One of the most beloved authors in women's fiction
today, Jill Marie Landis touches the heart as she
illuminates every exhilarating page with natural warmth and
tenderness. Now, in her stirring new novel, Landis takes
readers to a place where pride can be as unforgiving as the
past and finding the courage to love again will be nothing
short of a miracle.
On the eve of the Civil War, Sara Collier marries
the dashing Dru Talbot, just before he rides off to join
the Confederate army. But fate cuts short their chance for
happiness when Dru dies tragically on the battlefield. As
a widow, Sara rises above her grief, refusing to mourn her
life away. But one wrong choice made with an open heart
takes her away from her hometown -- and challenges Sara in
ways she never imagined. Though she returns to Magnolia
Creek an outcast, the sorrow in her life makes her stronger.
A year after the war has ended, battle-scarred
surgeon Dru Talbot surprises everyone when he returns home,
clinging to the dream of starting over with his bride. Yet
nothing could have prepared Dru for the truth that awaits
him in Magnolia Creek. Heartbroken, Dru tries to forgive
the shadows of the past. Unable to surrender the only man
she has ever loved, Sara dreams of rekindling the passion
they once shared, turning betrayal into reconciliation.
Written with rare beauty and emotion, Magnolia
Creek is a heartfelt lesson in second chances - and a
moving celebration of life's most precious gifts.
