The perils, joys and adventures include boarding a tug boat mid-river before dawn; an attack by river pirates; and an escape to St. Louis to avoid the yellow fever epidemic only to be brought back to aid a friend accused of murder!
Memphis In Our Hearts is about three families, the Allens who buy into the river trade business; The Suttons, who own the newspaper; and the LeMares who own the only gourmet restaurant in town. On coming home from school in England, Jamai Allen is determined to use her education and not just marry and pour tea because it's expected. She promptly starts looking for work, and finds it! The Sutton's son, Lou, is the handsomest, but most fleetfooted bachelor in town and steals Jamai's heart, but not her rebel soul. Jamai balances her time between handling her job, keeping Lou Sutton at arms length until she can be sure of him, and not scandalizing her parents. Can she tame society and Lou Sutton as well?
