Publisher's Summary

Olivia Aberdeen, destitute widow of a murdered carpetbagger, gratefully accepts an invitation from 'Aunt' Elizabeth Harding, mistress of Belle Meade Plantation and the dearest friend of Olivia’s late mother. Expecting to be the Harding's housekeeper, Olivia is disillusioned once again when she learns the real reason why Elizabeth's husband, Confederate General William Giles Harding, agreed to her coming. Caring for an ill Aunt Elizabeth, Olivia is caught off guard by her feelings for Ridley Adam Cooper, a southern-born son who - unbeknownst to her and everyone else - fought for the Union.
Determined to learn "the gift" that Belle Meade's head horse trainer, Bob Green, possesses, Ridley is a man desperate to end the war still raging inside him while harboring secrets that threaten his life. As Ridley seeks to make peace within himself for "betraying" the South he loved, Olivia is determined to never be betrayed again....
Set within the remarkable history of Nashville's historic Belle Meade Plantation comes a story about enslavement and freedom, arrogance and humility, and the power of love to heal even the deepest of wounds.

Wonderful Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is such a wonderful story. It takes place just after the Civil war and touches on the struggles and victories during that time. It kept my interest throughout and was very touching at times. If you like a good wholesome story this is for you. I loved it!!

Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

Tavia Gilbert did an excellent job with all the voices.
