Rosanne Bittner is an internationally successful author of over fifty historical romances and has won numerous awards for her writing. She lives in southwest Lower Michigan. Her previous books include, The Blue Hawk Saga series, the Savage Destiny series, the America West series and the Mystic Indian series.From Booklist:
Jude Kingman has been ordered by his wealthy, powerful father to use any means, including force, to get all the farmers off their land to make room for a railroad. It goes against Jude’s basic nature to evict people and make them homeless, but his father has indicated that if Jude won’t do it, he’ll find someone who will, such as Jude’s ruthless brother, Mark. Jude becomes even more reluctant about the task at hand when he falls for Ingrid Svensson, who helps her widowed father run their farm. As the conflict escalates between the farmers and the railroad company, Ingrid clings to her faith, and maintains that Jude is not a bad man. Bittner captures the Machiavellian nature of railroad expansion in this captivating classic, which will work well in both inspirational-fiction and western-romance collections. --Shelley Mosley
