Geneva Garner's mind was fixed on survival, her unborn child, escaping out of Savannah, and getting away from the men in the white robes with hoods over their heads. Covered in dirt and smoke from the cellar where she took refuge when the Klan burned her plantation home, she fled on the first stagecoach headed north. She vowed never to trust a man again as long as there was breath in her body. They were all scoundrels and the past would haunt her forever.
Harry Reed Hamilton was on his way home from Savannah to Love's Valley, Pennsylvania. The Civil War had been over for two years and his term of enlistment was finally over. The only thing marring his happiness was the fact that he was riding with a dirty, heavy woman in the stagecoach. After consoling himself that it was only for a day, he was surprised to find himself and the large woman tossed out on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere after a stage heist.
Trapped together by fate, they travel by any means possible heading to Lynchburg, VA, where she hopes to find relatives.
A friendship buds amidst the difficulties they face. A love is born from the friendship but neither of them are willing to admit that the past can truly be forgotten and a sweet future can lie ahead.

Carolyn Brown and her husband live in southern Oklahoma. In addition to writing she enjoys reading and traveling.From Booklist:
Harry Reed Hamilton is finally on his way home from Savannah to Love's Valley when the stagecoach is robbed, and he and the only other passenger--a large, fat, dirty woman who won't speak--take shelter in an abandoned slave cabin miles from anywhere. Walking so far brings on a premature birth, and he discovers that his companion is actually slender and lovely when she is cleaned up. Geneva is on the run after seeing her husband strung up by the Klan and narrowly escaping being burnt to death in her own home, but the men under the white robes are actually the sheriff and his deputies, and they will not stop until she and her baby are dead. Harry promises to get them both safely to her aunt in Lynchburg, while the sheriff continues to hunt for them. The fourth in Brown's Love's Valley series, Redemption will appeal to readers of inspirational fiction as well as to those who enjoy historical romances set during the post-Civil War Reconstruction.
