About

"White's smooth flowing narrative . . . will draw readers in to this glowing love story."--Publishers Weekly on A Portrait of Loyalty

Cordelia Owens can weave a hopeful story around anything and has long since won the hearts of Savannah's society with her whimsy. Even when she receives word that her sweetheart has been lost during a raid on a Yankee vessel, she clings to hope and comes up with many a romantic tale of his eventual homecoming to reassure his mother and sister.

But Phineas Dunn finds nothing redemptive in the horrors of war. Struggling for months to make it home alive, he returns to Savannah injured and changed. The beliefs he once held about slavery and the entire war have been upended, and he's all too sure that he is not the hero Delia seems determined to make him.

When the Confederacy deems Savannah a lost cause and the future wavers, Phin and Delia must both decide where the dreams of a new America will take them--and if they will go there together.

"White does a fantastic job exploring characters' thought processes as perspectives begin shifting. The narrative alternates among Delia, Phin, Luther, and Delia's personal slave, Salina, helping encompass a variety of viewpoints on weighty issues like freedom and equality. . . . Her care and detail to the history are strongly felt. An enjoyable, emotionally-driven story of discovering the story in those around us."--Historical Novels Review
