Spiritual. The one word that settles into the mind upon viewing the land—a land that would remain vast and beautiful but shapeless to the mind’s eye—land to be held with reverence always, as if the inhabitants were overcome by a spiritual essence. This was how the wealthy Rose family felt about their plantation. The year 1859 found Sunday Rose, a child of the South and only daughter of Edward, dreaming about travel and true love. In the wake of a brutal assault, her parents are forced to send her away to live with her wealthy grandparents in New York—a city in transition. It is there that Sunday discovers herself and finds the man who will help her to heal as the Civil War changes her life forever.

Excerpt

“Humming a song to herself, Sunday gathered up her flowers and hurried into the house. It had seemed like a dream when her mother told her that they would be having a young male guest for a few days. It so occupied her mind that thoughts about New York were tucked away—at least for now. That evening she took special care in preparing herself for dinner…. After one last glance in the mirror, she was satisfied that everything about her was perfect. Walking to the door, she cracked it open and listened for a moment. She could hear the men in the drawing room talking and tried to make out their voices. Listening closely, she was able to pick out Ed’s tart, slow voice, Troy’s deep laugh, and her father’s angry answers—when she heard a voice that made her heart pound—”



Professional Reviews

Sunday's Rose
“The year is 1859. Sunday Rose had always wanted to experience a life completely different than life on her family plantation in South Carolina. She was bored with her life and wanted more. Sunday had even begged her parents to let her go to New York. Now, Sunday is about to get her chance. Unfortunately, the circumstances aren’t quite what she had planned, having been sent off to the grandparents after that unfortunate incident with the womanizing Rodney MacBain.
Sunday’s Rose takes an intimate look at the attitudes and expectations of upper class individuals during this period of history. The author also takes a look at how those rules of conduct were often ignored and the consequences covered up, only to surface as rumor and gossip spoken in hushed tones. She also illustrates the difference between old money and new money in the social standings, attitudes, and general conduct. I believe these aspects give the story greater depth, making the story appear more realistic.” Tami Brady, TCM Reviews
