Review by Marlene Engel
Author Hayden Winters is staying in Honey Ridge, Tennessee doing research for his next book. The bed and breakfast where he’s staying, is known to help those having problems and for having a magical quality to it.
While there, he meets Carrie the local librarian who is afraid of just about everything … including the thunderstorm that’s currently happening around them. Their paths bring them to finding a young boy, wet, frightened and afraid to go home. They come to find that he’s from an abusive home and lives with an alcoholic father.
Shortly after checking into the B&B Hayden begins to have dreams about a couple who lived around the time of the Civil War; Thad a Union soldier and Josie a Confederate. It’s when the dreams start to mirror his life that he begins to think that the dreams are trying to tell him something.
This is an emotionally charged story that deals with real-life issues and abuse. I enjoyed how the author brought two different eras and seamlessly entwined them into the story. Although this is the second book in the Honey Ridge series, and I didn’t read the first book, I didn’t have any problems following along with the story. I now want to get the first book and see how that one ties into this story. Overall an intriguing book that I would definitely recommend.
