This is a wonderful historical fiction romance with a bit of suspense. These are my favorite types of stories. I loved Isabella and Connor. I love when people from different groupings can find love despite the obstacles. This is a great time period also. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. I received this book from Tyndaleblog for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
The story takes place in the 1790s along the Natchez Trace, a historic forest trail extending from Natchez, Mississippi, to Nashville, Tennessee. With the murder of Isabella Bartholomew’s brother and a fire on the Breeze Hill Plantation that has incapacitated her father and damaged the cotton plants, Isabella needs help rebuilding. Since Connor O’Shea is on a mission to work and make sure his brothers in Ireland are able to join him in the states, Isabella hires him to repair the house in exchange for passage of his family to the US.
