Bitter since his eldest brother abandoned their family in Ireland, Quinn O'Shea travels to Natchez, Mississippi, ready to shuck the weight of his duty and set off on an adventure of his own. It's time Connor, as head of the family, took responsibility for their younger siblings. While aboard ship, a run-in with three half-Irish sisters lands Quinn in the role of reluctant savior. Though it may delay his plans, he can not abandon the Young sisters, especially the tenacious yet kind Kiera.
Upon arriving in the colonies, Kiera Young prepares to meet her intended and begin her new life. But she soon discovers it's not a marriage of convenience her brother-in-law arranged, but a far more sinister deal was negotiated for her and her sisters.
Quinn offers to escort his charges safely to Breeze Hill Plantation and his brother's care, fully intending to seek his freedom elsewhere. But the longer he remains, the greater his feelings toward Kiera grow and the more he comes to realize true freedom might be found in sacrifice.
The Road to Magnolia Glen is the second book in Pam Hillman's "A Natchez Trace" series. The first book centers on Connor O'Shea. In this book, the reader is introduced to Connor's brother Quinn. Quinn head to America just as Connor had in the first book. During the journey, he meets an Irish lass, Kiera Young. Sparks fly during their journey making me quickly turn the pages to see what was in store for this couple.
This is a wonderful historical novel with romance and mystery mixed in along the way. It grabs you from the beginning and pulls you along at a quick pace making you want to continue turning the pages faster and faster until you reach the 'sigh-worthy' ending.
Highly recommended! 5 Stars!!!!!
