Through the Storm

This is a wonderful historic romance. This is the first book I have listened to from this author but I will definitely listen to more. I still find it hard to believe that slavery actually existed at one time. The history was fascinating while intertwined with a steamy romance. I especially liked that all the hot and steamy parts happened in the context of marriage. I enjoy Christian fiction, but often times I wish they would give a few more details. Overall, great book, very entertaining and uplifting. Jennifer
