This series has been so good, and this book was no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed Caleb O’Shea. He had a definite edge to his personality and had some “issues.” But the burdens he carried made him an authentic character.
I could picture Alanah as the beautiful almost fairy like young lady, struggling to keep herself and soon into the story her sister safe. The story around her sister was very edgy and I appreciate how the author handled it and the fact that she brought that particular ugliest of the time into the story. It was good.
The uncle added another dimension to the story that reflected life then and now.
If you enjoyed the other stories in the series, you’ll enjoy this one. If you’ve not read any of the stories in the Natchez Trace series this is a good place to start. Although a series and in my opinion you’ll get the most out of the book by reading them in order, this one definitely stands on its own.
