    No one deserves forgiveness - it’s called grace

    Change is coming to 1814 Virginia, some of which may be good, some which certainly is not. Yellow fever has taken the lives of many, leaving orphans in its wake requiring the setting of new goals for some of those left behind. Carter Williams, studying law after being wounded during his service in the navy, now suddenly is called upon to be guardian to his 4 nephews. Cornelia Gill wants to take over as plantation manager, the job her father had before he succumbed to the fever. Will their desires interfere with the choices they must make? Love lost and new love found, slave now free, destitute no more - there are many twists and turns in this narrative that will keep you wondering what will happen next. Is it possible that they all might start to work together to bring Dogwood Plantation back or are they so set in what they believe to be the truth? There is forgiveness to be found, if they only can..... We miss loveliness because we are so intent on our goal that we miss God’s beauty and His creation. - Carter This ebook was published by Hearts Overcoming Press and purchased from Amazon. The comments and impressions are my own and were in no way solicited.

    Captivating historical romance

    Having read several Carrie Fancett Pagels books, I was looking forward to reading this new one. I was not disappointed in this historical romance. Readers get a glimpse of life in the South around the time of the War of 1812. Pagels touches on yellow fever and its impact on plantation life, slavery, and the effect of war on individuals & their lives--the formidable changes that ensue. And yet amidst the difficult and sometimes truly evil schemes of man, the author portrays the beauty of the land with lovely descriptions of the scenes. God's goodness, grace, and forgiveness are intricately woven throughout the story. And as one character reminds readers, "We miss loveliness because we are so intent on our goal that we miss God's beauty and His creation." I enjoyed the tidbits of information the author added to the story regarding the raising and selling of foxhounds. The story moves quickly with lots of romantic tension and twists and turns to the plot leading up to an exciting climax. Readers who enjoy Christian fiction depicting life in Colonial America will not want to miss Dogwood Plantation. I received a complimentary copy of the book and was not required to write a review. The opinions are my own.

    A time of growth and change

    I love this new novel set in Virginia during the War of 1812. The descriptions of sights, sounds and even smells are so vivid, I felt like I was right there with the characters in the homes, on the plantation and in the towns. I was totally immersed in the story from the first paragraphs of the prologue. The characters are interesting and very much individualized. I was particularly gratified to meet Andrew Gill, a secondary character who has some type of learning disability, but also has outstanding strengths. The complexity of the many and varied characters adds depth and richness to the story. There are many spiritual themes woven into the story, such as: struggling with one’s identity after a loss, dealing with new/different responsibilities, forgiving others, forgiving ourselves, dealing with moral issues and more. These all strengthen the universal appeal of Dogwood Plantation. I highly recommend this book to everyone who is searching for that next really good novel.
