Valdosta, Georgia – 1863. While America is ravaged by the chaos of the Civil War, Magnolia Mae (or Maggie, as she is lovingly called) suddenly becomes a young widow and inherits her parents’ plantation. Surrounded by scheming neighbors, connivingly jealous southern belles, and unscrupulous slaveowners; Maggie Mae is a sparkling diamond in the mire of prejudice and hatred. She repays with love, kindness, and compassion. A staunch abolitionist, she treats her slaves with dignity and respect, ignoring the centuries-old tradition of oppression and bondage. When a handsome young Yankee named Wesley appears, he tosses her into a tumultuous sea of passion, delight, anxiety, and unshakable defiance of the ways of the South. Find out what happens when a forbidden love challenges the evils of slavery and bigotry. This riveting page-turner takes you to a land devastated by war where a forbidden love blossoms.
Missy Maggie Mae is not your typical Southern Belle, quite the contrary. She is strong-willed and determined to preserve her family plantation from surrounding malevolent, repulsive, evil doers. Then the handsome and bold Wesley appears and his gallantry and sassiness hits Maggie Mae like a cyclone, not allowing her to save herself. Action, danger and romance makes this novel Joanne Fisher’s best thus far.
