The third book of the Shenandoah Sisters series finds plantation life after the Civil War still difficult for Katie and Mayme

The third book of the Shenandoah Sisters series finds plantation life after the Civil War still difficult for Katie and Mayme. Time has passed, but Katie is still in danger of losing Rosewood Plantation because of unpaid debts. One may very well have a chuckle or two over the antics of Mayme and Katie. Two other crucial lessons are: (1) The Golden Rule (to treat others as we want them to treat us) and (2) Life is too short to be consumed in hatred, anger, and resentment of anyone, especially our dear family, friends, and other loved ones. I did notice some formatting errors within the text, but in my opinion, they did not take away from the overall heart and depth of the story.

The third book in the Shenandoah Sisters series lived up to my expectations! .

The third book in the Shenandoah Sisters series lived up to my expectations! In this book, the same characters that I loved in the first two books are back, with some of them taking a more important role in the story. The new challenges and dangers the girls face are always interesting. I love how the story evolves. In fact, I feel like this series is just liked one long novel that has been cut into four books. For the first time in the three books, I didn't doubt that things would work out because the message of God taking care of good people is very very clear.

Angels Watching Over Me. A Day to Pick Your Own Cotton. What we'd been doing before you joined us is the same thing colored folks had been doing as slaves for years on the plantations of the South-picking cotton

Angels Watching Over Me. The Color of Your Skin Ain't the Color of Your Heart. Together Is All We Need. A Perilous Proposal, The Soldier's Lady Never Too Late, Miss Katie's Rosewood. What we'd been doing before you joined us is the same thing colored folks had been doing as slaves for years on the plantations of the South-picking cotton. I wasn't a slave no more, thanks to Mr. Lincoln, but we'd still been picking cotton as a way to make money and survive that year after the war between the North and South got done. We'd been picking for weeks and we were still picking.

Book 3 of bestselling Shenandoah Sisters. The third book in the Shenandoah Sisters series lived up to my expectations! In this book, the same characters that I loved in the first two books are back, with some of them taking a more important role in the story.

Katie hadn’t forgotten it either. A few days later I found Katie seated at her mama’s desk looking at the letter from the bank. Uncle Templeton’s visit almost made me forget, she said still due. We may have only three. We may have only three weeks left at Rosewood. I sat down on the other side of the room. If we could only find the gold! said Katie in frustration. ‘Do you really think there’s more?. Your uncle said he didn’t think there wa. .I don’t know, Mayme! Maybe I just want to believe there is, because if there isn’t, then the bank will take Rosewood.

At that very moment someone was riding toward Rosewood who would change everything in ways that Katie and me couldn't have imagined in a million years.

The color of your skin ain't the color of your heart. At that very moment someone was riding toward Rosewood who would change everything in ways that Katie and me couldn't have imagined in a million years. Orphaned by the Civil War, Katie, the daughter of a plantation owner, and Mayme, a former slave, have worked hard to keep Katie's plantation going, all the while hiding the fact that they are alone. Now the girls face new threats to their way of life: mounting floodwaters and mounting danger from thieves. When a long-lost relative appears, he disappears as suddenly, taking their closely-guarded secret with him. Now in book three, the girls face new threats to their security. Katie, the daughter of a plantation owner, and Mayme, the daughter of a slave, find themselves with only each other after the Civil War. They devise a scheme to keep Katie's plantation going, disguising the fact they are all alone. A long-lost uncle appears and then disappears as suddenly, taking their secret with them. Then a flood threatens to destroy the remaining cotton crop they need to save the plantation from foreclosure.

WOW!!! Just finished this book last night, and as with the first two in this series, I thoroughly enjoyed it!!! Mr. Phillips continues to keep your interest in his ongoing drama of the lives of Katie, Mayme, Emma, and Aleta.

In this one, a long-held secret is revealed, and Mayme discovers that she has more ill feelings of racial prejudice in her own heart than she realized. She also learns to be more humble and forgiving. Two other crucial lessons are: (1) The Golden Rule (to treat others as we want them to treat us) and (2) Life is too short to be consumed in hatred, anger, and resentment of anyone, especially our dear family, friends, and other loved ones.

