Bestselling author Mary Ellis (A Widow's Hope) presents
The Last Heiress, a new romantic standalone that
intertwines the lives of a British manufacturing heiress
and an American merchant caught in the turbulent time of
the War Between the States.
When Amanda Dunn sets sail from England for Wilmington,
North Carolina, she hopes to somehow restore shipments of
raw materials for her family's textile mills, which have
been severely disrupted by the American Civil War. Though
there is not much one individual can do, the wealthy
young woman feels she must try, as her mother and
hundreds of employees at Dunn Textiles are dependent on
When Amanda meets Nathaniel Cooper, her desire to conduct
business and quickly return to England changes. Though
captivated by one another, neither is fully aware of the
other's true nature.
Nathanial, who on the outside appears to be a poor but
hardworking merchant, is actually a secret Yankee
sympathizer who will stop at almost nothing to bring
about freedom for those who live under subjugation, even
when that involves questionable judgment. And Amanda's
wealth is made possible by underpaid workers living in
slums around the mills, not much different than American
Can these two earnest souls find the best in one another
rather than focus on what could tear them apart? And
though they both believe they are on God's path, how will
their decisions affect those around them?

England does sound tempting, however I would love to go to
Poland, because I still have relatives who live there, and
would love to seek them out, and learn a little more about
my ancestry. Your book sounds really good, and I am really
looking forward to reading it. I've already put it on my
TBR list. Congratulations on what I'm sure is going to be a
big hit, if it isn't one already!!

the books I read.
(Kelly Burch 10:51am April 25, 2015)

My dream foreign travel would be to Ireland to study half of my roots. And to see the many shades of green there.
(Debra Wolsleben 8:38pm April 25, 2015)
I also could not see the photos.
I once saw a manor on a hill in Spain and said what a setting
for a novel; I may have that picture somewhere. Book sounds
great with history and romance.

some lovely warm island with lovely warm surf and warm sand sounds just right to me, stuck inside on a cold grey Sunday after what seems like months of snow and cold - I'd find a reason to be on that beach in the sun, some research which absolutely needed to be done 'in the field', without which that book just wouldn't be right!

I've always wanted to go to Scotland or Ireland. Their
countryside is breathtaking and their traditions are
something I've always wanted to learn more about.
Australia and Alaska are also two places that I think
would be an outstanding location for a novel.

My son is going on a study abroad trip next month and one stop is London...I hope he has a wonderful, safe experience! I can no longer travel due to health issues so I will enjoy sharing his pictures when he returns.

I would really love to go to Scotland or Austria. I have
always had a fascination for Scotland when I started
reading Gothic Novels as a teenager. I'd love to visit
Austria since that's where my mother's family is/was.
