Dreams of Savannah by Roseanna M White

Dreams of Savannah is a story about conversion, commitment and what happens when everything we think is real comes crumbling down around us. Although the entire story takes places during the American Civil War, it reminds us that the real battle for freedom is fought inside human hearts.

Cordelia Owens is the daughter of an influential plantation owner. She spends her days writing stories of adventure and romance, and has promised her heart to Phineas Dunn, the only man she has ever loved. Phineas is sailing with a Confederate crew when he gets shot and washes up on a Cuban beach. He is cared for by a free black man who’s wife has been taken and sold as a slave in Savannah. The two form an unlikely friendship as Phin promises to help the man find his wife.

Although the book had a bit of a slow start, I grew to appreciate its reflective pace as the story went on. Both Phin and Delia are forced to figure out who they are and what is truly worth fighting for. Recommended to fans of historical fiction, and those who already love Roseanna White's books.

⭐️ 7.5/10 ⭐️
