this book today! You won’t be disappointed with this book. Looking forward to the next book that comes out by Mary Ellis. 5 stars!
