I loved this book what a great look at the late 1700’s in the now known state of Mississippi, which was under Spanish control at that point, and a lot of lawlessness.
Connor O’Shea is a desperate man; he needs to be reunited with his brothers that are still in Ireland, so he puts himself in indenture to help. He is a master carpenter, and that is exactly what Isabella Bartholomew needs, she has lost so much and needs his help desperately, and thus the connection is made.
The author has woven such

It was interesting to learn a bit more about the South at a time we hardly ever study--after the American Revolution, when it left British hands and became controlled by Spain (but before Napoleon took control and sold it to America). Even then there were contentions over slavery, and it was particularly interesting to learn about the white slavery that the British had perpetrated. Highwaymen and disreputable folk abounded in the relatively recently-settled territory, leaving room for adventure. ...more

"The Promise of Breeze Hill" is the first book of the Natchez Trace series. I have never heard of the Natchez Trace before and that is exactly why I like historical fiction - it always brings up something to look up later. The modern Natchez Trace roughly follows the Old Natchez Trace, which used to be a 500 mile foot path that connected Mississippi to Tennessee.

This book brushes upon the issues of slavery, indentured servanthood, outlaws, and way of life in the deep South. It has a lot of roman

Before moving to Tennessee, I had never heard of the Natchez Trace. Now, I can get to it in about twenty minutes. One day, I’d like to drive the Trace all the way to Natchez, Mississippi. Until then, I’m enjoying the beauty of the seasons along the Tennessee portion of this passage.

In The Promise of Breeze Hill, Pam Hillman brings characters who live along the Mississippi portion of the trace to life. Readers get to experience the danger—both from nature and from man—of traveling along this trai

"The Promise of Breeze Hill" by Pam Hillman is the first book I have received from Tyndale House Publishers to read and write a review. This story was very slow for me. If you like very detailed stories, you would like this, but for me it was so much so, that it lost me part of the time.

The story is set in Natchez, MS in 1791. Connor O'Shea is wanting to bring his younger brothers to America, so he puts himself to be sold as a carpenter in return for passage for his brothers. Isabella Bartholome

This gorgeous cover was enough to make me want to read this book and I am glad I did! I have to say that Tyndale books have some of the best covers I have seen, maybe that is why they are one of my favorite publishers.
Set in the lawless Mississippi set in the late 1700's this book is a literary delight with a rich story line that includes a feisty heroine and a handsome Irish man that start out odds with each other but grow to trust and love each other through the hardships they face. I loved ge

The Promise of Breeze Hill is a wonderful read. I am a huge fan of American historical fiction and I love that this book is set during the 1790s in Mississippi. I admire Connor and his determination to make sure his brothers in Ireland are able to join him. Isabella is not your typical plantation owner's daughter and I love how strong of a woman she is considering the times in history. I love this story, it is among my top favorites of the year and I highly recommend it.

100 stars.

Everything you want in a romantic tale between two unlikely partners. I particularly enjoyed it because of the setting. I could picture Natchez as a growing city in the late 1700s. Enjoyed reading history about one of my favorite places to visit.

CBA Bestselling author PAM HILLMAN was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn't afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove an Allis Chalmers 110. Even when her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn't mind raking. Raking hay doesn't ...more
