Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the final months of the Civil War, it is Camille Hollander’s responsibility to keep her family alive. Living in a tiny Gulf Coast town, sandwiched between Union-occupied cities, and just miles from Ship Island and its POW camp, Camille and her sisters fish, collect salt, and sew dresses to trade, trying all the while to keep their hopes up for the Confederate Army. On the road to New Orleans, Camille is protected from a gang of soldiers by Major Jake Warren, from Rhode Island, and she soon sees him again when she visits her brother, imprisoned on Ship Island. Jake and Camille are drawn to each other, but Camille soon realizes that although she can see past Jake’s Union uniform, many can’t. She has to decide if she must give up her home for the man she loves. A sad but ultimately hopeful story of love, destiny, and overcoming odds, certain to appeal to fans of romance novels and historical fiction. --Hilary Hatton

About the Author

Fran McNabb grew up along the beaches and islands of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. On the Crest of a Wave takes place on Ship Island, a locale which became an important part of her life. The island fort, which housed Confederate POWs during the Civil War, once was her playground and even a place of refuge during a storm. Now tourists flock to Mississippi to visit this structure. Fran received both her B.S. and her M.E. in English from the University of Southern Mississippi. She taught English and journalism and now enjoys presenting writing workshops. On the Crest of a Wave is Ms. McNabb's third book. A Light in the Dark and Once in a Half Moon are also available.
