Book Review: Among the Fair Magnolias

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

In the most turbulent decade of our nation's history, four Southern women---destinies forged by birth, hearts steeled by war---face near impossible choices on their journeys in life . . . and in love.

To Mend a Dream by Tamera Alexander

Savannah Darby would do almost anything to revisit her family home. So when new owner, Aidan Bedford, a Boston attorney and former Union soldier, seeks to redecorate the house for his fiancée, Savannah jumps at the opportunity. But the clock is ticking. Can she find the box her father supposedly hid there during the war before her assignment is completed? And before she sees yet another battle lost on the home front. This time, one of the heart.

An Outlaw's Heart by Shelley Gray

When Russell Stark returns to Fort Worth, he's determined to begin a new life. But when he arrives at his mother's homestead, he discovers she's very ill, and the woman he loved is still as beautiful and sweet as he remembered. With time running out, Russell must come to terms with both his future and his past.

A Heart So True by Dorothy Love

Abigail knows all too well what is expected of her: to marry her distant cousin Charles and take her place in society. But her heart belongs to another. A terrible incident forces Abby to choose between love and duty.

Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser

Emily has a secret: She's in love with one of the freedmen on her family's plantation. Meanwhile, another man declares his love for her. Emily realizes some things are not as they seem and secrets must be kept in order to keep those she loves safe.

My Opinion

I just love when my favorite authors collaborate for a book! It makes me so excited and I love reading four awesome stories in ONE book! It is so interesting to see their different styles of writing and meet so many amazing characters.

I really LOVED To Mend A Dream by Tamera Alexander the best. It was based on a character we met in another one of her books and I loved seeing how Savannah Darby's life played out! Tamera Alexander writes so perfectly that I get sucked into the book, characters and love story from beginning to end! I did not want this story to end!

The only downfall for me about novellas is that the stories are so short. Sometimes, the love stories seem rushed or unlikely.

But these authors all write amazing stories and I enjoyed each one!
