Wind and water soon begin to wreak havoc and while Cammie is exploring her late grandmother’s house, water is creeping ever higher and closer to the house. Finally told to gather personal belongings by Noah Gautreaux, (trusted plantation manager), Cammie isn’t about to argue. After all, he’s an old flame, and he’s already ignited a spark that could all too easily blaze out of control: if only the Louisiana sun was shining. He though, is more concerned with getting her and two dogs safely to dry land, and what transpires is terrifying, heart-rending and requires heroic deeds by both. But, in a scary moment alone with just the dogs for company, Cammie seeks comfort from a diary found in the house: anything to take her mind off what is happening all around her.
In the aftermath of Katrina, life resumes, but how long will it take to rebuild what is lost or refurbish properties that miraculously survived? With River Oaks still standing, Cammie vows to restore it to its former glory, and with Noah’s help, she does just that. But, if not for a diary penned in the 1800s and all that it reveals, she might never have known about its hidden secrets and of those who survived the American Civil War.Read more ›
Margaret and her new husband Danny have just returned from their honeymoon to their new thirty-five hundred acre Louisiana home. Danny's promise to "Maggie" is to become a wealthy planter and make them rich with the growing of cotton and sugarcane. But then comes the war. Will they be able to survive the war without losing everything they have worked so hard for?
River Oaks Plantation 2005 - On August 29th, Amaryllis Camilla O'Brien eased her red metallic Chevy Camaro down River Road. After driving all night in horrible wind and rain, she couldn't wait to reach the plantation. Her heart thudded against her chest the closer she got. The best summers of her life were the ones she'd spent under shady oaks with her grandmother. And now with the passing of her grandmother the plantation was hers.
When "Cammie" stepped from her car and made it into her home she found more than she could ever expect. She found an old friend from the past, but she also found that she had picked the worse time ever to return to the plantation. Her return came just in time to experience one of the worse hurricanes Louisiana had ever faced - Katrina.
River Oaks Plantations is made up of two stories that become one.Read more ›
Because the story is so complex - following two families in a place that doesn't seem to change much, no matter who lives there - I did find it hard to follow at times, as it jumps between the timelines at key cliffhanger moments, but the other family's story is so engrossing that I sometimes found it confusing to leave the present day and shift back to the past, or vice versa.
There's a strong Christian element throughout the story, which certainly sets it apart from Gone With the Wind, in addition to the juxtaposition of past and present (or at least recent past).
