THE ROAD TO MAGNOLIA GLEN by Pam Hillman, reviewed by Kim

I am gonna start this review by saying Pam Hillman is a great writer! The Road to Magnolia Glen is the second book of the Natchez Trace series, but it can totally be read as a stand-alone. BUT, why would you want to do that? Book one,The Promise of Breeze Hill, is just as good, so start with that one! 

I really enjoyed this story. I liked Connor O’Shea from book one, but Quinn (his brother) is giving him a run for his money in terms of being good, kind, caring, and honorable. I love how he was immediately protective of Kiera and her sisters. And boy did he need to be when a certain bad guy shows up! I won’t say his name-spoilers - but he’s one of the worst I’ve encountered in a long time. And then, there is a secondary “bad” guy who, even though he does some bad things, somehow, Pam makes you feel for him! 

I also really like Kiera too. She was very kind and I like how she adjusted to her new life, even though it was far different then she was expecting. 

“Be still, and know that I am God.” The Road to Magnolia Glen provided that great reminder for me. Sometimes, I do all the talking when I pray, and even when I stop and try to listen, my brain won’t shut off long enough to hear God. This is something I really need to focus on. 

I am loving this series and hope there will be more - soon!  5 stars!!

1792, Natchez Trace, MS
Bitter since his eldest brother abandoned their family in Ireland, Quinn O’Shea travels to Natchez, Mississippi, ready to shuck the weight of his duty and set off on an adventure of his own. It’s time Connor, as head of the family, took responsibility for their younger siblings. While aboard ship, a run-in with three Irish sisters lands Quinn in the role of reluctant savior. Though it may delay his plans, he cannot abandon the Young sisters, especially the tenacious yet kind Kiera.

Upon arriving in the colonies, Kiera Young prepares to meet her intended and begin her new life. But she soon discovers the marriage her brother-in-law arranged was never meant to be, and a far more sinister deal was negotiated for her and her sisters.

Quinn offers to escort his charges safely to Breeze Hill Plantation and his brother’s care, fully intending to seek his freedom elsewhere. But the longer he remains, the greater his feelings toward Kiera grow and the more he comes to realize true freedom might be found in sacrifice.

  1. Thanks for reviewing Pam's books. I'm glad you got a chance to read this series. Did you ever read Stealing Jake? Have a good weekend, everyone!

    1. Not yet! I have it though and I just pulled it out of my bookshelf!

  2. I know what you mean by serial books as they give you a richer story than one book alone. Thanks for the review.
