I have read every book in The Bregdan Chronicles Series, and have enjoyed them all. Although Walking Into the Unknown was my least favorite, I still found the book to be inspirational and uplifting. The lengthy descriptions and flashbacks, though, did slow the pace of the book down.
Walking Into The Unknown begins where book nine left off. Carrie Borden is on Cromwell plantation grieving the loss of her husband, Robert. Even though, Carrie knew that Robert died saving someone whom they both loved, her pain still crippled her. To complete her medical degree and get away from the plantation where she had lived with Robert, Carrie decided to travel to New Mexico and help the oppressed Navajo Indians. The Indians had been forced from their land to Basque Redondo, a new Reservation. Ever since the move, though, they have been dying of starvation and disease. So, Carrie gathered up a team of medical students who were willing to travel to New Mexico, across rough and dangerous terrain by wagon, in order to assist the Indians in need.
I loved reading about the Navajo Indians and wished that the book contained even more about them. It’s obvious, though, that the author did a lot of research for this novel. All in all, I enjoyed Walking Into the Unknown and will definitely continue reading The Bregdan Chronicles Series.
~3 out of 5 stars~ Review by Peg Glover
Storm Clouds Rolling In, is the first book in the Bregdan Chronicles, a fascinating and well-written historical fiction series.
The book takes place in Virginia, during the 1800’s. Ginny Dye does a fabulous job presenting both the northern and the southern points of view on slavery, prejudice, and political opinions. This book gave me a deeper understanding, into the hearts and minds of the southern plantation owners, slaves, and the country folk of that time than what I had. I’m not going to include any spoilers, but what I will tell you, is that as soon as I finished Storm Clouds Rolling In, I immediately started reading books two through nine. I loved every single one of them. I anxiously await now for book ten, to be released.
This book is more than just a story about slavery and the horrid atrocities that happened during the Civil War. It’s a book about life, with all of its sad times and its joyful celebrations. It’s a book about love, betrayal, acceptance, and forgiveness. I found Storm Clouds Rolling In, and every book in this series, to be emotionally charged, compelling and inspirational. The stories moved me to tears, warmed my soul, and left imprints of inspiration on my heart. Will I be reading every new book in this series? You betcha. Ginny Dye is a gem of an author, and is now, one of my favorites. Discover for yourself the many nuggets of wisdom and inspiration in the Bregdan Chronicles. I highly recommend, reading Storm Clouds Rolling In, and every book in the series.
