In the aftermath of the Civil War, Josephine vows to rebuild her family's once-grand plantation. But in the face of such destruction, is redemption possible?
After the Civil War, Josephine Weatherly and her mother return home to a ravaged plantation. Josephine's father and brother have been killed, and her other brother, Daniel, has been broken by the horrors he witnessed. The women, along with their faithful servant, Lizzie, vow to rebuild their home. But can Josephine's faith be restored as well? VERDICT Seven-time Christy winner Austin (Wonderland Creek) deftly weaves this story about the Reconstruction era. Strong heroines with depth make this a sure bet not only for CF fans, but mainstream fiction readers as well. Recommend it to readers of Lynn Morris and Sandra Byrd. (c) Copyright 2012.
