Book Description

In Civil War–era Florida, a woman suspected of witchcraft reawakens a tired doctor’s heart

Julian McKenzie, a surgeon and makeshift colonel, is at the end of his rope. He’s trapped deep in the South with his Rebel platoon, and their supplies and morale are running low. But while fleeing from an attack, he finds salvation in a most unusual form: a run-down plantation. Inside, widow Rhiannon Tremaine, a Union sympathizer, practices what the locals describe as witchcraft. In reality, Rhiannon is a gifted healer and medic. Still, she does have a bit of magic in her.
 
In the fifth book of her Florida Civil War series, bestselling author Heather Graham evokes a treacherous world of divided loyalties. Rhiannon has the gift of second sight, and while she used to welcome her visions, now her dreams only give her pain.

In Julian, though, she may have found someone to change them . . . if the war doesn’t conspire to rip the two apart.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Confederate Florida, a healer reputed to be a witch fights her own civil war against the man she loves, in the conclusion of Graham's McKenzie Chronicles (Surrender etc.). Widow Rhiannon Tremaine, who harbors Union sympathies, betrays a Confederate platoon encamped at her plantation house and is taken prisoner by Julian McKenzie, the doctor who heads the platoon. Denying their mutual passion, they later separate, until the heroine's extrasensory powers bring them together. Graham knows how to spin an effective love story, but her unnecessary plot summaries of the previous McKenzie tales slow the momentum. Some unresolved threads?and the fact that the war has not ended by the book's end?give hope that the series will continue after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, yeah, THIS IS A GOOD BOOK! December 29, 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the fifth book in a soon-to-be six book series. The entire series is too-good-to-put-down-right-now good. As with the other books Ms. Graham has written, "Glory" is infused with humor and drama. I couldn't help but admire Rhiannon and Julian for their loyalties to their beliefs. Ms. Graham insists in reminding her readers that the Civil War was fought from two sides. She takes great care, particularly in this series, to show the "other" or Rebel side of the war. She also does something I never seen other authors do: she reminds readers that even though Florida did not have battles like Gettysburg, it was deeply embroiled in the war and as torn by it as states such as Virginia. I look forward to reading her next book "Triumph" set to be released in January, which I'm sure will be about the fourth cousin, Brent. You really must read all five books, and in order if possible: Runaway (Jarrett and Tara), Captive (James, Jarrett's brother, and Teela), Rebel (Ian, Jarrett's eldest, and Alaina), Surrender (Jerome, James' eldest son, and Risa) and Glory (Julian, Ian's brother, and Rhiannon).

