Camellia by Diane Ashley
Natchez belle turned riverboat maiden Camellia Anderson misses her old life of privilege. She misses the balls and she misses the suitors. . .then a chance to attend finishing school in New Orleans catapults her into an exciting world—and a whirlwind courtship with a dashing Confederate soldier.
It’s beautiful, uncomplicated romance until a trip to Memphis brings old friend—and Northern spy—Jonah Thornton back into Camellia’s life. Now she’s torn between two loves, but will she risk everything to save a Union soldier?
If you read book one in the series you'll know Camellia is Lily's younger sister. Set in the Civil War era, Camellia is a southern belle who falls in love with Jonah, a young southern soldier who is actually a yankee spy.
I enjoyed the storyline in this well written novel, the characters are likeable and the troubles these two go through are hard. I'm looking forward to more from this author.
I received an ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
