Where the Last Rose Blooms (Heirloom Secrets, #3) by Ashley Clark


Alice runs a New Orleans flower shop alongside her aunt, but thoughts of her mother, who went missing during Hurricane Katrina, are never far from her mind. After getting off on the wrong foot with a handsome yet irritating man who comes to her shop, Alice soon realizes their worlds overlap--and the answers they both seek can be found in the same place.

In 1861 Charleston, Clara is known to be a rule follower--but the war has changed her. Unbeknownst to her father, who is heavily involved with the Confederacy, she is an abolitionist and is prepared to sacrifice everything for the cause. With assistance from a dashing Union spy, she attempts to help an enslaved woman reunite with her daughter. But things go very wrong when Clara agrees to aid the Northern cause by ferrying secret information about her father's associates.

Faced with the unknown, both women will have to dig deep to let their courage bloom.

My Review


The author gives us a story that actually spans decades, from Civil War time to present, and how they mess together is beautifully done. I could almost smell those beautiful flowers.

Dealing with some very tough subjects, but including some sweet romance, and mental illness, along with prejudice, and we are there to see how the past meets the present.

How I would love to see the beautiful embroidery done by Rose, and how it has survived and is cherished, and then to see the part it played! Yes, we even have spies!

Now this is the third book in this series, but they can be read alone!

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