Southern hope / Nora Beason.

Beason, Nora, (author.).


Step back into time in this faith filled novel . . . Hope Montgomery is a rich seventeen year old girl attending a private girl's boarding school in upper Pennsylvania in 1861. During the summers she lives with her stern grandfather at the Montgomery Mansion. Hope's best friend Jordan answered a mail-order-bride ad in the Harpers Weekly and signed Hope's name to the reply. Little did they know that when they ran away from the boarding school to answer Benjamin Donovan's ad that they were walking into the middle of the civil war. Their safe little existence behind guarded walls of the Weston school would no longer exist. The two young Northern girls had to grow up real fast as they tried to find their way South to Louisiana. The smell of death; and the cold reality of the civil war was soon a part of their lives. The two Yankee girls devoted faith in the Lord is what saved them and kept them strong. Would the Donovan family welcome the mail-order-bride to stay at the largest sugarcane plantation in Louisiana; will they decide to go back to the safe but lonely existence of the Montgomery Mansion; or will a handsome Southern Rebel fight for her love? --back cover
