With the murder of Isabella Bartholomew's brother and a fire on the Breeze Hill Plantation that has incapacitated her father and damaged the cotton plants, Isabella needs help rebuilding.

Publisher's Description

Natchez, MS; 1791
Anxious for his brothers to join him on the rugged frontier along the Mississippi River, Connor O’Shea has no choice but to indenture himself as a carpenter in exchange for their passage from Ireland. But when he’s sold to Isabella Bartholomew of Breeze Hill Plantation, Connor fears he’ll repeat past mistakes and vows not to be tempted by the lovely lady.

The responsibilities of running Breeze Hill have fallen on Isabella’s shoulders after her brother was found dead in the swamps along the Natchez Trace and a suspicious fire devastated their crops, almost destroyed their home, and left her father seriously injured. Even with Connor’s help, Isabella fears she’ll lose her family’s plantation. Despite her growing feelings for the handsome Irish carpenter, she seriously considers accepting her wealthy and influential neighbor’s proposal of marriage.

Soon, though, Connor realizes someone is out to eliminate the Bartholomew family. Can he set aside his own feelings to keep Isabella safe?

Editorial Reviews

In 1791, Connor O’Shea arrives in Natchez, MS, from Ireland as an indentured servant. But his plan to send for his four brothers at the end of his term is thwarted by the untimely death of his master and the purchase of his papers by Isabella Bartholomew, who seeks a carpenter to help rebuild a burned wing of her family’s plantation home, Breeze Hill. Neighbor Nolan James Braxton is courting Isabella, yet his intentions are anything but honest. Although Isabella and Connor develop feelings for each other, she needs to keep the plantation running and seriously considers Nolan’s proposal. It is not long before Connor realizes that someone is trying to take over Breeze Hill and Isabella’s life. VERDICT Though some readers may have concerns about a relationship between characters with such a power imbalance, Hillman’s (Claiming Mariah) series launch set in antebellum Mississippi effectively mixes intrigue and suspense with a healthy dose of romance and historical details.
Hillman (Claiming Mariah) sets this eloquent novel in volatile 18th-century Natchez, Miss. It is 1791, and Connor O’Shea, a highly skilled carpenter, has indentured himself to a local property owner to pay for his four brothers’ passage to America from Ireland. His new employer is Isabella Bartholomew, the only daughter of Breeze Hill plantation owner Master Bartholomew. After a house fire severely damaged the plantation and other disasters befell the family, Isabella is determined to get everything back to peak condition, and she believes Connor is perfect for the job. When they arrive at Breeze Hill, Connor observes a dearth of help to run such a vast property; he wonders if the family’s financial troubles run deeper than Isabella let on and whether she can be trusted to live up to her end of the bargain. The trials and tribulations of keeping the business afloat combine with predictable romantic sparks and the suspicion there might be someone intent on sabotaging the plantation. Hillman breezily weaves together colorful details, romantic tensions, and suspenseful plotting in this fun historical romance.
In the first of her new Natchez Trace series, Hillman carries readers to antebellum Mississippi in an entertaining tale. Greed, murder, and glimpses of the slave trade give it depth, while the subtle Christian themes provide hope.

    Connor O'Shea is a master carpenter who has been working as an indentured servant in North Carolina order to secure passage for his four brothers to come to America from Ireland. After his master there died, he goes west to Natchez. Isabella Bartholomew purchases his papers there to work on rebuilding the house at Breeze Hill. Several months before, their cotton fields burned along with a wing of the house. Her father was terribly burned. Her brother was found dead after riding along the Natchez Trace. As more suspicious things happen, it seems someone is out to destroy Breeze Hill, perhaps in a bid to acquire the land. They, and all travelers, also have to deal with highwaymen along the Natchez Trace. Isabella's sister-in-law is expecting a baby; will the baby be safe from whoever is causing the trouble, especially if it is a boy who will inherit the property? Though Mr. Bartholomew and Isabella figure out fairly quickly they can trust Connor, it is more difficult to determine who else they can trust. Though Connor is very much attracted to Isabella (and she to him), he knows he can never have a relationship with her. There are some twists at the end of this story that make a very satisfactory ending. Readers of historical romance should enjoy this one, as I did.

    I received this book free from the publisher. Opinions shared are mine.

    Based in Mississippi, The Promise of Breeze Hill highlights the nuances of society in the late 1790s. Though this book comes from a publishing house known for its Christian fiction titles, The Promise of Breeze Hill doesnt come across as an faith-based story. It is more of a clean historical romance, which makes it good for a wider audience. Its a good story for those who enjoy society dramas like Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs. Consider this when you have a few hours to spend on the breezy plantation grounds!

    Following the death of her brother and her fathers subsequent injuries, Isabella Bartholemew is left in control of her family plantation of Breeze Hill on the Natchez Trace. She needs labour. Her father is opposed to slavery. So she hires an indentured Irish carpenter to rebuild the estateConnor OShea.

    I liked Isabella. She was a strong woman who was prepared to do what needed to be done to protect her family and her home. And there were a lot of threats. Natchez in 1791 wasnt a safe place for a woman almost alone. It was surrounded by slave traders, rouges on the road, and several suitors some of whom are not what they appear.

    Thats a lot of trouble to navigate, and Isabella does it well. She was more intelligent and more savvy than many historical romance heroines. I liked that.

    I enjoyed watching Isabella and Connor get to know each other, and watching their relationship progress against the backdrop of the local troubles. Connor OShea is practically perfect. He is a handsome, hardworking man of faith and principles, who once made the mistake of falling for the wrong girl. He says hes determined not to do the same again, but his actions (and feelings) dont match his words or will. This makes for some fun in the romance. (Although there was also plenty of conflict.)

    All in all, The Promise of Breeze Hill was an excellent historical romance. The ending was perhaps a little too neat, but thats a small niggle in an enjoyable novel. Thanks to NetGalley and Tyndale House for providing a free ebook for review.

    I think this was the first book I have ever read by Pam Hillman and I don't think it will be the last. I really enjoyed the book. It's a light read with the main characters being an Irish indentured servant and Isabella, the mistress of the plantation. You know how the story ends now. But thrown into the mix are some highwaymen and a crooked plantation owner who isn't who he says he is. But no more spoilers, just go read the book.

    In Natchez, MS in 1791, we follow the slow break apart of one woman's plantation and how she is able to rebound and be with whom she was meant for. The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman is just plain beautiful. She writes in a way that you feel as part of the lives amongst her pages. I felt al though I were in 1791 Mississippi and I were watching the troubles unfold before my eyes. Great read!!! I received a copy for this review and all opinions are my own.
