About the Book
Cordelia Owens can weave a dream around anything and is well used to winning the hearts of everyone in Savannah with her whimsy. Even when she receives word that her sweetheart has been lost during a raid on a Yankee vessel, she clings to hope and comes up with many a romantic tale of his eventual homecoming to reassure his mother and sister.
But Phineas Dunn finds nothing redemptive in the first horrors of war. Struggling for months to make it home alive, he returns to Savannah injured and cynical, and all too sure that he is not the hero Cordelia seems determined to make him.
As the War Between the States rages ever nearer and Savannah's slaves start sneaking away to the islands off the coast to join the Yankees, both Phin and Cordelia get caught up in questions they never thought they'd have to ask--questions that threaten the very dreams of a future they'd cherished.
About the Author
Roseanna M. White is a bestselling, Christy Award nominated author who has long claimed that words are the air she breathes. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two kids, editing, designing book covers, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of a slew of historical novels that span several continents and thousands of years. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to find their way into her books…to offset her real life, which is blessedly ordinary. You can learn more about her and her stories at www.RoseannaMWhite.com.
In her novel Dreams of Savannah, Roseanna M. White weaves a story of the Civil War. But unlike many Civil War stories, this takes place from the point of view of people that lived in and loved the south. It brings to light that the war wasn’t just about slavery. It was about protecting their land and homes. This charming, but realistic story brings to life the devastating hardships of a dark tie in the history of the United States. But amid the trials and the darkness, there was hope, and a bit of romance between the main characters along the way. This is a beautifully written and stirring story that will keep readers engaged with and interested in the well-researched details, as well as the beloved characters. Although a bit different from some of her other novels, White has written a powerfully moving story that readers will not soon forget.
