Dogwood Plantation was a story rich with detail. It was clear, from the very beginning, that the main characters, Nell and Carter still loved each other, even years after having been kept apart. However, what wasn’t clear was whether these two would ever be able to have a life together.
Set on a southern plantation, there were plenty of secrets and people who had their own agendas regarding what should happen with Dogwood Plantation. There were also hidden motives and a plantation which was struggling.
There were a lot of characters and situations, both from the past and in the present storyline, to keep track of, and I did find that a bit challenging. But it was also extremely interesting to see how everyone fit together and watch as secrets were revealed and the truth eventually prevailed.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
