I received this book free of charge from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed here are my own.

Shannon soon finds purpose to her time in the gold mining town of Grand Coeur by drawing on her nursing skills honed back home in Virginia while tending to many wounded soldiers. But as there is no battlefield here, just a critically ill woman who has recently arrived in Grand Coeur herself, seeking to reconnect with her brother Matt Dubois and with her young son in tow, she is in need of much care and help caring for her son. Shannon immediately has compassion on this woman and a friendship is forged. Not at all impressed by her brother Matt Dubois at first, as his political views did not line up at all with hers, she is not immediately inclined to pay much notice of him, but as time goes on, her interest in Mr. Dubois grows as does his interest in her.Read more ›
To clear his thinking, Rev. Adair occasionally talks to his late wife. A good man, berated for doubting the South would win the Civil War, he admits he's spoiled strong-willed and stubborn Shannon.
Shannon nursed wounded soldiers in Virginia. In Grand Coeur she nurses a young Yankee widow with cancer, Alice Jackson. Shannon cannot imagine friendship with Yankees because Yankee soldiers killed her fiancé, Benjamin.
Alice Jackson's brother, Matthew Dubois, transfers from his job as a Wells Fargo stagecoach driver to support Alice and her son Todd, although he's never stayed in one place more than a few weeks. He's slowly attracted to Shannon.
Joe Burkette, a Southern gentleman, also pursues Shannon. Which man will win and why? And will dangerous actions between Northern and Southern patriots kill romance?
Romance readers enjoy the genre pattern--boy meets girl, one of them doesn't like the other, they gradually change, then something drastic hinders their relationship. Robin Lee Hatcher captures readers with characters and situations true to the genre.
Hatcher includes Christian principles engagingly while bringing alive the setting and times of 1864 Idaho. Readers wonder if Rev. Adair's prayers will be answered. And will Shannon change? The characters decisions challenge readers to grow, also.
