This was a beautiful, atmospheric novel set in 1950's Louisiana. I loved the setting and the charming characters. It had the feeling of being even farther back in history because of the one room schoolhouse, and everyone getting around on boats. The author did and excellent job of making you feel like you were really on the bayou.
The romance was sweet and mature, which I appreciated. I enjoy a romance that isn't too drawn out with lots of angst and hand wringing. The character development is well done too. I would recommend this book to lovers of historical romance and atmospheric novels
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley for the purpose of review.
