The Last Heiress

by Mary Ellis


This is the first book I have read by Mary Ellis and I was enraptured throughout. Amanda Dunn travels from her homeland of England to North Carolina during America’s final days of the Civil War. She is sent to procure more cotton for their factories. Because of the war, nothing was being shipped and her father’s company was losing money.

The characters are very likeable, the history is fascinating and the storyline will keep you reading through the night. I did feel like in the last third of the book, some of the main characters changed. It seemed like they acted completely out of character and the book changed it’s course quite unexpectedly. It was still interesting and still held my attention, I just felt like it was very odd and didn’t make a lot of sense. I also felt as if the characters had no relationship with God. Surprisingly, that it never changed throughout.

I do recommend the book and hope you will pick up a copy! The link is in the picture above.

Thanks, netgalley, for the another awesome read! As always, I have given my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
