Summers Bluff is the first novel in the continuing story of the Summers family a few years after the end of the American Civil War. After many trials, Emma is eventually driven from her Savannah, Georgia plantation by death threats from a ruthless solicitor, Cal Morgan, who means to see her wed to him or see her dead.
Nineteen-year-old Emma Summers, orphaned, homeless, on her own for the first time and fleeing for her life, shows her true character and courage, born of her faith in God, and her hope for a new life and future on the other side of the continent from the evil Morgan.
Her faith sees her through the dark times, and into a life of close friendships, security, and romance in California. But, has she gone far enough away to escape Cal Morgan?
