Another review to take place of a post… Really, I will try to get my Top Ten Tuesday post up if possible but I’m kinda a little tried when I am scheduling this and I needed to share this review anyway… So, here it is!
Selah Hopewell seems to be the only woman in the Virginia colony who has no wish to wed. True, there are too many men and far too few women in James Towne. But Selah already has her hands full assisting her father in the family’s shop. And now she is in charge of an incoming ship of tobacco brides who must be looked after as they sort through their many suitors.
Xander Renick is perhaps the most eligible tobacco lord in the settlement. His lands are vast, his crops are prized, and his position as a mediator between the colonists and the powerful Powhatan nation surrounding them makes him indispensable. But Xander is already wedded to his business and still grieves the loss of his wife, daughter of the Powhatan chief.
Can two fiercely independent people find happiness and fulfillment on their own? Or will they discover that what they’ve been missing in life has been right in front of them all along?
Starting off a reading year with a Frantz novel is one that is going to be wonderful.
With her characteristic ability to bring the past to life with a beauty that can’t be missed “Tidewater Bride” took a story that has been told many times in many ways and gave new light to it.
This novel that is based off of a many times told and long wondered about myth is lightly resembling the tale of Pocahontas yet completely new in the way Frantz told the story of Sarah Hopewell and Xander Renick.
The plot twists were done in such a way that “Tidewater Bride” becomes a special historical fiction that will pull you in without warning and leave you wanting more!
