Romance On the River | Mary Ellis Marathon


Today I’m reviewing Romance On the River, sort of an introduction novella for the Civil War Heroines series by Mary Ellis.

Here is a brief synopsis:

This short story prequel by bestselling author Mary Ellis provides an early glimpse into the life of Quaker Emily Harrison.

Laced with humor and a sweet love story, this bonus material also contains the first chapter of Emily’s continuing journey in The Quaker and the Rebel, Book 1 of the Civil War Heroines series.

Summer 1861 — Emily Harrison is finding life a bit overwhelming. Alone on her family’s farm, she must take on the roles of both housekeeper and farmer.

She cares for the garden, makes plans for planting the fields, and milks the cows, all the while creating havoc in the home her mother used to keep immaculate. That is in addition to providing a safe house as part of the Underground Railroad.

In the midst of this whirlpool of swirling tasks, she is getting ready to greet very important dinner guests — the love of her life and her pastor and his wife.

Will Matthew finally propose? What news does Reverend Ames bring that turns Emily’s world upside down? How does the new war between the North and South impact her life?

And… will the goose be cooked in time?

This eBook was the perfect introduction to the full story….

I have to say that I have never been a fan of the Civil War era, but after reading this tantalizing intro, I have to read the book (thank goodness the review for it is due tomorrow)!

This short story gives the reader just enough information without spoiling anything about the novel to come. As a matter of fact, it gives us a glimpse into the start of Miss Harrison’s journey that makes “The Quaker and the Rebel” very appealing.
