Alice runs a New Orleans flower shop alongside her aunt, but thoughts of her mother, who went missing during Hurricane Katrina, are never far from her mind. After getting off on the wrong foot with a handsome yet irritating man who comes to her shop, Alice soon realizes their worlds overlap–and the answers they both seek can be found in the same place.
In 1861 Charleston, Clara is known to be a rule follower–but the war has changed her. Unbeknownst to her father, who is heavily involved with the Confederacy, she is an abolitionist and is prepared to sacrifice everything for the cause. With assistance from a dashing Union spy, she attempts to help an enslaved woman reunite with her daughter. But things go very wrong when Clara agrees to aid the Northern cause by ferrying secret information about her father’s associates.
Faced with the unknown, both women will have to dig deep to let their courage bloom.
I have adored this series and this book did not let me down. Ashley Clark was a new author to me when I read the first book and I have thoroughly enjoyed her style ever since.
I loved the connection that is made to each book. I will say I have trouble remembering everything that happened in the previous book so that was frustrating to me, but that was just my own problem and as the current book went on I would start to remember what I had read before.
If you haven’t given Ashley’s books a try I highly recommend you do.
