Beauty can rise out of ashes. The long, bloody war is finally over, but the South and the Greensten Plantation are in ruins. Sarah is left alone and must try to rebuild all that was torn down. It is a daunting task, for she is inexperienced in matters of business, and lacks sufficient resources and manpower. As she struggles to keep her head above the raging waters, Sarah begins the final step of piecing together the secrets the war revealed, hoping to at last put together the past that was kept from her all these years. And perhaps, in discovering what was, she will find guidance and strength for what is yet to come. Roses of Red is the final part of the Sarah's Roses Trilogy. The Antabellum South is no more, the Civil War has come to an end, and the Reconstruction Era is about to begin. Unlike the other parts, it doesn't go so well independently. If you are not acquainted with Sarah and her history, it would be best to at least flip through the previous two novels to better understand the events in this story.
