Dorothy Love
Also Available In

The war is over, but at Fairhaven Plantation, Charlotte's struggle has just begun.

Following her father's death, Charlotte Fraser returns to Fairhaven, her family's rice plantation in the South Carolina Lowcountry. With no one else to rely upon, smart, independent Charlotte is determined to resume cultivating the superior strain of rice called Carolina Gold. But the war has left the plantation in ruins, her father's former bondsmen are free, and workers and equipment are in short supply.

To make ends meet, Charlotte reluctantly agrees to tutor the two young daughters of her widowed neighbor and heir to Willowood Plantation, Nicholas Betancourt. Just as her friendship with Nick deepens, he embarks upon a quest to prove his claim to Willowood and sends Charlotte on a dangerous journey that uncovers a long-held family secret, and threatens everything she holds dear.

Inspired by the life of a 19th-century woman rice farmer, Carolina Gold pays tribute to the hauntingly beautiful Lowcountry and weaves together mystery, romance, and historical detail, bringing to life the story of one young woman's struggle to restore her ruined world.



A native of west Tennessee, Dorothy Love makes her home in the Texas hill country with her husband and their two golden retrievers. An accomplished author, Dorothy made her debut in Christian fiction with the Hickory Ridge novels.

Carolina Gold
3 stars By Jenny Skinner, Sep 03 2014
Civil War in America wrought a heavy cost to both the North and the South. Set in South Carolina Low country, post war, Carolina Gold explores the challenges faced by plantation owners now destitute. Charlotte Fraser has enormous  determination and will power to rebuild her families plantation and replant the famous Carolina Gold rice fields. Unfortunately she needs more than this to succeed. Money is scarce and honest labour even harder to find. Charlotte discovers help in the most surprising of places and struggles desperately to hold onto her legacy, even though her legal ownership of the land is called into question. 
I found the first half of this story interesting, and insightful as to life in the South after the Civil War. However, the story line, for me, became a little repetitive. Living life on the island to avoid the heat of the rice fields seemed incongruent with the aim of the heroine. In the publishing of the book, all letters and diary entries were printed in a small cursive font that was very difficult to read and this took away from the enjoyment of the story. Personally I didn't enjoy this novel as much as I have other books by Dorothy Love.
