Dreams of Savannah by Roseanna M. White

 

Cordelia Owens can weave a hopeful dream around anything and is well used to winning the hearts of everyone in Savannah with her whimsy. Even when she receives word that her sweetheart has been lost during a raid on a Yankee vessel, she clings to hope and comes up with many a romantic tale of his eventual homecoming to reassure his mother and sister.

But Phineas Dunn finds nothing redemptive in the first horrors of war. Struggling for months to make it home alive, he returns to Savannah injured and cynical, and all too sure that he is not the hero Cordelia seems determined to make him. Matters of black and white don't seem so simple anymore to Phin, and despite her best efforts, Delia's smiles can't erase all the complications in his life. And when Fort Pulaski falls and the future wavers, they both must decide where the dreams of a new America will take them, and if they will go together.

My Review


 
Once you turn the cover you will be quickly drawn in, and warning, this story just keeps getting better and better!

The time is the beginnings of the Civil War, and we are in the deep South. We are mainly with the Dunn and Owens families, and their in love offspring, Phin and Cordelia, and life that tries to tear them apart!

Warning, you are about to begin a journey that spans Continents, near death, loss and found, and you will be quickly page turning for answers, and hoping for their survival!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
