Review: New Moon Rising (St. Simons Trilogy #2)

User Review  - Annette - Goodreads

I didn't know this was a true story until I finished the book. It's a wonderful, easy to read story about Horace, his family, cotton fields, black slaves and when the war comes. Read full review

Review: New Moon Rising (St. Simons Trilogy #2)

User Review  - Karen - Goodreads

I read it because it is a historical novel based on a family that settled St. Simon Island where I'll be vacationing. This is the 2nd one I have read and will eventually read the last one. They are well researched and engaging. Read full review