Glory is yet another of the books I could read two or three times. Heather Graham puts out a terrific performance about the love of the rebel doctor Julian McKenzie and a woman branded a witch becuase of her healing powers and her ability to see. It also starts out the good parts of Sydney & Jesse, and Brent & mary. I like the fact that she uses the battle of Gettysburg as the peak of the book. I live a few minutes from Gettysburg and it was neat to compare the book with the information I could find there. I suggest everyone read the McKenzie saga and the Cameron saga, both are about the Civil War and the Seminole War.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glory by Heather Graham - A disappointment! February 3, 2000
By "slwt"
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Disappointing is a very gracious word! Heather Graham usually pens a more vibrant heroine and hero. Yet for some reason I could not come to terms with Rhiannon. She was 'bland', depicted as etheral, mysterious, yet, nothing about her character exemplified those traits in the novel. She constantly wore mourning black even while married to a very live and viral man. The way Graham describes her, I always seem to picture 'Morticia' of the 'Adams Family', particualy when Angelica Huston portrayed the character 'Morticia' in the movie. It was very difficult for me to 'like' Rhiannon. There were several other heroines of Graham writing 'Shannon Drake' that I didn't particularly enjoy, however, Graham's 'McKenzies' normally married sensuous Rebel or Yankee 'spitfires', and Rhiannon failed to fit into this catergory. The novel itself was a combination of several novels. There were too many stories combined to make up 'Glory'. The story of Jesse and Sydney, which was introduced in 'Surrender', was fiery enough to create a novel of their own tumultuous affair. And Jesse's character changed in 'Glory'. In 'Surrender', Jesse was a 'a typical' hero, strong, possessive, reckless with his own life, but protective of those he cared for. In 'Glory', Jesse seemed 'too young', too soft in my opinion. I kept expecting him to say to someone that he assisted putting Sydney in 'Old Capitol' prison to keep her safe during the war and that is where she should have remained. Yet he claimed he had an undying love for her, but where did it develop? Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars "Glory" is splendid!! September 4, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This time, the doctor and the psychic meet. "Glory" is Julian McKenzie's story. Julian is Ian's brother, Jerome's cousin, James' nephew, and Jarrett's son. Oh hhh, the McKenzie men are fine!!
"Glory" is about Julian and the woman he falls in love with, Rhiannon Tremaine. There story is delightful and romantic. Julian certainly equals the standard of the McKenzies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful read! February 22, 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all previous books to the McKenzie family saga and have been totally captivated by each story. So, it is with great enthusiasm that I found, "GLORY," to be equally, if not, better than Ms. Graham's pervious books to this series. Ms. Graham delivers an extraordinary romance novel with a compelling depiction of the civil war era. It's as though she places her characters, including a beautiful romantic tale, in the middle of a civil war history book. While, "GLORY" was wonderfully written, I do not see how it is a fitting conclusion to this family saga. I felt Ms.Graham's readers are left with too many loose ends for "GLORY" to be a concluding book. I hope to see a continuation to this wonderful family series in which readers will be sated regarding the other McKenzie characters: Bent, Sydney and Tia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad to see this terrific series end. February 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read each book in the MacKenzie series and loved them all. The story of Rhiannon & Julian is unique and beautiful. Rhiannon is wonderfully human and her struggles to overcome the grief over the loss of her husband & her subsequent dependence on opium are sure to touch the heart. I can only imagine the research that must have gone into this novel, as well as the rest of the books in the series, and think Heather Graham has done an amazing job of bringing the Civil War and the feelings of both sides to life. I would love to see another installment about Brent, as suggested by another reviewer.

More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today best selling author, Heather Graham was born somewhere in Europe and kidnapped by gypsies when she was a small child. She went on to join the Romanian circus as a trapeze artist and lion tamer. When the circus came to South Florida, she stayed, discovering that she preferred to be a shark and gator trainer.

Not really.

Heather is the child of Scottish and Irish immigrants who met and married in Chicago, and moved to South Florida, where she has spent her life. (She has, at least, been to the Russian circus in Moscow, where she wished she was one of the incredibly talented and coordinated trapeze artists.) She majored in theater arts at the University of South Florida. After a stint of several years in dinner theater, back-up vocals, and bartending, she stayed home after the birth of her third child and began to write. Her first book was with Dell, and since then, she has written over one hundred and fifty novels and novellas including category, suspense, historical romance, vampire fiction, time travel, occult, horror, and Christmas family fare.

She is pleased to have been published in approximately twenty-five languages, and has had over seventy-five million books in print. She has been honored with awards from Walden Books, B. Dalton, Georgia Romance Writers, Affaire de Coeur, Romantic Times, the Lifetime Achievement Award from RWA and more. Heather has also become the proud recipient of the Silver Bullet from Thriller Writers. Heather has had books selected for the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild, and has been quoted, interviewed, or featured in such publications as The Nation, Redbook, Mystery Book Club, People and USA Today and appeared on many newscasts including Today, Entertainment Tonight and local television.

Heather loves travel and anything that has to do with the water, and is a certified scuba diver. She also loves ballroom dancing. Each year she hosts the Vampire Ball and Dinner theater at the RT convention raising money for the Pediatric Aids Society and in 2006 she hosted the first Writers for New Orleans Workshop to benefit the stricken Gulf region. She is also the founder of "The Slush Pile Players", presenting something that's almost like entertainment for various conferences and benefits. Married since high school graduation and the mother of five, her greatest love in life remains her family, but she also believes her career has been an incredible gift, and she is grateful every day to be doing something that she loves so very much for a living.
