Hero is the town bastard who comes home after a very successful career in the army during the Civil War.  Town still treats him badly because his Mother was one of the saloon ladies of the night.   Heroine need a new husband because hers died in Civil War and she doesn't want to sell the farm he worked so hard to establish.  She approaches the Hero to become her husband because available men are so hard to find after the war kills them off and her in-laws treats the new couple like ca-ca.   A former girlfriend of the Hero has a little girl that she doesn't tell him is his, but gets him to take the little girl when she dies of comsumption. 

I just can't remember the author or the title.
