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.

Sigh. Among the Fair Magnolias is a delightfully Southern and romantic novella collection and I enjoyed every bit of it. With their distinct and captivating storytelling styles, Tamera Alexander, Shelley Gray, Dorothy Love and Elizabeth Musser all wonderfully detail aspects of life before and after the Civil War in their individual stories. They fascinated me with a wide array of great characters, each with an intriguing backstory and facing interesting circumstances. Their brave heroines willfully faced their challenges - of family obligation, dangerous pasts, racial tensions, well-hidden secrets - while their charming heroes behaved nobly and encouragingly. A splendid summer read, Among the Fair Magnolias will not disappoint readers of inspirational historical romance looking for quick yet heartwarming stories. I would certainly recommend it.
