Plantation Trilogy Book 1). Bristow does a grand job of storytelling (the New York Times) in this memorable novel of the late eighteenth-century pioneers who settled the Louisiana wilderness, establishing a civilization of charm, luxury, and tragic injustice For his service in the king’s army during the French and Indian War, Judith Sheramy’s father, a Puritan New Englander, is granted a parcel of land. He is a rogue, a killer, and a thief-and the first thing he steals is Judith’s heart. Three thousand acres of untamed jungle, overrun with jaguars, Indians, and pirates, wait for Philip in Louisiana.

The Civil War alters life for a Louisiana plantation mistress and a poor seamstress in this novel by the New York Times–bestselling author of Jubilee Trail.

The Handsome Road book. Handsome Road is the second in Gwen Bristow's Plantation Trilogy, picking up several generations down the line with two very different women in the American Civil War. Ann is the pampered young wife of a Louisiana planter; Corrie May is a dockyard cousin who fights for survival in a society where she is viewed as white trash. The Civil War up-ends most of that, and both girls endure parallel experiences of loss, luxury, poverty, and motherhood.

Though not nearly as good as the first book, in this trilogy, Handsome Road, is still a good read. An interesting take on the civil war, and a good story. If you enjoy historical books, with a ongoing story line, this is a good trilogy to read.
More a story of the difference in class, at that time in history, than a true romance book, it's somewhat bitter tone, is interesting, and sheds some lights on the struggle of the poor white class of people of the era. Worth reading, but maybe not worth the price.

I just recently discovered this author and she is my new favorite. This book is the 2nd in a trilogy and covers the period of the American Civil War. Ms. Bristow is an excellent storyteller and makes the history come alive as well as supplying new detail. Wish there were more books like this!

I read the Plantation Trilogy many years ago when it came out. It was thought provoking then and it is just as powerful now. I gave this copy to a friend.

Gwen Bristow is an amazing author. Her books may be a mite old fashioned, but she still packs an emotional, historical and cultural punch. Really a great read, as are her other novels. Don't miss out.

Love the dust cover.

This book takes the story of the Larne, Sheramy and UpJohn families through the civil war and it's aftermath. The author provides a very realistic portrayal of the upper class Larnes and Sheramys and the poor UpJohns, the latter having to struggle for work as the upper class had the slave labor to do most of the work for "free". Also, the turnaround of the cultures in the aftermath of the civil war, the Larnes and Sheramys having to struggle to survive and keep their plantations while Corrie May was able to catch a coattail of a carpet bagger and his money.

I have to say that "A Reader" in September 2002 summed this book up better than I could. Well worth the time to find this out of print book, I was able to get a copy from my local library. Please note, that the comment by "A Reader" in 1999 who called it smutty must be thinking about another book. This was as chaste as a book could be, and would be a good choice for a younger reader.

When I first read all three "Plantation" books by Gwen Bristow 20 years ago, I was so enthralled with them that I read them twice!! Well 20 years later and I just read all three of them again this past week. Great books that stand the test of time. Each book can be read alone but I recommend them as a series, loved them years ago and still love them!!
The continuation of Bristow's Plantation Trilogy is almost as good as the first. It's so interesting to follow the Upjohns and Sheramys and see how the family changes as the generations flow by. I always love anything set in the Civil War, and I liked how Corrie May was able to see some different truths that most people don't.
