Mayme, a former slave, and Katie, the daughter of a plantation owner, are from entirely different worlds but have been thrown together in the chaotic aftermath of the Civil War. Just teenagers, they are left to survive only by their own wits and shared experiences. Gradually they are learning to appreciate each other’s strengths and to shore up each other’s weaknesses. Out of their efforts to simply stay alive comes a growing awareness of the Lord’s love for them, as well as the dim outlines of a plan to keep Rosewood Plantation operating.

This book continues the story begun in Angels Watching over Me, the story of two very appealing but contrasting characters and their secret mission to provide a sanctuary for others who have been left alone and adrift by a tragic war.

    " A good story, a bit slow. I felt there wasn't enough conflict. Toward the end, the conflict increased. Interesting and informative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Porche | 8/9/2011

    " This is a very sweet, wholesome series about young girls against the odds. I love when they come out on top of things. I am more into the sci-fi genre, however, when I got into this one, it was a bit hard to put down, very written story with a thick plot. Perfect ending! :0) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 7/9/2011

    " OHHHHH MY WORD this book was AMAZING !!! It had sadness, tention, and joy all in one. It was hard to read some of the matereal because of the graphicness but my heart was touched by the journey the two main characters embark on. A++ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/20/2011

    " Easy read...just a couple of hours, but nothing to keep me intrigued. I didn't learn anything new and that's the bottom line for me. "

    " I loved this whole series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Namedoris Powell | 4/22/2010

    " I like this series called the Shenandoah Sisters Series. It is not a hard read, but it holds my interest. It is probably classified as Christian fiction, but it is not syrupy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darcy | 4/9/2010

    " I am enjoying this series more and more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gayle | 10/25/2009

    " I don't think this series is one of Michael Phillips best simply because he has veered away from his normal George MacDonald style of writing and that is one of the aspects of his books that I most love. It is a good story, however. "

    " This book is a great book! It shows a really good veiw of slavery from both whites and blacks. It is very descriptive and entertaining througout the entire book. There are some parts that are weird, but over all it's very good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 7/16/2008

    " writing is ok. I had to skim a few parts (to cheeeeezy). The story is touching though. Worth while if you have extra time.
    A Plantation masters daughter and a slave are the sole survivers of a masacre after the civil war. "
