Blackwater Saga V: The Fortune..

Blackwater V: The Fortune - Michael McDowell

The Fortune is the fifth volume in McDowell's Blackwater Saga and it continues the story of the Caskey clan...


With Miriam and Billy handling the Mill and the Caskey's finances, they all have amassed a substantial fortune. The Caskey's are now the leading landholders and millionaires in Perdido and the surrounding areas.


On the personal side of the things, Frances, Sister & Malcolm are the hot topics of discussion. Francis and Elinor have always been 'different' but up until now, the story only really alluded to their connections to the Perdido river. This volume though really shows you just how different they are. I can tell we're coming down to the big finale (The Rain) but McDowell is so good at keeping you on your toes, I have no idea how it's all going to play out. I can't wait to find out though! : )