I did notice some formatting errors within the text, but in my opinion, they did not take away from the overall heart and depth of the story. I've already started reading the fourth and final book in the series, TOGETHER IS ALL WE NEED. I am enjoying it as much as I have the others and cannot wait to finish it and write my review of it.

Mr. Phillips has won my heart with his wonderful storytelling. He is now one of my favorite authors!!!

This is continuing in the series, but gives enough basic info that you could grasp the story line. I am crazy about this series! I've had to tell others I know about this series. The author opens people's eyes to the reality of life in the south around the War between the States era, but with the beauty of the love between two desperate teen agers. You rarely read anything from the viewpoint of a black woman coping with slavery transferring to freedom and WHY there are so many former slave owners that descend into hatred and bitterness. Like the Amish showing Christ's true love and forgiving the murderer of the school children, two years ago, these books show the evil of prejudice, murder, hatred and these girls overcoming the hate with love. You'll have a better heart of love for all the colors of God's children after reading these books. Blessing to you Michael Phillips!

I have written a review previous on the first 3 books on the Shenandoah Sisters. We surely need to be reminded of past history and what others have suffered while on this planet. This book portrays what greed, selfishness, Pride & Prejudice can do to a nation because of man's innate nature to oppress others and make them of no importance.

Pride is so deceitful and causes all manner of contentions resulting in the destruction of so many innocent lives that was destroyed by that terrible war in our nation. War is cruel and words cannot express the terrible things war can do to a human being and to a nation.

Thank God for A President who was convicted in his heart of this terrible evil and did something about it that made our nation a great nation.. O for a few good men who can rise up in our like Abraham Lincoln.

Absolutely loved this book. I can not say enough good things about it. It kept me on the edge, not in a scary way but it was suspenseful. Very good Christian book. I've already ordered the sequel to it and hope to read the next series by this author.
  • Madis
The many harrowing experiences of Katy and Mayme keep each book interesting and fast paced. It was certainly a shock to all when Mayme discovered who her father was and he was still alive.
The girls are growing up and assuming adult responsibilities as they have no choice. Henry steps in and gives them much support and Jeremiah and Mayme are developing feelings for one another.
Well, I am anxious to get to the last book in the series...what next? Recommend the whole series....It is refreshing to find "clean" reading. Thanks, Mr. Phillips.

The Color of Your Skin Ain't the Color of Your Heart is the last in a series of 4 books. I've read them all and have enjoyed them tremendously. The books are written for young adults but I am 67 years old and enjoyed seeing how this very interesting family came together & helped each other cope with very difficult times after the Civil War. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is interested in life in the post Civil War era in the south.

I have read the entire series and loved every one to the max. Brings us closer to reality of how the whites treated blacks in the south. It also is Christian based and shows how God really does bring us through all situations no matter how difficult as long as we believe and trust in him. I love how Phillips introduces new characters as the story goes along. I loved the Shenandoah series so much that I went on to read the next series of Carolina sisters, all four books. And now I see he has another series called An American Dream series that goes back to the very root of the ancestors and being Quakers in Pennsylvania and how life brings us full circle. It's been my best reading experience ever.

It would really be a great television series. After seeing "Twelve Years A Slave" which takes place approx. 10 years before the beginning of the Shenandoah Sisters. It would be a monumental awareness to our history. I grew up learning about the Civil War between the north and the south, but our history books does not convey the way it really was back in the south at that time. This was a wide awakening.
This was another great book by Michael Phillips. I have read from the start of the series. The characters are realistic and the story is heart warming and interesting. You are taken back to the Civil War era in North Carolina to a plantation where two young girls of different races struggle to rebuild their lives after becoming orphaned by horrific circumstances. The experiences and people that come their way set the scene for this series. I could not put this book and the others down. I highly recommend reading this!!
