"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.

Captain Sinclair McGregor has spent two years in the frozen hell of a Yankee prison camp. His life as he once knew it has been destroyed by the War. Returning home to Savannah to find his fiancée married to his worst enemy and his ancestral home sold for back taxes to the same man, he knows despair darker than the depths of the Abyss.

His life in shambles, his heart broken, with no money or possessions to his name, he is forced to move in with the grandmother who raised him—a woman who abused him as a child and despises him as a man. If Sinclair cannot take back the family mansion, she would rather see him dead and sets into motion a plan to have her wishes carried out.

But no one counted on the love of four uniquely different women who band together to save Sinclair McGregor's life and soul. Only fate knows if they will be successful or if the ugly hatred of a bitter old woman will condemn him to a final hell.


Note: This book was previously published elsewhere. It is not one of her signature Reaper novels; it a post-Civil War drama.
