Set on a plantation, Belle Ombre, in America's deep south just after the civil war, 'What Remains' is a murder mystery and historical fiction novel, with a healthy dose of romance mixed in. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; the characters were well developed and realistic and the book was very obviously well researched, giving the reader the feeling of being transported back in time to the middle of the nineteenth century. I was reminded of'Gone With The Wind' on a few occasions.

Took awhile to get into it but once I hit 50% the book became really interesting. Large family living on a plantation after the Civil War and how they managed day to day life, turned into a who dunnit. Became very exciting and couldn't put it down. Burying and exhuming going on, and mostly about hidden jewelery.The ending is one you won't see coming.
