More about Forsaken Dreams:
They Left Everything Behind to Build a New Southern Utopia
Colonel Blake Wallace has seen enough death to last a lifetime. Weary and disillusioned, he slumps beneath the weight of defeat and loss. With his entire family murdered by the North and his name appearing on a list of officers wanted for war crimes, Blake organizes a shipload of southerners who, like him, long to escape the horrors of war and start a new life in a verdant land called Brazil.
Eliza Crawford can barely remember the days of her youth spent in opulence and comfort at her Georgian home. She can’t help but wonder how different her life would be had she not met her late husband, Stanton Watts, a general in the Northern army. Now a war widow, Eliza is rejected by both North and South. Desperate to keep her marriage a secret and escape her past and pain, she longs to start over again in Brazil.
But once the voyage begins, troubles abound. Dangers at sea and enemies from within threaten to keep Blake and Eliza from the new life—and love—they long for.

More about Bread and Wine: Bread & Wine is a collection of essays about how we love, comfort, nourish, and simply enjoy each other’s company around the table. In stories about heartbreaking miscarriages and struggling to get pregnant, juggling family and career, making time for friends and neighbors, dealing with weight and the shame attached to it, and working to balance feasting and fasting, Niequist illustrates how we create friendship and community, and offer presence and gratitude, through food.
