About the Book:
Bitter since his eldest brother abandoned their family in Ireland, Quinn O’Shea travels to Natchez, Mississippi, ready to shuck the weight of his duty and set off on an adventure of his own. It’s time Connor, as head of the family, took responsibility for their younger siblings. While aboard ship, a run-in with three Irish sisters lands Quinn in the role of reluctant savior. Though it may delay his plans, he cannot abandon the Young sisters, especially the tenacious yet kind Kiera.
Upon arriving in the colonies, Kiera Young prepares to meet her intended and begin her new life. But she soon discovers the marriage her brother-in-law arranged was never meant to be, and a far more sinister deal was negotiated for her and her sisters.
Quinn offers to escort his charges safely to Breeze Hill Plantation and his brother’s care, fully intending to seek his freedom elsewhere. But the longer he remains, the greater his feelings toward Kiera grow and the more he comes to realize true freedom might be found in sacrifice.
First let me just say that the cover is gorgeous on this novel! Kudos to the design team! The Road to Magnolia Glen takes place during a particularly volatile time period in American history. The story starts out with a bang full of action as Kiera and her sisters find themselves in a terrifying situation upon landing in Natchez. However, unfortunately for me the plot began to drag after that for most of the book until right at the very end. Kiera also seemed to be quite a pessimist and worried incessantly which began to grate after awhile. During the last quarter of the book the action and danger picked up significantly culminating in an exciting finish. Since 3 1/2 stars isn't an option on review sites, I'm rounding up to 4 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
CBA Bestselling author Pam Hillman was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn't afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove an Allis Chalmers 110. Even when her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn't mind raking. Raking hay doesn't take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that's the kind of life every girl should dream of.
