"Some of the best writing I've ever seen"
With the war finally over, the Union Army releases prisoner
Confederate soldier Captain Rory Sinclair McGregor. After
two years in a hostile prison with substandard conditions,
Sinclair feels his nightmare is over. He returns to his
hometown Savannah only to realize that his real nightmare
has just begun. Sinclair's fiancee Ivonne Bouchard married
his bitterest enemy Edward Delacroix who also bought the
family mansion WindLass during a back tax sale. His
grandmother feels Sinclair shames the family heritage and
plots his death because he is unable to regain the
mansion. Still scarred from his incarceration, Sinclair
feels deepening depression with no hope for the
present let alone the future.
IN THE WIND'S EYE is an exciting Reconstruction Era romance
that may seem to follow the rules of the sub-genre, but
actually is extremely complex and filled with twists. The
story line is exciting, yet very dark as it brings to life
the aftermath of the Civil War on the losers. Anyone who
takes pleasure from a story about that period will find the
deep layers of Charlotte Boyett-Compro's skills turn her
plot into a triumphant complex historical fiction.
Note: Even though this is not a paranormal, it has some of
the best writing I have ever seen. I predict this author
will make it big time in the near future.
