Among The Fair Magnolias by Tamera Alexander, Shelley Gray, Dorothy Love and Elizabeth Musser - Book Blog Tour Stop, Review and Giveaway





About The Book:

Among the Fair Magnolias (Thomas Nelson, July 2015)

In the most turbulent decade of our nation’s history, four Southern women—destinies forged by birth, hearts steeled by war—face near impossible choices on their journeys in life . . . and in love.

To Mend a Dream by Tamera Alexander
Savannah Darby would do almost anything to revisit her family home. So when new owner, Aidan Bedford, a Boston attorney and former Union soldier, seeks to redecorate the house for his fiancée, Savannah jumps at the opportunity. But the clock is ticking. Can she find the box her father supposedly hid there during the war before her assignment is completed? And before she sees yet another battle lost on the home front. This time, one of the heart.

An Outlaw’s Heart by Shelley Gray
When Russell Stark returns to Fort Worth, he’s determined to begin a new life. But when he arrives at his mother’s homestead, he discovers she’s very ill, and the woman he loved is still as beautiful and sweet as he remembered. With time running out, Russell must come to terms with both his future and his past.

A Heart So True by Dorothy Love
Abigail knows all too well what is expected of her: to marry her distant cousin Charles and take her place in society. But her heart belongs to another. A terrible incident forces Abby to choose between love and duty.

Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser
Emily has a secret: She’s in love with one of the freedmen on her family’s plantation. Meanwhile, another man declares his love for her. Emily realizes some things are not as they seem and secrets must be kept in order to keep those she loves safe.

My Thoughts:

I was so impressed with the quality of each of these novellas. The four authors packed in so much history and romance into each of these charming stories!  Spanning in time from 1860 to 1878, each tale is unique in it's flavor and each feature a cast of characters that are memorable.

Perhaps my favorite tale out of the four is Shelley Gray's. It could be because it is set in Texas during the Post Civil-War era and features a handsome cowboy, or it could be because Shelley is a special favorite author of mine - it's just a good, Western-flavored story that has a satisfying ending.

Each of the stories in this collection are well written and will be a delight for readers to delve into.  I highly recommend "Among The Fair Magnolias."
