In the third installment of the Shenandoah Sisters series, the morals are less subtle and so are the plot twists. For the first time in the three books, I didn't doubt that things would work out because the message of God taking care of good people is very very clear. As Kathleen and Mayme pray about big decisions and feel tremendous guilt over the smallest of discourtesies, the reader knows that God will provide for them. The twist at the end of this book isn't one that I predicted right away, b In the third installment of the Shenandoah Sisters series, the morals are less subtle and so are the plot twists.
The twist at the end of this book isn't one that I predicted right away, but it too comes on strong in a saccharine way.

Aug 29, Ogz rated it really liked it. I couldn't drop it for a second! I was at it till I knew what happened to Templeton Davis. So suspense filled! From one situation to another and the real truth! The colour of your skin isn't the colour of your heart. You can see the life of Templeton change. From an irresponsible thief to a responsible father, uncle and carer of the other children. That's what salvation can make of us and God does give us a second chance, sadly many fail at it and not many are able to make it through. I've Wow! I've started on book 4! Mar 10, Kate Shannon rated it it was ok.
A tale of two orphaned teen aged girls keeping a plantation going after the Civil War seemed a bit simplistic and unrealistic. I like the premise stated in the title, which is emphasized throughout the book. The Reconstruction period was brutal, and I'm not sure this could have actually happened. However, it's a book of fiction, so perhaps I shouldn't be expecting history. It has a good moral message and is a easy read.
However, I don't think I'll seek out any of the other books in the series. Mar 22, Linda B. A review of all 4 books in this series.
What a fantastic story. Quite different than any I've read so far. Set in the 's, during one of the most famous raids, children are left alone to fend for themselves. This shows exactly what it was like during these times. Each book just keeps on getting better. A huge thank you to the author for these great books. Nov 06, Darcy rated it really liked it. I have really enjoyed this series the more I read them. I love how the author incorporates his christian beliefs through thought provoking experiences. The books are about the stuggles the characters endure and how their hearts are changed and their outlooks on life are influenced by their circumstances.
I enjoy how the characters moral dilemmas and eventual successes can easily be related to our own lives and current situations. Apr 20, Joan Arning rated it really liked it. The story of a white girl, Kathleen, and a darkie, Mayme, continues. Will they be able to pay off the loan Kathleen's deceased mother took out against the plantation? Is there gold hidden at the plantation? The girls continue to keep hidden the fact that Kathleen's parents have died and they are alone at the plantation. Mayme has to deal with many issues when she discovers who her biological father is.
Sep 13, Kw rated it really liked it. Apparently a couple of reviewers think the rest of us are imbeciles for enjoying these books, but I really don't care. I'm just so glad there's one more to go as I've enjoyed these three so much. So different from most of his other series, though I have nothing but praise for them, as well.
More proofing needed Great story with good writing. I finished a ten book series on the civil war and was interested in another one. This one has been a great series. However, the proofing needs improvement. Some parts were difficult to read because punctuation, dates, ages, etc weren't edited appropriately.
