I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
The Bracelet by Dorothy Love
Synopsis: “There are no secrets that time does not reveal.”
Savannah, Georgia – 1858
Celia Browning dreams of the day when her childhood sweetheart Sutton Mackay comes home to Savannah after two years in Jamaica managing his family's shipping interests. Sutton has all but proposed, and their marriage will unite two of the city's most prominent families. But just as Sutton returns, a newspaper reporter arrives in town, determined to pry into twin tragedies that took place at the Browning mansion on Madison Square when Celia was a child.
While the journalist pursues his story, someone is trying to frighten Celia. When she receives a series of anonymous notes, and a bracelet imbued with a chilling message, Celia realizes that her family’s past has the power to destroy her future.
As the clouds of war gather over Savannah, and her beloved father’s health worsens, Celia determines to uncover the truth about what really happened all those years ago.
Inspired by actual events in one of Savannah’s most prominent 19th-century families, The Bracelet is the story of a young southern woman whose dreams fracture under the weight of her family’s tragic past.
My review: This was a very enjoyable book. I enjoy books that are set in the 1800s they are one of my favorite eras to read about. The author did a great job with the character development. You can also tell that she did a good job with her research as she was very accurate with the historical details. The story line kept me turning the pages almost faster than I could read them as I found myself wanting to find out what was going to happen next in the story. It was nice how there was a little suspense mixed into the story. If you are looking for a good book with history and suspense all rolled into one than this is the book for you.
