I loved reading this book. I must admit that the cover didn't really draw me in, but as I started reading, I got interested very quickly. The authors did a great job pulling the reader into the story and making you feel invested in the characters.

A new historical series has readers traveling by boat down the mighty Mississippi with memorable characters who are trying to provide for themselves and their families. These two talented authors bring to life a long-ago era of riverboat adventures, weaving their own styles into the storyline. They work very well together.

This is my first novel by Diane Ashley and Aaron McCarver and it certainly did not disappoint. With wonderful main characters, and equally charming secondary characters, I was entranced to the very end! I loved the romantic tension between the main characters throughout the story, and the romance between Lily's slave and a crew member on the Hattie Belle stole my heart. A story of love, forgiveness, and salvation, the satisfying conclusion is guaranteed to leave you grabbing the tissue box.

An entertaining book! From front cover to the back cover I enjoyed this story.

The story is rich with the south and the problems facing the people of the day. Lily's story is fun to read and affirming, especially for the women who has to choose to be alone rather than become unequally yoked. As Lilly attempts to make solid choices in her life, the application of passages of the Bible lift up the Christian reader and help to strengthen one’s choices today. I would recommend this for readers who enjoy historical romances with heroines who look to the Lord for their dtrength. This one is definitely appealing to the heart.

Over all this was a fun book to read and I really enjoyed it. The romance was a good story and the suspense fit well into the storyline with out it feeling like it didn’t belong. I am really looking forward to the rest of this series and getting to know Lily’s two sisters and hear their story.
