Today I am happy to be featuring Mountain Laurel by Lori Benton. This poignant story set in North Carolina is sure to wisk you away to a bygone era. With vibrant characters that are sure to charm and hold a place in your heart, you won’t want to miss out on this new release!
At the creek that marked the boundary of his uncle’s plantation, Ian Cameron paused his horse. The creek’s water ran clear, chattering over a pebbled bed, no more than ankle-deep, yet for all his balking to cross it, it might have been the Red Sea.
