It was a harsh world in the mid-to-late 1700's, especially for women. All up and down the East coast and beyond, remnants of wars and conflict battled for attention; killing men, women, children, and friends in its bloody wake. With the skill and grace that you would expect from this group of authors, a story emerges. A story filled with determination, bravery and courage; hard work, severe loss, new beginnings. It's the story of our country, with a focus on eight women who were determined to make freedom their home; accepting the risk of losing their hearts in the process.
"The woman had called it, 'the price of love'. " - A Heart So Tender, Debra E. Marvin
I loved the detailed descriptions provided, while dramatic there are plenty of tender moments along with some humorous ones as well. I wept tears of joy and sadness in many places throughout the book. Each author tugging at my heartstrings.
I strongly recommend reading the author notes, some have web pages and/or Pinterest boards with the actual history that sparked their ideas. I learned so much more about this time period by reading this book than I ever did in school. I so very much appreciate the research the authors put into their stories.
