Charlotte's lips only took a moment to find those belonging to her beloved. He tasted faintly of molasses and she was immediately drawn into the warmth of his embrace. Their bodies were perfectly pressed together, fitting as though one had been divinely made for the other, as Sanderson's kisses trailed from Charlotte's lips down her neck. Her hands found his softly stubbled face and guided him back to her lips. With his strong arms around her, she'd never felt more safe. Or more vulnerable…

A Heart on Hold by Sara Barnard is a historical romance story set during the Civil War. The story starts off with Sanderson returning to Arkansas after attending West Point and pledging to marry his childhood sweetheart, Charlotte, when the war is over. However, Sanderson returns home nearly dead from pneumonia and they are married after Charlotte nurses him back to health. After returning to his regiment, Sanderson goes missing and is presumed dead, so Charlotte heads north to find him. In true romance fashion, a happy ending comes after many trials and tribulations.
Many of the settings and surrounding descriptions are very detailed and believable. And Sara Barnard made a few of the characters extremely sweet and likable, especially little Cotton who was a little orphan Indian boy. However, the dialogue between the two main characters was just over the top and too saccharine sweet for me, as well as seeming unnatural (most of the dialogue sounded like Scarlett O'Hara from the movie, Gone With the Wind).
Tiffany Williams did an excellent job narrating. She has a smooth voice that is easy to listen to. She really made the characters come to life for me, despite the troublesome dialogue. Well done!
Simply put, I'd recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Gone With the Wind.
