Favorite Character and Why:
The hero Joseph really captured my attention. I loved watching the internal struggles develop, grow, and then change him into a better man. He struggled to be the father his children needed, the husband he was supposed to be to a wife he initially didn’t want, and to be the faithful man God called him to be.
What I liked:
Although this story was a marriage of convenience story, it felt different than most I have read. It held a depth I love to see as characters struggle to grow and love each other. I also love/hate how good Angela Couch is at putting her characters through one struggle after another. Just when you think they are going to get a break, more happens.
Who would like this:
Those who love wartime stories where loyalties are tested, love struggles and then blooms under adversity, and the struggles are the characters are relatable and applicable to contemporary times.

Joseph Garnet is a widower with two small children. He is visiting his wife's grave when he and his brother-in-law are called to a neighboring farm that is under attack from the Otetiani's raiders. They ride out to help save the neighbors but the husband is already dead along with their livestock. They do save his wife and children that are trapped in a burning cabin. Some of the men take the family to a nearby fort. Joseph see a young Indian boy try to steal his horse. He manages to stop the boy but is threatened and Andrew shoots the kid. The Indian turns out to be a girl and they take her to his cabin and he locks her up. He soon realizes she was a neighbor. The family had been run off after the husband had joined the British Army. This was a girl that had always intrigued him. What is he to do with her?
Hannah Cunningham is a half breed. When her family was run off their farm; her brothers were forced to join the Patriots Army and Hannah, her mother, and her sisters went to live with cousins in the Indian tribe. Hannah is the only one left and has returned to find her brothers. She is captured by Joseph a man she had once dreamed of. When her cousin can't find her he comes to the homestead in full war paint. Joseph is forced to marry her. He promises to find her brothers.
A long journey to find the boys after being gone for six years. Where do they go to find them? How can Joseph find a way to keep Hannah with him? Will his secret destroy their fragile marriage? How can Hannah compete with his love for his dead wife? God has a plan for this little family; a plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too. Give Him your heart and watch Him work in your life.
Despite the similarity in basic premise, each book in this series has been quite different in substance. For Joseph and Hannah, it’s not the first time their political differences have come between them, but there is even more than that now—and only one of them is aware just how much more. And while they are initially thrown together as a result of Hannah being injured by Joseph, their situation quickly takes a very different turn that only compounds the tension—both the burden of Joseph’s secret and the romantic tension!
I was easily drawn into Hannah and Joseph’s story, eager for Hannah to find both her brothers and the acceptance she so desperately wants and for Joseph to find relief from his burden of loss and guilt. I enjoyed Hannah’s determined independence and Joseph’s bemusement at the “little dark-haired cannonball who had pummeled his life”, and I loved the way they slowly but surely grew together in trust and affection. It was also nice to catch up with characters from the previous books in the series.
An engaging choice for those who enjoy historical romance.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
