Includes all three books in the Ella Wood trilogy:
As slavery pushes the nation toward civil war, Emily must battle her father in her own bid for freedom. She's prepared to pay any price to escape the plantation and attend a northern university newly opened to women. Meanwhile Thaddeus Black, her handsome and unwanted suitor, simply won't take no for an answer. While her mind is willing to strike out alone, her heart stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love.
"Poetic" and "nuanced," Ella Wood is the story of a young woman standing at the edge of war and struggling with questions of morality, purpose, and love.
Charleston lies in ruins and so, it seems, does Emily's future. She's been banished from Ella Wood over her vocal disapproval of slavery, and her relationship with Thad comes to an impasse when his support of her university career falters. Stepping out alone into a war-torn future will require all the fortitude she can muster. In the midst of such uncertainty, she finds that hope rises from ashes, determination grows with adversity, and love can take root in the most stubborn of hearts.
"Richly textured," "absorbing," and "impeccably researched," Blood Moon was reader-nominated for a Cybils Award.
When the Union navy fires on Charleston, Emily must flee to Ella Wood—and to a father who has never forgiven her for attending the Maryland Institute against his will. There, she grapples with Jack's secret plans for the plantation and his final admonition that she carry them to fruition. But as a woman under the authority of her father, evoking even the slightest change may prove too much to hope for. In the meantime, old jealousies place Emily's life in danger, and her desperate hope for Jovie's return begins to fade. As the war rumbles to its conclusion, she must draw upon every ounce of courage in one final bid for love and freedom.
All three books in the Ella Wood trilogy are clean and wholesome. Don't miss this sweeping Southern romance.!
