Book Description: Carrie Cromwell comes of age as the dark clouds of the Civil War swallow the country. Born with a fiery spirit and a strong mind, she finds herself struggling between the common wisdom of the South and the truth she has discovered.
The activities of the Underground Railroad and her close friendships with the Cromwell Plantation slaves create difficult choices. But when her decisions put her at odds with her heritage, and challenge her dreams, will she be able to give up all that is precious to her?
This first book of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You’ll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free & slave, Southern & Northern – and you’ll fall in love with every character.
How many books will be in the Bregdan Chronicles? No one knows yet… Ginny intends to write these character’s stories, one year at a time, for as long as she is able to write. She is passionate about bringing history to life through historical fiction. Since she is amazingly healthy, that could be for a very long time! She doesn’t like stories to end any more than you do. This one won’t end for a very long time!
Review: I’m an avid Gone With The Wind Fan. The movie and book…was skeptical I have to admit, but I love historical fiction so I thought at least it might be an interesting read…but…to my surprise and delight it has pulled me into the saga I longed for… I have been unable to put it down! Well written…believable characters…a real page turner!
Review: Absolutely could not put any of the books down in this series. I have read many books over the years, and never felt the compassion and talent from any author. If you get a chance to read this series, you won’t be sorry. Every one of the books was written so eloquently you feel like you are in the same room with the characters. She describes each character with such depth and descriptive qualities with your mind’s eye you can actually see them. I only hope there will be another book and I will be waiting to see. Thank you for taking me to a place back in history I would not have been able to experience. Again, thank you for your ability to transform and entertain me with such beautiful artistry…. So talented.
Review: I have just finished reading this, the 7th book in the Bregdan Chronicles and I have one word to describe the whole sage…MAGNIFICENT!! I am a big fan of books from the Civil War Era and this saga is without a doubt the BEST account I have ever read of that period of time. All of the characters are developed so colorfully and realistically that I have become very attached to them. As we all know, it was a time of great upheaval in our country, and these people live this upheaval every day of their lives. It was a dangerous time as well. The horror of the war is not downplayed one bit in these books…I would have been very disappointed if it was. Ginny Dye is a genius! I can only imagine the hours and hours of research she put into these books. Her dedication shows through each one. I cannot WAIT for every book that will follow. Keep writing, Ginny!
