Blurb:

As the War of 1812 rages across the newly formed United States, another war rages in Fiona Lanier’s heart–one that threatens to tear her family apart.

Fiona can scarcely take in the news of her brother’s capture and imprisonment by the British Navy. It is almost as unbelievable as the half-drowned British sailor who is washed ashore on the beach of Navy Cove. Charlie Kincaid claims to have no memory of his life before being discovered by Fiona, but in a world that seems saturated with treachery, she cannot be sure he is telling the truth. As Charlie’s memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political allegiances collide, they’ll each have to decide where their true loyalty lies.

Meet the Author:

Beth White‘s day job is teaching music at an inner-city high school in historic Mobile, Alabama. A native Mississippian, she writes historical romance with a Southern drawl and is the author of The Pelican Bride and The Creole Princess. Her novels have won the American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award, the RT Book Club Reviewers’ Choice Award, and the Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award.

My Review:

After reading The Creole Princess I was looking forward to reading The Magnolia Duchess by Beth White. As usual when I dive between the pages of a book, It didn’t take me long to find myself lost in the world of the Lanier family once again. I really enjoyed the historical aspects woven throughout the plot of the story. I also loved reconnecting with characters that came back from the previous books. I loved seeing how their lives were playing out since we had last met. This book I found was a quick read and I found that I now understand American history in regards to the end of the War of 1812 in the Gulf Coast region a lot better. I’d definitely recommend picking up a copy of each of the books in the Gulf Coast Chronicles series.
Disclosure:

I received this book free from the publisher through the Revell bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Happy Reading!
