The Magnolia Duchess by Beth White

Fiona is devastated to learn that the British Navy has captured her brother. Seeking solace along the beach, she is surprised to discover a half-drowned British sailor washed ashore on the beach of Navy Cove, even more shocked when she finds out that it is none other than Charlie Kincaid, an old acquaintance from before the War. Charlie has no memory of his past life but thinks he is politically opposed to most of Fiona’s family. Fiona is unsure of Charlie’s situation and suspects that he may be omitting certain truths. As the War begins to cumulate, Fiona and Charlie must determine if they should remain loyal to their country or become loyal to their hearts.

Beth White once again writes a novel with fantastic historical depth. She manages to research lesser known portions of historical events and intertwine these interesting facts among noteworthy characters. The plot moves a little slower but allows the reader to better understand the history of that time period. There are many characters and many points of view, which can get a little confusing at times. Reading the first two books is this series provides more background on the characters but is not completely necessary to appreciate this book. Overall, the story is enjoyable and I recommend this to lovers of historical fiction.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
