For years, rumors about the Hart family shocked the core of Orange County, a quiet rural town in central Florida. In early 1990, when handsome Tee Hart went missing, the locals immediately assumed his wife, Irene Hart, had something to with it. But Irene had nothing to say as her past caught up with her. Irene was hauled off to jail. A trial prevailed, a verdict of guilty, and the unthinkable happens.
The story of PLANTATION HILL, a citrus farm in the deep South, tours the homestead from 1950 through 1991 is about a unique family, relationships, and faith. A father desperately trying to save his daughter’s inheritance at all costs is like a game of checkers. An awakening in how decisions, desires, and expectations can alter a family’s destiny. Asks yourself the big question: Is your legacy in safe hands?
“The story of Plantation Hill offers a hefty dose of reality. There’s also a final, damning piece of evidence in the courtroom scene that feels very much like a deus ex machina. A family saga with a worthwhile premise. Ms. Lynaugh has a distinct knack for worldbuilding and setting scenes.” – KIRKUS Reviews
