What I thought about this book:
|It took me five days to finish this wonderful piece of art. I loved Lily and Blake's journey growing closer to God and learning the meaning of forgiveness.|
This is a wonderful book and I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!
Cruise down the Mississippi with Natchez belle Lily Anderson. Needing to provide for herself and her sisters, Lily is desperately trying to make a go of a riverboat venture with co-owner Blake Matthews. But they fail to find anything to agree upon. Blake is enamored of the feisty Lily. Attempts to woo her may be lost to the devious Jean Luc Champney. Will the siren song of the river evolve into a serenade or a somber lament?
