by Lainie Montgomery
Joy and despair follow the bewitching Rania Cameron throughout her young life, but this is just part of the tapestry of love, deception, and secrets that comprises Oaklawn Legacy.
Scottish aristocrat Andrew McLain arrives in this antebellum South intending only to attend to the transition of his uncleís plantation estate after his death. However, his life becomes irrevocably bound to Raniaís as war, disease, and prejudice threaten the holdings of their neighboring estates.
Despite marrying her true love Jeremy Leighton, Rania finds her heart also belongs to Andrew. In the midst of Civil War and the challenges of the Reconstruction, Rania struggles to maintain the familiesí plantations, overcome prejudice, honor family ties, and remain true to heart, despite its uncertainty. Spanning twenty years, Oaklawn Legacy is a story of ambition, loyalty, passion, revenge, human nature, and destiny in which the characters are defined as much by circumstance and fate as by their own free will.
