Heart of a Dove
Abbie Williams

December 5th marks the release date of a very highly anticipated book, Heart of a Dove by consummate romance writer, Abbie Williams. This gripping, sweeping novel paints a haunting picture of post Civil War America and follows a young girl on her journey from loved Southern daughter to seasoned prostitute in a Missouri whorehouse. Meanwhile, four men are travelling northward trying to forget their horrific time spent as Confederate soldiers. Their lives collide at that same whorehouse and nothing will be the same for any of them.

We're truly proud of this novel, and it's getting just fantastic feedback from book reviewers, including Publishers Weekly. Lose yourself in the wonderful characters, history and the romance that Williams has created in this first book in the Dove series.
