Dorothy Love’s “Carolina Gold” Southern Essentials $100 Visa Cash Card Giveaway and 1/14 Facebook Party!

By Dorothy Love

The war is over, but her struggle is just beginning.
Charlotte Fraser returns to her late father’s once-flourishing rice plantation on the Waccamaw River, determined to continue growing the special kind of rice known as Carolina Gold. But Fairhaven Plantation is in ruins, the bondsmen are free, and money is scarce.
To make ends meet, Charlotte reluctantly accepts a position as tutor to the young daughters of Nicholas Betancourt, heir to the neighboring Willowood Plantation. Then Nick’s quest to prove his ownership of Willowood sends Charlotte on a dangerous journey that reveals an old family mystery—and threatens all that she holds dear.
Inspired by the life of a 19th century woman rice planter, Carolina Gold continues Dorothy Love’s winning tradition of weaving together mystery, romance, and rich historical detail, bringing to life the story of one young woman’s struggle to restore her ruined world.

MY REVIEW-Have you ever gotten so involved in a book you forget to do anything else? Well, that is how I felt with this new book from Dorothy Love. Carolina Gold delves into the state of South Carolina after the war between the states. You see people trying to get back to their normal lives and jobs. And one of those people is Charlotte Fraser. With both of her parents dead, she has to make a living. And she chooses to do what her father did. Grow Carolina Gold rice. 

Charlotte is quite a spunky lady. She knows what she wants and does everything in her power to get it. Not saying that life always turns out the way we want it to or just because we want something we get it. But Charlotte rolls up her sleeves and works at it. Of course, there also happens to be a dashing widower with two children who asks her for help, in schooling his daughters. Charlotte knows that she isn't a teacher, but her way of teaching sounds good to me:) 

I loved the history in this novel. Dorothy injects a lot of facts into her stories and this one is no different. Learning about the fever that hit Louisiana and the generals in the southern army made it interesting. A great book!! Can't wait to see what Dorothy has for her readers next.
