There's nothing like a good historical romance.. This one takes place when the country is fighting on two sides during the Civil War. Romance can be just as exciting even during war, even if it is for just a few fleeting moments. I love historical rich tales of wars gone by. It shows in this book that the author has done research since the story is so rich in detail. You can almost picture being there in Carrie's place, her husband missing and now her husband's friend showing up to take care of her. Is her husband dead? Will Elijah take over where her husband left off.? The marriage was so fresh and new, just a mere nineteen days. As you read, the author takes the story into your heart and soul. You can't stop reading. As you read you grow to care about Carrie and what she is going through. War is never easy for anyone, the soldiers, the ones left behind, but for a newly wed, it must have been torture to not know where her husband was. The conflicts of life during war are dealt with in different ways by different people. Sometimes the answer is faith and this is brought through in this book, not in a preachy way but it's presented as a possibility. This story will touch your heart with the war, the heartaches, the losses, loves and how it is all dealt with. A very well written Christian Historical Romance that places the reader right there beside the characters and your heart strings will pull tight at times, a tear may drop but let their faith come through.
I received this book from the author and Kregel Blog Tours and voluntarily decided to review it.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
