The Crossing at Cypress Creek | Book Review


Sailing and soldiering around the world has taken Caleb O’Shea far from his native Ireland, so he never imagined that a promise to see a fellow crewman safely home would practically land him on his brother’s doorstep. After spending years away from his family, Caleb isn’t certain what kind of reception he will receive when he steps foot in Natchez, Mississippi. The one thing he knows for sure is that he won’t stay long.

Since her sister was kidnapped by river pirates six months ago, Alanah Adams has taken special care to avoid drawing attention to herself. Those living in the rough-and-tumble settlement of Cypress Creek might even think she’s addled. But when she stumbles into Caleb and his friends in Natchez, she appears to be the picture-perfect lady.

Caleb only catches glimpses of the mysterious and beautiful Alanah before she disappears. But a chance encounter with her at his brother’s logging camp near Cypress Creek leaves him uncomfortable at the thought of the young woman traversing the dangerous area alone. At a crossroads in his life, Caleb must decide whether he wants to give up the worldly adventures he’s been seeking for one closer to home.

Return to Natchez, Mississippi with the conclusion to Pam Hillman’s Natchez Trace series, The Crossing at Cypress Creek. A historical story full of suspense, romance, and pirates, it is not one to be skipped.

There’s adventure aplenty as world traveler Caleb O’Shea arrives in Natchez to find the brothers he left in Ireland—and cross paths with the intriguing heroine Alanah Adams. As their story unfolds, it proves to be not an easy one to traverse, but it is not without redemption, forgiveness, and love.

I very much enjoyed The Crossing at Cypress Creek. I have not yet read The Road to Magnolia Glen, so I can assure interested readers this book stands well enough on its own (however, I do imagine the enjoyment is slightly greater having read the books in order). Fans of historical fiction, this is a book (and series) I recommend.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
