A quick paced action adventure of Post Civil War history, Dove’s Migration has a cast of flesh-and-blood characters full of human flaws. Their trials and tribulations place the reader right in the thick of things as they become emotionally attached to each and every one. They felt remarkably like good friends. I was briskly turning pages to reach the dramatic conclusion yet not wanting the story to end. Well crafted with a vividly depicted sense of time and place allows the reader to become a part of the story. Linda Daly has penned an exciting romantic adventure that stands alone. Her storytelling talents shine through on every page.
After the end of the War Between the States, the Honeycutt and the Carmidy families traveled to New York. The battles of the war may be over but the battles of the heart have just begun. Conflicts, deception, lust, and desires surge their way through the families and friends.
Multiple ongoing plots of treachery burble their way through the tale. The chronicles of the lives of the group of acquaintances who had survived through the bitter war were now dealing with survival of another kind. False friendships reign among the characters, each dealing with shallow, backstabbing, self-absorbed, and vengeful deeds among each other.
The author has created several characters that the reader will absolutely love to hate. Ms. Daly leads you into a world laden with friction and tension, a unique and compelling tale that takes the reader on a most unusual ride.
