It isn’t until it comes into her very home that Amanda Belle must face impossible choices of love, loss, and loyalty.
It's the spring of 1861 on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Although Amanda never thought she would marry because of her promise she made to her dying mother, her attraction to Captain Kent Littlefield is undeniable.
When Texas secedes from the Union, her brother Daniel marches off to war to fight for the Confederate States and Kent remains with the Union troops.
Her heart is torn between the two men she loves and the two sides of the conflict. When she turns to God for help, Amanda expects direction and support, but hears nothing. Is God listening to her anymore? Where is God in the atrocities of war—and whose side is He on?
Amanda senses her life is at a turning point. But she must trust God to bring her family through the chaos that threatens her home, her family, and the beloved state of Texas . . . with her heart, and her faith, intact.
I love to read a good historical book or romance novel. This book was both! I love that this book hit on hard topics from american history and how sometimes families were torn apart by having to take sides in the war. the main character struggles not only with the Choices made by the people she loves but has an internal struggle of what she feels God wants in her life. All in all this is a great book and I would recommend it to all my readers.
I received a copy of this book through booksneeze.com. My review however is my full and honest opinion of the book.
