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.

This time, one of the heart.

A Heart So True by Dorothy Love

Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser

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!

Historical fiction, The Civil War and Romance what more can you ask for? Well Thomas Nelson managed to get these four great authors to come up with a wonderful ninety page story. And each one of these fine authors succeeded. Each story is different and great fun all by itself and each one takes place in The South and has something to do with The Civil War.”Among The Fair Magnolias” is great fun to read.  This is a book where you wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, make yourself comfortable in your favorite chair and have warm cider to drink as you savor each story.  All the stories are so well written and the romance is perfect, tender not overboard or forced. And each one gives you something to think about. I hope Thomas Nelson keeps producing more in this series.
