From the Back Cover
William is determined to regain his family's land...
When her father disappears in war-torn Mississippi, Hannah Dandridge finds herself responsible not only for her younger siblings but also for the Texas ranch her father recently acquired. A marriage of convenience could ease her predicament... but is it the true desire of her heart?
Wounded soldier William Barnett returns home only to find out that his family's ranch has been seized. Though angered at this turn of events, he's surprised to discover that it is a beautiful young woman with amazing fortitude who is struggling to keep the place running.
Despite these circumstances, Hannah and William form an uneasy truce... and an undeniable attraction builds between them. In a land where loyalties are divided in a country ravaged by war, is there any hope that the first blush of love can survive? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Being a story written during the Civil War, some parts of this story is so difficult to read. But it’s something we all need to understand, that life has not always been as easy as it is for most of us today. And Tracie Peterson does what she always does so well, writes a story that will capture you from the very beginning and keep you interested until the last page. There’s a lot happening, difficulties and betrayal, many twists and turns. I love the suspense, and enough romance to make you want to see what happens next with this couple. And I thank this author for weaving the storming faith of Hannah during all of the decision she had to make. And that through it all, God was there with her.
This book was given to me by the publisher to read and review and post what I think about the story. This review offers my opinion only. The 5 Star rating is my opinion of how well the story flows, how well written, and just my overall opinion.
When the youngest son, William, returns he finds Hannah and her siblings living on his property, and Hannah’s fathers’ business partner telling him it’s not his home anymore. The man wants him to leave, but Hannah doesn’t want to turn William away, so they come to an uneasy truce while things get sorted out. Months go by with no word from Hannah’s father, and his business partner is pressuring her to marry him. Not knowing if her father is dead or wounded, and not knowing if William can take back the ranch, she wonders if marrying a man she doesn’t love would be the best for her and her siblings. I really got caught up into this novel of hard times, love and betrayal. Hannah is a strong female character whose faith in God sustains her through difficult times. The author shows all sides of a complex time in our history, and she knows how much suspense will keep the reader turning the pages. 5 stars.
But now her father is missing, perhaps even killed, and she’s got to make some decisions on her own. While it would be easy to follow the advice of others, including her father’s law partner who wants to marry her, Hannah is more than ready to stand on her own two feet.
William Barnett was dragged into a war he didn’t believe in. Still recovering from a wound to his leg, he returns to his family’s ranch only to find it overtaken by another family. Texas has seceded from the Union and anyone who wore the blue uniforms wasn’t wanted there. But William plans to stay and fight for what is his. Which may include the spunky Hannah Dandridge living on his ranch.
Nice story that hits some sensitive points about those who fought for what they believed in, and those who didn’t. A complex look at what the Civil War meant, wrapped in a nice romance.
