"a superb novel that blends romance with post-Civil War history...and the evolution of our nation as it struggled through this turbulent time." --CBA Retailers & Resources

"Peterson has done her history homework and writes with the confidence acquired over the course of authoring more than 90 novels...Peterson's many fans will certainly be pleased with this foray into Texas history." --Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap:

As the War Between the States comes to a close, Laura Marquardt is grateful to put the years of pain and loss behind her. But emotions remain high between the residents of Corpus Christi, Texas, where loyalties are still split between the North and the South.

Though Laura dreams of finding love, it is her younger sister, Carissa, who quickly marries. Despite her sister's joy, Laura simply can't shake the growing unease she has for the man. When hints of his true nature are revealed and Carissa is caught in the crosshairs, Laura must decide what steps she is willing to take to protect her sister. With the promise of love finally within her own grasp, will Laura be forced to surrender all she's longed for?
