With red herrings galore and enough love tangles to make the reader's head spin, you'll never be bored while engrossed in this fascinating tale of love and betrayal with a happy ending despite the odds against it!
I received a free early copy of this book so I could give an honest review of it.
It was fascinating to watch Alice's growth from a young orphaned girl over-burdened with responsibility, to a mature young woman of responsibility capable of handling her own romantic suitors as well as solve a long standing homicide and bring families ripped apart by it back to friensdhip.
An insightful story bringing us through the Civil War years and the added burden on a family when the man of that family heads to war. It helps the reader see those war years in personal terms, not battles. Wordsy Woman has done it again! Enjoyable reading.

Abigail, the older sister, is now married to a man called Marshall, who came along after the tornado and leaves her to fight in the war (of Independence), feeling it is something he must do and she tries to stop him with a sudden family bit of news. Alice the younger sister, is now the main part of the story, feeling the pressure after her sister falls apart with Marshall’s departure. She has also had to deal with the death of her parents at a young age and having more responsibility for the care of her young brothers, deal with all the housework, laundry and dealing with planting etc to keep them all alive.
Too much for her young shoulders and she just wants to escape! She has lost the friendship of her only friend soon after the tornado and has had to stop going to school. She tries to escape for short periods and attracts the interest of some young men, lies about her age and finds that maybe this isn’t quite what she expected as an escape route.
Matters come to a head when someone from the past suddenly turns up and Alice has to find out how to guarantee her family will be safe if she wants to escape her stifling life. An interesting story in the realms of The Little House On the Prairie, a story of sisters living in the 1860’s, on the outskirts of a small town. With all the stuff that a small old fashioned town has, gossips, neighbours interfering and small time feuds.
A good story, for the period. The last quarter was the most interesting for me, with all the loose ends from the events of the tornado onwards, coming to an unexpected conclusion. Not too long a story, so can be read in a day quite easily. I received an ARC copy of this book from the author and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above.
