A Southern Love Story
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Savannah Darby would do almost anything to revisit her family home. So when the new owner Aidan Bedford seeks to redecorate the house for his fiancée, Savannah jumps at the opportunity. But can she find the box her father supposedly hid there during the war before her assignment is completed? And before she sees yet another battle lost on the home front—this time, a battle of the heart.
Not the audience for this sort of fiction
Ms. Alexander is a decent writer, I think with a little effort she could come up with a way to depict the South that is more level-headed. What a tragedy the Civil War was for those poor plantation owners! To be fair, I'm sure it led to suffering and hardship for them as well as for the entire South. I'm aware that there is more than one narrative running through the history of that beautiful
part of the country. But an attempt to recreate the South with no reference to African Americans or slavery is disconcerting and vacuous at best. I know that isn't the crux of the story and it might introduce elements that complicate what is meant to be a light hearted romance, but really, it's the two-ton elephant sitting in the room. Not talking about it made me uneasy and irritated. A disappointing read from a talented writer.
To Mend a Dream
I didn't want this story to end! I wish the author had developed more characters and expanded the tale. A great read!
