If you love a good historical series this one is a MUST read!! Spanning from 1836 to the War of Northern Agression it follows a family of siblings and their hardships and triumphs in true Heather Graham style!!
I really liked this book. It had a good story to it.
The turbulent life in the unsettled Florida of 1835 unfolds as Tara, running from a false accusation of murder, hastily marries Jarrett, an acquaintance who wins her in a poker game. He turns out to be a wealthy plantation owner who befriends the Indians. She has trouble coping: war breaks out with the Indians, frightening her terribly. Her busy husband doesn't believe in explanations, and the newlyweds fight frequently, enjoying making up and falling helplessly in love. Their relationship is complex but the characterization is realistic. Tension is relieved through subtle touches of humor, especially with the pranks they play on one another. Her background remains a mystery, even to her husband, until almost the last chapter--an exciting climax that is nicely resolved. The light plot, large amount of dialogue, and abundance of action make this piece of historical fiction an entertaining read.
Florida history is very interesting.
I liked this book. It brought romance and history together for a nice read
