The Last Day of Forever

Book 1 in the Catahoula Chronicles Series –
Cover B1A mysterious old trunk is unlocked to reveal its long-kept secrets: diaries and a manuscript that tell the 160 year-old love story of Rachel and Ethan in antebellum Louisiana.

Orphaned, Rachel is thrust into Ethan’s family, one she doesn’t know, in the care of a man she never met, and taken to Louisiana, far from the Virginia she is familiar with. Bewildered and afraid, she finds comfort in an unexpected new relationship.

In a family caught in the throes of lies, infidelity, death, and eventually the Civil War, Ethan is struggling with changes in his own life, and with his faith. In 1856 he is just beginning his last summer of adolescence at Catahoula Plantation before going off to school at the Virginia Military Institute. Falling in love was not part of his plans—until Rachel came into his life.

Spirited and daring, she is unlike any woman he has ever known. He didn’t expect she would turn his world upside down like she does, nor did he anticipate how strongly his father would react to how they feel about each other, or the extremes to which he will go to keep them apart.

    Praise for my big brother Lane. I just finished reading The Last Day of Forever. Although I am an Exercise Physiologist, my first degree attempt was English Lit and I had aspirations of writing myself, so I read this book with a critical eye and maybe a little jealous eye too. But I have to say I greatly enjoyed the story. I carried the book around with my and read it every chance I got. Ethan and Rachel’s is a passionate story set in a turbulent time in history and the story is adroitly woven into that time. But Lane, you kinda left us hanging there. What happens next? You sly teaser you. Congrats and love Jeanne
