Book Description: Carrie Ann Collier has been a newlywed for nineteen blissful days--as blissful as life can be in the midst of war, that is. Soon that war will take a toll she never expected. When her new husband, Peyton, goes missing during battle, she refuses to believe he is dead, and must find a way to move forward with everyday life in the face of fear.
As Carrie struggles with how to welcome her estranged sister, Margaret, back into her life, another new arrival appears on her doorstep--her husband's best friend, and rebel officer, Eli. Wounded and bitter, Eli is nonetheless committed to keeping his promise to Peyton: take care of the Collier women, no matter what. But to Carrie, he's a painful reminder of her lost love.
Then unexpected news makes Carrie wonder if miracles do happen. If Carrie infiltrates the enemy once again, she might find out what really happened to the love of her life. Will Eli be able to keep his promise to keep her safe? Can they forgive each other if promises are broken?
My Thoughts: I enjoy novels/books by Andrea Boeshaar because I know that they will have a definite christian theme. She is a trust worthy author.
Carrie Ann Collier is a new bride, married only nineteen days when her new husband is missing in action. Except that Carrie doesn't believe he is dead. Carrie decides to follow her heart and find out if her husband is still alive.
But in the meantime, her sister, Margaret, decides to come back into her life. And then Carrie's husband's best friend, Eli, comes too. Eli comes because he made a promise to protect the Collier women.
Then Carrie decides that she will find her husband! And off she goes.
An well written christian historical romance.
The character and manners of days gone by are so real that one longs for the chivalry once again. And then, the character of Carrie and how she longs for her husband and to find him.
The story is realistic and without giving any spoilers the reader should know that Carrie is determined and stout. And live can be painful and beautiful at the same time. 💗
Somewhat of a surprise ending (at least for me).
A grand read!
