Much to the misunderstanding of many - Deacon Sinclair is a strong representative of his times and environment, plus the results of a prideful daddy.
Here again is Tyler Fairfax who seems to be every one's nemesis and trying once again to confuse the issues. Boy, did he almost pay for it.
Finally Patrice and Reeve Garrett Glendower get their child, a son. Love the name.
Will Starla and Hamilton Dodge find out what a sneak thief their son Christien is turning into? He is well into becoming like his uncle Tyler.
Would like to have heard more about Noble Banning and his wife but he will probably have to pull Tyler out the fire.
Deacon had been formed by his father and tempered in the fires of war and now had a lot to learn about love and expressing it. Luckily he had three women to help him learn, his mother, Hannah, who seemed to be keeping company with Garnet's "husband", his sister, Patrice Garrett, who refused to give up on him, and Garnett, who started out wanting to bring him to his knees. Wow, what happened when she did. She won all the way around.
Deacon had learned to shut down his emotions, except when he first met Garnett, in order to survive, both at home and in the deadly theater of war where he could trust no one. He was learning to bow, with compassion, but was unbroken of spirit.
In the heat of the Civil War, a blue uniformed Deacon Sinclair was nursed to health by beautiful Garnet Davis. First he captured her heart and then he stole her innocence, for he was neither really wounded nor Union and though he took away valuable information to his graycout comrades, he left something behind, a babe he never knew was his. Years later, Deacon has returned to Pride County, ready to test his rippling muscles against the yoke of servitude to buy back his heritage. B ut Garnet must also struggle: can she trust this man who once shattered her world but took her to dizzying heights of passion and completed a union stronger than any forged by war?
