As Clayton nears adulthood, his greatest desire is for a strong and stable family, but his father’s death and his brother’s departure leave him more alone than ever. Seeking for roots, Clayton visits Southbridge en route to college and kneels on his mother’s grave, only to be accosted by a gun-wielding girl named Lucy, whose father will stop at nothing to make the plantation his own. Can Clayton realize his deepest desires of marrying the woman he loves, having a family, and reclaiming the plantation that is his rightful heritage?

A bit lacking
by Erin - reviewed on May 22, 2012
I am a huge fan of Jennie Hansen, but this one left me wanting. I liked the story, but it seemed very choppy. It was a great premise, but it was awkward, and seemed like the characters had no connection. It was also quite short. I think that the story could have used a bit more character development.

I am a HUGE fan of Jennie Hansen! The Heirs of Southbridge did not disappoint. I enjoyed the main characters struggle to follow his heart!
Great Historical Fiction!

The only reason I could not justify a five star rating is because the ending was a little sketchy and it left a feeling we missed a few details. This was a wonderful Historical Fiction that was primarily a Drama with a quite a bit of action and intrigue. It also has bittersweet moments, romance, camaraderie, family loyalty and is great for YA and Book Clubs.
