Ten years after the Civil War, Lydia is a Yankee that’s unknowingly engaged to a married man, traveling South across the country to start completely over and reinventing/finding herself in this beautiful book. I mean, come on! Look at that gorgeous cover!! Tell me you don’t want to pick this one up!

Amanda Cabot has a way of intertwining spiritual matters, deep characters and beautifully vivid visuals in her writing. You can see it all so clearly. I absolutely loved reading this book. Through all the trials Lydia has to work through, there’s hope and a spirit of determination. Most importantly, there’s no whining and I LOVE that!

You will fall in love with the citizens of Cimarron Creek as they fight for their way of life and learn how to love a Yankee. Be sure to pick up a copy of this great read! (link in pic above) Thanks for this fabulous book in exchange for my review. As always, this is my honest opinion! Here’s to many more!!

The Heir of Brownlie Manor

by Anita Stansfield

Ahhh…Regency novels. You know I love it! (Well, ALMOST Regency. 1808 is close enough)

Anita is a new author to me and I was pleasantly surprised. This book is from the point of view of both Thomas and Ruth. They are heavy thinkers and a considerable amount of their thoughts are written. That was a little difficult to me as I like to get to the point of things, but, overall, it was really well written.

Thomas has been raised by aristocratic parents that have trained him to treat others well and not to follow the snobbery of their peers. When he comes along a girl that is in desperate need, he can not help himself but reach out to her and become her savior. What he doesn’t fully expect is that she became his.

This is a really sweet book with characters that are probably nicer than anyone you will ever meet in real life! haha. It’s a beautiful love story with some surprising twists and intrigues. I definitely recommend!!!

Thank you for this great book in exchange for my review. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
