Tensions are high in this novel, especially between the hero and heroine, but also with the Ku Klux Klan spreading terror. The sizzling chemistry was tastefully written. I always enjoy watching characters fall in love and overcome obstacles. In Christian fiction, I savor how God is intertwined in the story and how the characters grow in their faith. I appreciate how Alexander wove this naturally throughout the story.
Another touching part of this love story is the love and respect that Maggie and Cullen each felt for Maggie’s father. Cullen’s determination to live up to his promises is an endearing trait.
I really enjoyed this novel.
I enjoyed everything about it especially the ongoing horse theme. I loved that everything written about the horses was true. Sometimes the information given is not well researched.
I loved how the characters grew but were not all of the sudden perfect with all their prayers answered. The message hidden in this novel was not syrupy sweet but understated and powerful. Thank you for a well written story of post civil war items.
Olivia is going to live with her "aunt" who was a close friend of her mother's. Olivia's husband has just been murdered for being a crook and traitor to the south. He was hardly a loving, caring husband to Olivia, but she is now paying the price for his actions. She has been rejected by Nashville society and is now on her way to Belle Meade.
When we meet Ridley Cooper, it is before the end of the war. Being from South Carolina, his family expected him to fight for the south, but Ridley's conscience wouldn't allow that. He comes across a man from the Belle Meade plantation that is hiding some of the horses from the Belle Meade Plantation. Ridley allows the man to take the horses, but is captured by Confederate soldiers as he leaves the mountain.
Olivia and Ridley meet when the carriage that Olivia is riding to the plantation is overturned. She is unhurt, but she is trapped in the carriage. Terrified of horses, her scream when one approaches her draws the attention of Ridley and they eventually become friends. Ridley has come to learn how to train horses from the man he met on the mountain. He is sworn to keep his past a secret, because if the General finds out that Ridley fought for the north, both Ridley's and the trainer's life could be in danger.
Olivia and Ridley fall in love, but he is determined to head to the Colorado Territory. He has land waiting for him and he has a set amount of time to improve the land. Olivia is just as determined to stay in Tennessee. The secret that lies between them make the situation impossible. Ridley can't betray the trainer, but he doesn't like holding the secret from Olivia.
I liked this book and hope that there will be more Belle Meade Plantation novels in the future. The characters were well developed, even if the ending was a bit abrupt.
