Review: I expected to like this book. I did not expect to be hooked! This series is, quite simply, the best historical fiction I have ever read. I’m in love with the characters, I can’t sleep because I’m too busy reading, I have learned more than I ever thought possible, and I’ve been inspired to become a better person. My advice to you? READ THEM!
Storm Clouds Rolling In is the very first book in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It's readers like you who have turned it into a world-wide best-seller. Thank you!
Book Description: Carrie Cromwell comes of age as the dark clouds of the Civil War swallow the country. Born with a fiery spirit and a strong mind, she finds herself struggling between the common wisdom of the South and the truth she has discovered.
The activities of the Underground Railroad and her close friendships with the Cromwell Plantation slaves create difficult choices. But when her decisions put her at odds with her heritage, and challenge her dreams, will she be able to give up all that is precious to her?
This first book of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You'll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free & slave, Southern & Northern - and you'll fall in love with every character. How many books will be in the Bregdan Chronicles? You'll have to ask God about that... I intend to write these character's stories, one year at a time, for as long as I'm able to write. I'm passionate about bringing history to life through historical fiction. Since I'm amazingly healthy, that could be for a very long time! I don't like stories to end any more than you do. This one won't end for a very long time!
Review: What a wonderful role model for women of all ages. Ginny Dye's cast of characters are the kind of people you'd like to know personally. Her leading lady, Carrie Cromwell is not your typical 'Southern Belle'; she's a free thinker, ahead of her time in a world of war and madness. Our author is not afraid to use divine, spiritual beliefs to bring common sense and sanity to the backward, inhumane thinking of the times leading up to the Civil War. The fact that these characters, now friends, will be with us for more than one historical fiction book, is something to look foward to. Now into book four, with many more to come, I'll be reading the entire epic for as long as our author can write and I can read !!
Review: Really enjoyed this book. I'm not usually a reader of American historical fiction, but this one was terrific. I couldn't put the book down. I can't wait to read the next one.
