The Gates Of Trevalyan

The Gates Of Trevalyan (Georgia Civil War trilogy, book #2) - Jacquelyn Cook Cook is writing a series of novels based on some of the wonderful Civil War era homes to be found in Georgia. (The first is [Sunrise]). This is a classic Southern romance, no explicit sex, no raging emotions, just a story of a couple deeply in love with each other and their home. The book is also peopled with historical figures. According to the Author's Note, most of their dialog comes from actual correspondence or recorded speeches. This gives the novel a feeling of reality that some novels of this genre lack. Cook's writing flows well, and the novel was quite enjoyable. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes their romance quiet.
