Review: The Road to Magnolia Glen by Pam Hillman

About the Book

1792, Natchez Trace, MS
Bitter since his eldest brother abandoned their family in Ireland, Quinn O’Shea travels to Natchez, Mississippi, ready to shuck the weight of his duty and set off on an adventure of his own. It’s time Connor, as head of the family, took responsibility for their younger siblings. While aboard ship, a run-in with three Irish sisters lands Quinn in the role of reluctant savior. Though it may delay his plans, he cannot abandon the Young sisters, especially the tenacious yet kind Kiera.

Upon arriving in the colonies, Kiera Young prepares to meet her intended and begin her new life. But she soon discovers the marriage her brother-in-law arranged was never meant to be, and a far more sinister deal was negotiated for her and her sisters.

Quinn offers to escort his charges safely to Breeze Hill Plantation and his brother’s care, fully intending to seek his freedom elsewhere. But the longer he remains, the greater his feelings toward Kiera grow and the more he comes to realize true freedom might be found in sacrifice.

About the Author

CBA Bestselling author PAM HILLMAN was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn’t afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove an Allis Chalmers 110. Even when her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn’t mind raking. Raking hay doesn’t take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that’s the kind of life every girl should dream of.

My Review

This is another enjoyable story by Pam Hillman. She takes us back to Natchez Trace and Breeze Hill. This time we get to know Connor O’Shea’s younger brother, Quinn. Maybe not quite as fiery as his brother but pretty close. I thoroughly enjoyed Kiera Young in the story and felt bad for her plight.

I’m not sure this story is as intense as the first book, but we do see several of our “friends” from book one. There was a secondary story that wove nicely into the main story giving it more depth. The story brought many emotions for me, including sadness for one of the secondary characters.  The author gives us characters that we can easily relate with and I saw myself more than once.

The author did receive criticism in the first book regarding Connor’s language and specifically the times he took the Lord’s name in vain. The author definitely took that criticism to heart and I do not believe you will find any offensive language in this story.

Although this is a book two, the author does a great job of giving enough background that you wouldn’t feel lost if you’ve not read the first book.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.
