I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in order to facilitate this review.
In 1865, Abigail Stuart is working as a nurse in St. Louis, caring for dying Confederate prisoners when she is proposed to by a soldier named Jeremiah Calhoun who asks her to take care of his farm, his fiance and his family.
As Abigail essentially has no family of her own, she accepts his proposal, and after his death, heads to Jeremiah’s hometown. She is quickly accepted by his mother an hes to care for his sister, who has rheumatic fever. She even meets his fiance, who seems to have moved on.
Just as she is settling in to the family, a man shows up claiming to be Jeremiah Calhoun.
Now of course I can’t tell you what happens from there. But I can tell you that you will love this book if you are a fan of romance of the more innocent variety. You are definitely left guessing what will happen until the very end. I look forward to reading more from this author.
