I loved the setting of the story and Dorothy did a wonderful job with creating the scene. Set in the deep south following the war and the devastation that took place in the land, but also in the people's spirits. Indigo Point is home to Philip and a haven to those living there, but it also holds secrets and is holding the past captive for Philip and others. I could picture the home, the walkways, the destruction and the vision that Philip had for rebuilding it.
The other characters added so much to the story and of course my favorites were Celia and Frannie, but Mr. Lockwood became a favorite as well. I loved the roles that they played in India's life.
The book started right out in the midst of the action and I was immediately engrossed in the story as details from the past and present were woven together.
I highly recommend this book for Dorothy Love fans and also those who enjoy historical fiction,
