But in the end, what resonated the most with me was the depth of her characters and her portrayal of how both post Civil War Northerners and Southerners were far from being healed. The very touching opening scene with General Lee surrendering to General Grant at Appomattox as his soldiers choked on their own mixed emotions; the ghosts of family killed forever present in people’s hearts and minds, and how a feisty northern woman (with the help of her little brother) lead a physically and emotionally wounded southern captain down the path of ultimate trust and happiness all made for a very engaging read. Recommended, indeed!
Something of a history buff, I was mostly drawn to this novel by the blurb that began with the American Civil War. From the first chapter, I was captivated by Ms. Farrelly’s wordsmith skills, as well as the verisimilitude and historical accuracy she brought to the narratives and dialogue about the War, the soldiers and their language. As the story moved into a more traditional western/romance storyline – single woman in danger of losing her ranch to the unscrupulous owner of a larger, neighboring ranch – I worried that I’d become bored with a plot that I instantly remembered from the past. I knew immediately where the story was headed and how it would end.
My misgivings were misplaced and I remained captivated by superb characterization and narrative. I was pleasantly surprised to see that sex in this genre, and even most romance novels, has moved forward from a chaste kiss where everything else was relegated to the furthest, darkest corner of off-stage, to several full-blown scenes of real human passion. These scenes were nowhere near pornographic or offensive, and certainly less graphic than what one can find on the movie screens today; yet, the author didn’t beat around the bush, either.Read more ›
The setting is after the Civil War with all the aftermath of loss, suffering and confusion.
Captain Michael Cantrell is a young man whose experiences as a Confederate officer have aged him before his time. He has lost everything he once held dear, including his family and his home. He has travelled since the end of the war looking for a new beginning and a purpose in life.
Annie and her young brother Robbie are running their small ranch and raising horses alone in a hostile environment, having lost their last remaining family member to an Indian attack. Their most deadly enemy however is a local Colonel who wants their land at whatever cost.
Mike and Annie are brought together when he risks his life to save her and Robbie. He is gravely wounded in the process and they take him home to try to save him.
The story is full of detail and drama. Several events threaten their safety and future. In addition to external dangers, they face their inner nightmares and the memories that imprison them, especially Michael.
The love that develops between Annie and Michael is tender and touching, a healing force that drives away the pain of the past. Robbie is also a great character, helping to fill the huge void in Michael after the loss of his own young brother Gavin on the battlefield.
The secondary characters add interest, from the dark, cruel Skinner, the scheming Colonel and his daughter through to the `Yankee' soldiers at the fort and Mike's old friend the Major and his wife. There is also humour, such as fun at the expense of Michael's southern accent and ways.
The story is about the healing, redeeming power of love after the chaos and pain of war, not simply in the relationship between Annie and Michael, but also in bridging the divide between north and south.
Normally, I enjoy authors such as Sandra Brown and Linda Howard and Ms. Farrelly is right up there with these two!
I strongly recommend Terms of Surrender if you are looking for something that you can read quickly and will leave you very satisfied!
