Oh, also — there was a lot of God/Christianity stuff in the book coming from the heroine; like she wanted to save the hero's soul. That kind of stuff doesn't appeal to me. But the weirdest part was, it didn't really go anywhere. The hero never seemed to accept Christ as his savior or trust in God's path for him or whatever he was supposed to do in the heroine's eyes. So that element might as well not have been a part of the story at all — and IMO, it would have been a better story without it.
Olivia was a captivating heroine who had to struggle with the results of the Civil War in America. No matter how bad the circumstances, she always tried to maintain her believes and ideals, although she paid in the past dearly for them but she hopes and endeavors for a better future.
Connor on the other hand had to fight his own baggage. He was an active member of the Irish rebellion against the British and saw his entire family die, which led to the complete loss of all his ideals. He lives day by day and tries to cope with his past without any expectations for his future.
The story line was interesting and entertaining. The author managed perfectly to convey the tragic consequences of conflicts and wars for fighters, soldiers and civilians. Both main characters tried to cope with these consequences in a different way and it was interesting to see that finally love won. The book was written in a light and easily understood language. Consequently I would've preferred if Olivia were a bit less god-fearing.
Overall a very enjoyable book - highly recommended.
Conor Branigan is a damaged man. He's had a horrible up to this point. He's 36, something that takes him a moment to figure out. He's a loner and has no one and is running away from his memories. Olivia Maitland stumbles on him lying unconscious in the middle of a wet muddy road and she takes him home to give him aid. Slowly Conor's story comes out and it is heart breaking. But Olivia is up to the challenge of taking him on and their story shows the true meaning of love and time healing all wounds.
I really hope this book is reprinted soon. This book is definitely a keeper.
