The Magnolia Duchess

The Magnolia Duchess
(Gulf Coast Chronicles, Book 3)
Beth White
ISBN: 978-0800721992
April 2016/352 pages/$14.99

As the War of 1812 rages across the newly formed United States, another war rages in Fiona Lanier's heart--one that threatens to tear her family apart.

Fiona can scarcely take in the news of her brother's capture and imprisonment by the British Navy. It is almost as unbelievable as the half-drowned British sailor who is washed ashore on the beach of Navy Cove.

Charlie Kincaid claims to have no memory of his life before being discovered by Fiona, but in a world that seems saturated with treachery, she cannot be sure he is telling the truth.

As Charlie's memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political allegiances collide, they'll each have to decide where their true loyalty lies.

Beth White's day job is teaching music at an inner-city high school in historic Mobile, Alabama.

As with the two previous books in this series, The Pelican Bride and The Creole Princess, Beth White brings the Gulf Coast to life in the early days of our nation's history. While many novels set in this time period spotlight the eastern seaboard, Mobile and New Orleans are home to The Magnolia Duchess. Fact and fiction weave together in a magnificent tale of patriotism, love, and loyalty--and the dilemma that arises when those values conflict. White fills this novel with a host of strong characters, both historical and fictional, and includes important strategic events without weighing the story down with unnecessary detail. Each book in this series stands alone and varies by time period, but I strongly suggest reading all three for the richest experience. Beth White remains on my must-read list and I strongly suggest you add her to yours. Grab your copy of The Magnolia Duchess today!
