The Civil War has ended, but the struggle to rebuild America is just beginning. Historical fiction is my passion. I so love bringing history to life - the reason I dedicate most of my time to writing historical fiction books! Carried Forward By Hope is the 6th book in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It's readers like you who have turned it into a world-wide best-seller. Thank you! Description: America struggles to rebuild in the aftermath of LincolnÂs assassination. Promises will be broken, and everyone you have grown to love will be asked to pay a high price to make freedom for the slaves more than just a mockery. Robert fights to emerge from the darkness as Carrie risks everything to bring him back to her. Moses is offered the opportunity of a lifetime, while Rose returns to her roots with a dream that will change everything. Matthew is caught up in the worst maritime disaster in American history, while Jeremy discovers the cost of embracing his true heritage. Thomas and Abby are surprised by a future they never dreamed was possible. Volume #6 of The Bregdan Chronicles continues the sweeping historical saga that now encompasses the first year of Reconstruction following the Civil War. ** How many books will be in the Bregdan Chronicles? You'll have to ask God about that... I intend to write these character's stories, one year at a time, for as long as I'm able to write. I'm passionate about bringing history to life through historical fiction. Since I'm amazingly healthy, that could be for a very long time! I don't like stories to end any more than you do. This one won't end for a very long time! Ginny Dye Review: Ginny Dye has completely captured my loyalty to the Bregdan Chronicles. The characters feel like family and friends. Perspectives showing both the Southern loyalists' views and the slaves' views provide a thorough, balanced look at the unbelievably trying times of the Civil War. Most of all, the wisdom of forgiveness woven throughout the series is inspiring and uplifting. Ginny's research and family history have both provided a fertile soil for the Bregdan Chronicles and I can't wait for the next book to add additional understanding of the period following the war. Thank you, Ginny Dye. Review: Ginny Dye is a great historian and story teller. I love her characters in this book. I feel like a part of their family and want them to thrive and achieve their goals of reconstructing their lives and help the freedmen and people of the south that were defeated after the war. I have learned how people must have felt going through the hard times of despair and pain, mentally, as well as physically. This is a story of people, men and women, black and white, northerners and southerners. This was a time when freedmen wanted their rights and women wanted to vote and the haters of course making this virtually impossible. Love, passion, romance, hate, despair, cruelty and happiness will rip through you while reading this wonderfully written book. I suggest you get a copy of the first books in this series. I am looking forward to book #7 (Glimmers of Change)!show more
