By J. Mullally VINE VOICE on March 2, 2012
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was a solid tale of love, romance, and a family struggling amid the Civil War. The novel is interesting, but it has several issues. The first is the long span of time, over 5 years. For the sake of the narrative, the author has to choose particular episodes. She starts with the couple, Amanda and Kent, meeting and falling in love, before he is recalled to serve in the Union Army, while she remains in Texas. Her father, the local preacher, forbids her to correspond with the enemy, Her brother Daniel signs up to do his duty. He had once become friends with Kent. The war leaves him bitter and refusing to give his consent to their ever marrying. His bitterness does not get a full context, such as Sherman's march through the South.
Amanda's own bitterness and loss of faith is also hard to grasp at times, since the family seem more fortunate than most. But as the author herself seems to suggest in her notes, she wanted to depict a character whose faith is tested and shown not to hold up. Just because her father is a preacher does not mean she is a good Christian. She also betrays Kent most grievously in the novel, and commits various other acts which one could only describe as traitrous, or at the very least, extremely dishonest. Her betrayal is never dealt with-I waited for her to tell Kent everything, but it was never even mentioned.
One final complaint of the book is that while of course one is meant to assume that god will provide, any serious obstacles in the course of the novel are actually just brushed aside and resolved in a matter of a page or two. All the build up results in a let down. She does the same with cliffhangers at the end of each chapter too; they just fizzle.

Imagine if you will, being in Texas just on the Gulf. It's the spring of 1861 and Amanda Bell is the oldest of four sisters and a brother she is helping to raise along with her father, Pastor Ezekiel Bell on their southern plantation. Her mother passed away and left Amanda tasked with raising her siblings until they are old enough to fend for themselves.

However with the rivalry between the North and the South, the stirrings of a Civil War is on the horizon and Amanda's only brother Daniel is willing to go to war to defend the South's position on slavery. What he doesn't seem to understand is even though they treat their slaves well, they are still not free. However Pastor Bell provides his blessing over Daniel as he heads off to war along with his childhood friends and Amanda is helpless to stop him.

When Amanda meets Captain Kent Littlefield during a church service, she finds her heart pulled in a way she hadn't expected. Now that the war has begun, Captain Littlefield has been called to duty fighting for the North, which now puts her at odds with the man she loves from the North, going to war with the brother she loves from the South. Will either of them return home from the war? Or will this war keep her love at a crossroads she can never hope to cross battle lines?

In the latest novel by Golden Keyes Parsons, His Steadfast Love, shows the horrors of what men, fathers, sons and families had to endure when our own country went to war against itself. In the end, lines were drawn and even when the war ended some feelings would never be resolved over what men had witnessed during their time of war.

Y'all will love this story!
The setting for this romance brings the history alive and Ms Parsons gives us a wonderful insight into the lifestyle of pre-Civil War Texas, during the war and after the war. The history breathes as our hero and the heroine's brother are in battles and moving around the country during the war. Our heroine experiences many changes to her lifestyle and grows, sometimes tenuously, in her faith and mettle through those changes. The ravages of war and its effects cannot daunt the love our hero, Kent, has for Amanda, even though they are from opposing sides.

I love to read a good historical book or romance novel. This book was both! I love that this book hit on hard topics from american history and how sometimes families were torn apart by having to take sides in the war. the main character struggles not only with the Choices made by the people she loves but has an internal struggle of what she feels God wants in her life. All in all this is a great book and I would recommend it.

Reading His Steadfast Love was almost like stepping inside the movie Gods and Generals...almost. The setting, the characters, the things that they have to go through during the war all came to life through Golden Parsons writing style. Why do I say "almost"? Because I personally think the movie portrayed the reasons and politics behind the war better than this book did.

While the writing was good, I wasn't overly impressed with the book as a whole, sadly. The characters seemed flat--I never really connected with them. And there were several scenes that I felt too awkward/unnatural. (Like when someone is suddenly sick, within an hour the doctor proclaimed the invalid was going to die. Just like that. And in front of the invalid, too! All I could think was "What terrible bedside manners!")

The point that Parson takes--that slavery was THE reason for the war--bugged me. A lot! Several times characters within His Steadfast Love mentioned how the war was fought because of slavery...when it really wasn't. Not all the way, at least. Slavery was only a part of it. This particular annoyance is more than likely something only I would find frustrating. But there it is. But I did like how Parsons showed the gradual change in Amanda's behavior toward her slaves. Very well done!

Parsons detail to historical times was really good, taking the reader back in time and throwing them into such a difficult time period in our country's history. The romance wasn't my favorite, but that may be because I never really was able to connect to either of the main characters. Her writing style was tight and well done, and while I didn't enjoy His Steadfast Love as much as I had hoped, I am sure there are other readers who would enjoy this book.
