Change is coming to Rose Hill plantation in Texas in this historical romance from the Civil War era. With Mama gone and Papa determined to find a husband for Adella Rose Ellis, the future looks uncertain. When Papa returns from Galveston, where he’d gone to purchase new slaves, Adella is shocked to discover the handsome stranger with a distinct limp arriving with Papa is not only the son of her father’s longtime friend, but also the new overseer of Rose Hill plantation. Though Seth seems a gentleman, past experience reminds Adella that all overseers are cut from the same, unsavory cloth. That sets the stage for a romance that ends in an elopement.
