First a disclaimer...I really like this author! That said Blue Camilla was such a good book. Keyes researches her area and topic, then fills in with very real people. This book is set in 1880's LA and is centered around the rice culture that developed there. The Cajun culture in that area also plays a large part in the story. The plot does not go quite the way you expect it too but is very satisfying, none the less. Excellent historical fiction!
