The Civil War - a defining time of great sacrifice, change, and betrayal which determined the fate of the Nation.
It isn’t until it comes into her very home that Amanda Belle must face impossible choices of love, loss, and loyalty.
It's the spring of 1861 on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Although Amanda never thought she would marry because of her promise she made to her dying mother, her attraction to Captain Kent Littlefield is undeniable.
When Texas secedes from the Union, her brother Daniel marches off to war to fight for the Confederate States and Kent remains with the Union troops.
Her heart is torn between the two men she loves and the two sides of the conflict. When she turns to God for help, Amanda expects direction and support, but hears nothing. Is God listening to her anymore? Where is God in the atrocities of war—and whose side is He on?
Amanda senses her life is at a turning point. But she must trust God to bring her family through the chaos that threatens her home, her family, and the beloved state of Texas . . . with her heart, and her faith, intact.
I have to admit, this book took me a few days to get into reading but once I did it was hard to put down. I loved the historical time period this book takes place in and I love how the author immerses you in it. There were several times I felt myself imagining places and scenes from Gone with the Wind though the main character, Amanda, is nothing like Scarlett. If you love a good Christian romance book this one is a good choice.
