All things new
As I've mentioned many times in the past, I really enjoy historical fiction, plus I very much enjoy reading novels by Lynn Austin. As someone who's read a number of her books now, I can honestly say that she has a writing style all her own and a fantastic ability to draw her reader into the story.
Josephine Weatherly is the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, however the war has torn all that apart. With the loss of her father and brother, the remaining family tries to bring themselves together as well as bring back the plantation to its former glory. While the majority of her family is stuck on monetary gain or revenge Josephine recognizes that they all need to change if they want a chance in this new world after the war. Former slaves are trying to rebuild their lives and learn what it means to live in freedom but are facing discrimination and danger from every side.
Loved this book, it was well written, and kept my attention till the very last page. Definitely recommend this book!
