I loved this book! I was captivated from the first word of the first page. It was delightful reading and an entertaining way to spend an afternoon. Throughout the book MS Jennings subtly inserted how faith in God will carry you through the tough times. In addition there was just enough mystery, intrigue and romance to keep you turning the pages of this fast-paced novel.
If you are a fan of historical romance and the Civil War, this is a must-read!
