Wynnette Fraser invites readers to lose themselves in the world of a real Southern Belle with a fearless, independent spirit in her new historical romance, “Belle in Carolina: Times to Remember” (published by WestBow Press).

Spanning from 1916-1919, “Belle in Carolina” begins in Atlanta to tell the story of heroine Belle McLaren. World War I has commenced, and she’s not immune from the effects of war that are detailed just as markedly as the characters. Belle moves on to Columbia, S.C., and then to Peggy Branch, S.C.

During a time when most women view marriage as the ultimate goal, Belle carves out an independent life for herself working as a bookkeeper. She loves Jamie, the poor farmer who’s left her to go serve in the war, but she debates the wisdom of marrying him.

If and when Jamie comes home again, what will Belle’s decision be?

An excerpt from “Belle in Carolina”:

“Belle’s mouth stretched open. Suddenly she knew what she would do about her job offer. ‘Thank you, Father God,’ she prayed, ‘for helping me make up my mind.’”
