I'm almost halfway through the book at this point and carry it with me everywhere. I've got two other books in various stages of completion (reading), but I grab this one when I have a spare moment. That should say something about how involved I am in the story.
Here's the scenario:
1. Ridley Cooper, Southern man. fights for the Union - then returns home.
2. Olivia Aberdeen, a Southern woman, ostracized because of her late husband's dealings with the North.
While my favorite genre is action/suspense, these characters have me wrapped around their pinkies. Tamera Alexander knows how to appeal to readers with deep emotion, impossible odds, and real-world problems.
Five stars for this one, folks!
