Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Inspirational Fiction, 2013
Though their first encounter is hardly auspicious, Laura Marquardt soon discovers herself drawn to the dashing Captain Brandon Reid. As an officer over the colored troops, he eagerly supports her desire to educate blacks and seek harmony in a town where the defeat of the South is a bitter reality. When Laura’s sister marries her Confederate beau, Laura finds herself in a difficult situation after overhearing a discussion with frightening consequences.
In her heart she feels she should confide in Brandon, but Laura fears to do so may endanger her sister’s life. Yet as the stakes continue to rise and Brandon’s motives for pursuing her come into doubt, Laura questions where to turn...and wonders if her own dreams of love may be forsaken.

Captivating

Brilliantly frightening and delightful, this romantic suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat! I took every opportunity I could to listen to this audiobook! The narration was perfect with a Southern draw for the post civil war women of Texas, as well as both Yankee and Rebel accents for the soldiers and sympathizers! Not to mention the wonderful voices of the ex slaves and the Mexican employees! Now on to book 3 in this captivating series!!

Awesome

Very good book. I felt like I was transported back in time. The only thing that I would have liked is the same characters from the first book to carry into the second, instead of other being a whole new book. A continuous story would have been nice.
