This is part of a series, yet each book can easily stand alone. The story is intriguing and the characters are believable. I was totally captured by the storyline. It brought me to tears several times. Definitely a good read and I highly recommend the rest of the series.

Excellent book = I couldn't put it down. Great heroine, realistic characters and feelings and a great underlying message about the power of having trust in the Lord.

this was my first time to read lynn austin and i liked it. it was well written and the detail really brought you in. it was slightly long winded but as you can tell by the 4 and 1/2 star rating still a really good read. if you like christian fiction this is one of the better historical dramas. I look forward to reading the next in the series!

This is a really good Christian fiction book. I became engrossed in this book and read it in two days, which is pretty good for me. The characters are realistic and flawed which is sometimes not the case in Christian fiction. It takes place during the Civil war era from the perspective of the south. If you read this one you will want to read the next one. Highly recommended!

I truly enjoyed this novel. However, I must admit that I like the second in the series, Fire in the Night, about 5 times as much. There are a number of great plot twists that keep the novel moving and entrancing. The romance aspect of the novel occurs quite quickly in the beginning of the novel so those expecting a book with heavy romance might possibly be disappointed. However, the moments that it IS in the book are strong and excellently written.
