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.
The nuances Ms. Couch has woven into her war torn story give depth, and stir the heart of the reader. Hannah and Joseph are drawn to each other, but fight the attraction, both believing their feelings would be rejected by the other, something this reviewer knows all too well.
Hannah’s desperation to find her brothers overshadows all else for her. And Joseph’s guilt compels him to help in her quest. Every mile is riddled with hardship, the threat of attack a constant frisson. The tension between Hannah and Joseph is tangible as the summer heat.
Ms. Couch builds her story one well-crafted word at a time, pulling the threads of her story taut, the anxiety penetrating, the danger palpable. I felt the nighttime chill and the heat of the summer afternoons.
This reviewer silently begged both Hannah and Joseph to let go of their doubts, and embrace each other, and happiness. I cried in the crushing moments, and wept at the bittersweet sacrifice. And cheered when they found their happy ending.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, but was under no obligation to read the book or to post a review. I offer my review of my own free will. The opinions expressed in my review are my honest thoughts and reaction to this book.

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.
