Carrie Bishop is a young woman whose family lives in a cabin on the mountain. Her father is with General Lee’s army in Virginia. She, her aunt, and her young brother have taken refuge in a cave. Her aunt had refused to leave the mountain; to protect themselves, their livestock, and remaining food from both Confederate and Union forces, they’ve been in hiding for some time.
Searching for firewood, Carrie and her brother find the wounded Union soldier. Her first reaction is to walk away. Her second is to help him. The circumstances that force the two young people together are also the circumstances that may drive them apart – they occupy opposing sides of the Civil War (Carrie’s aunt in particular has a virulent hatred of all things Yankee). What Carrie can medically do for Adam is extremely limited, and she knows that she will have to risk her family’s safety to get him the doctor’s help he needs.
“A Stranger on My Land” is the story of Carrie and Adam, the first of three Civil War romances by Sandra Merville Hart. It’s an engaging story, backed by considerable research and period detail.
The second novel in the series is “A Rebel in My House” and the third is “A Musket in My Hands.” Hart, a member of American Christian Fiction Authors, has also published novellas and short stories and is both a contributor and assistant editor for DevoKids.com.
My initial interest in “A Stranger on My Land” was the Civil War setting. But it took no time for the story to take over and almost compel me to read it straight through in one sitting.
