Review and Virtual Book Tour for Corrigans' Pool by Dot Ryan12:03 AM
Join Dot Ryan, author of the civil war historical fiction novel , Corrigans’ Pool (iUniverse), as she virtually tours the blogosphere in January on her first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion!
The South is embroiled in a bitter Civil War by the time Ella Corrigan discovers that Corrigans’ Pool is much more than the exquisitely beautiful pond she had thought it to be all her life. But by the time she learns its dangerous secret she is deeply entangled in a secret of her own … one that has made her a virtual prisoner, hopelessly trapped in a world dreadfully different from her previous existence as mistress of her gentle father’s palatial plantation home along the Savannah River. Stunned by what she sees, she must harden herself to her new surroundings or perish … along with the cowed and scarred Negroes who toil in her husband’s rice swamps and cotton fields. Always in the back of her mind, are memories of the man who loved her and left her, the man she has long blamed for her misery.
About the Author
I was really intrigued by the description of this book and really wanted the chance to read and review it. I had never heard of this author, but I've found this past year that many times the author that you haven't heard of before, turns out to be a hidden gem.
I wasn't disappointed in this book or it's author. I really like reading historical fiction and looked forward to this book. The book was beautifully written, with a story that was nothing short of captivating. Sometimes it's so hard to really convey how moving and powerful a story really was. While it was set during the Civil War, it was about so much more than that. Ryan mixes history with romance and really immerses the reader into the story.
This is definitely a book that lovers of historical fiction romances and romances in general shouldn't miss. Thanks to the author and Pump Up Your Book Promotion for the chance to review this wonderful book!
