Natchez, MS; 1792

Sailing and soldiering around the world has taken Caleb O’Shea far from his native Ireland, so he never imagined that a promise to see a fellow crewman safely home would practically land him on his brother’s doorstep. After spending years away from his family, Caleb isn’t certain what kind of reception he will receive when he steps foot in Natchez, Mississippi. The one thing he knows for sure is that he won’t stay long.

Since her sister was kidnapped by river pirates six months ago, Alanah Adams has taken special care to avoid drawing attention to herself. Those living in the rough-and-tumble settlement of Cypress Creek might even think she’s addled. But when she stumbles into Caleb and his friends in Natchez, she appears to be the picture-perfect lady.

Caleb only catches glimpses of the mysterious and beautiful Alanah before she disappears. But a chance encounter with her at his brother’s logging camp near Cypress Creek leaves him uncomfortable at the thought of the young woman traversing the dangerous area alone. At a crossroads in his life, Caleb must decide whether he wants to give up the worldly adventures he’s been seeking for one closer to home.

This has been such a wonderful series, in fact it’s one of my favorite series that I’ve read. When Caleb O’Shea promises to see a fellow crewman home, he never expected to see any of his brothers. Caleb has not seen his brothers in such a long time. He had no idea how his older  brother Connor would react to him being there. What kind of reunion can we expect in this third book in the Natchez Trace series?

I was on the edge of my seat as I anticipated the reunion of Caleb with his brothers. Having left his younger brothers with no contact whatsoever, it could have gone either way. And you really need to read this book (and not review spoilers) to find the answer! I enjoyed getting to know Caleb, even though he was difficult at times, his help around the land was certainly useful. The Crossing at Cypress Creek has so many twists and turns, it is difficult to see what’s coming next. Life wasn’t easy for anyone, the work was hard, they faced difficult  situations as well as evil people, and sometimes it was difficult reading the things that happened. But still, I had a hard time putting the book down because I had to know what was around the next turn.

Again, author Pam Hillman writes an amazing story! To see the O’Shea brothers come from the difficult life in their native Ireland land, to where they are now has been an amazing experience! Now I plan to read the series again, all together. I highly recommend A Crossing at Cypress Creek for your reading enjoyment. I also highly recommend the first two books in the series, The Promise of Breeze Hill, and The Road to Magnolia Glen. This is a series you want to read, and a journey that will leave you thinking about it long after you finish the last book.

CBA Bestselling author Pam Hillman writes Historical Christian fiction set in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Born east of the Mississippi and a hundred years too late, Pam still boasts of wrangling calves, milking cows and putting up hay, first as a child, and later with her own personal hero, Iran, on their family farm in Mississippi.

A voracious reader as a child, Pam especially enjoyed stories involving the great Westward expansion, and television shows such as Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and Gunsmoke. The western writer, Louis L’Amour, kept Pam mesmerized with his tales of cowboys and Indians, mountain men and outlaws, prim schoolteachers, hot dry deserts, and boom towns.

Pam’s life in the country and her love of the old west bring authenticity to her work and depth to her characters, something that has been recognized many times in the industry through writer’s awards.

Her work has placed in dozens of writer’s contests, including being a four-time Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist with Claiming Mariah, her second novel, winning the Award for Best Inspirational. Other awards include the Inspirational Readers Choice Award, International Digital Award, and the EPIC eBook Award.

Pam lives in Mississippi with her husband and family.
