Heir of Hope (Ironwood Plantation Family Saga) (Volume 2)

By Stephenia H McGee


My dear one, You come to me in my dreams and we talk of things that cannot be explained in this life. How we have been brought together is a great mystery, but I wish to someday see you again….

A Mississippi Plantation: A century and a half after the Civil War nearly tore a nation asunder, the battle for freedom still rages in the heart of Ironwood's newest mistress.

Emily Burns grew up an orphan, so she never expected to inherit a southern plantation. When she discovers an old diary hidden in the attic, her life becomes strangely entwined with her Civil War ancestor and she soon begins to wonder how a woman long dead can keep showing up in her dreams.

Torn between her strange desire to honor Lydia's wishes and practicality, Emily cannot decide if she will keep Ironwood. Yet the house calls to her like a melancholy siren, and Emily cannot resist its tune. Resolving to stay only for a little while, and telling herself her decision has nothing at all to do with the handsome handyman helping with restorations, Emily begins to unravel the history of Ironwood – A tale of love and loss, hope and redemption. When the story seeps into her heart, Emily finds that two women separated by centuries can share the unique bonds of family ties, and that both her past and her future reside in the soul of Ironwood.

*Heir of Hope is book two in the Ironwood Plantation Family Saga, but it and The Whistle Walk can be read in either order.

Book Takeaway:

Forgiveness is the sword that slays the dragon of fear and shame that eats away at our hearts. By learning to forgive the unforgivable and open ourselves to God's unfailing love, we find in Him the hope and peace we craved all along.

Why the author wrote this book:

It is a story that shows the power of family, healing, love and forgiveness, and I wanted readers to find themselves in Emily's struggle reconcile the pain in her life with the power of God's grace.
