care about the characters in these amazing books, and Carried Forward by Hope is no exception This one gives me a glimpse of what the Reconstruction immediately following the end of the Civil War may have been like for the freed slaves and the white men and women that want to ensure their continued freedom This was not an easy task to say the least.Carrie and her friends are still in shock over the assassination of Abraham Lincoln She fears that this will not bode well for many of her friends Lincoln would have made sure the freed slaves were helped to find jobs and a life with meaning President Johnson is another matter As an ex slave owner and a man who fought for right to own slave, Johnson is bound to stand with the plantation owner in their desire to keep the black population under their control It soon become clear that their worries are justified.Johnson make it easy for the southern states to rejoin the union with very few changes in leadership allowing these men to bring forth black codes, which severely curtailed the newly freed slaves ability to integrate with white population In essence, they were still under the thumb of all the plantation owners as if slavery still existed The Republican congress was not in session and Johnson ran amuck to say the least until congress would reconvene in January 1866.Carrie fights to bring Robert back from the deep depression he is in while he slowly recovers from his near death experience at the end of the war She travels to Maryland to convince the family that helped him after he was injured at Antietam The family was hiding out to avoid having their children apprenticed They agree to come to Cromwell Plantation and little Amber works her magic Robert begins to get over his desolation and is soon restored to full health.While I enjoyed the fascinating look at the history immediately following the end of the Civil War in Carried Forward by Hope, I struggled with some of the plot points, especially the one with Janie and Clifford There was just too much of a shift in his personality for my tastes Again, other than Clifford and a bit of Robert s character, most of the other characters do not show any flaws For me, that is unrealistic.I do enjoy Amber s character a great deal, and I was glad to see she has returned to the plotline In fact, I like her brother Clint as well and feel they help give this book light among all the darkness I am also glad to have Janie back with Carrie and the others.Nonetheless, I enjoyed Carried Forward by Hope and look forward to reading Glimmers of Change, the next book in this incredible series If you want to see a different side to what happened during this troubled time in American history, I highly recommend reading this series I do want to mention that you need to read this series in order because each book picks up where the last one ended Happy reading I have enjoyed this series, though the last two books less than the first 4 especially having a difficult time with book 6 , and mainly due to what I consider poor proofreading by both author and editor 1 In book 6, Abigail Aunt Abby Livingston suddenly became Abigail Stratton 2 In books 5 6, Thomas Cromwell s Richmond house slave, Micah, all of a sudden became Miles the Cromwell Plantation stable slave who escaped to freedom a few books ago 3 In book 6, Jeremy and

things drive me to distraction If I can keep up with everyone, why can t the author editor A Kindle revision would GREATLY be appreciated, especially for books 5 6 Great SagaI have to confess that after the previous book I took a break and read another author s book but for some reason I just had to come back and see what happened next in this series This saga is glued together with God, strong

had to come back and see what happened next in this series This saga is glued together with God, strong women and men who believed in a better life for both black and white people This extended family both real and adopted truly is carried forward by hope Slaves freedom didn t mean truly free and persecution continued Individuals tried to change what they could throughout the civil war history and after Many people were still closed minded including the president after Lincoln was killed Trying to solidify the North and South was not so easy and radicals continued to cause horrific problems for freed slaves It seemed only the Cromwell plantation was a true refuge for those seeking a better life or healing for those who suffered PTSD after the war Carrie and Robert are still center stage along with her father Thomas who marries Abby an independent businesswoman She is extremely wealthy and seems to belike a fairy godmother to all she comes in contact with I will read book 8, and hope that some closure comes for these wonderful people who helped the black people during this very sad time in history
