Coming in July

A novella collection with friends and fellow authors Shelley Gray, Dorothy Love, and Elizabeth Musser. . .

To Mend a Dream by Tamera Alexander
(a Belle Meade Plantation novella)
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 Shepard 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.

Each novella includes a scrumptious Southern recipe that's inherent to each author's story and that will suit your book club meeting to a T!

"Savannah and Aidan’s story touched me deeply, and made me smile because, a century and a half later, people really haven’t changed so much. We still have the same longings, the same fears, the same trials. And as this story so beautifully illustrates, we still have the same God desiring to fulfill our longings, calm our fears, and carry us through every heartache. And sometimes, to bring us the kind of love Savannah and Aidan were blessed to know."
~ Deborah Raney, author of the Chicory Inn Novels and The Face of the Earth
