Enjoyable, sweet read that is part of a series. Taking place in CharlesTown, SC during the historic transitional period after 1776 , our characters fight emotions, loyalty, and love. Well done. 242 pages
Awesome idea phonix
I really enjoyed this book. Emily has made a vow to never marry with her cousin Amy and her friend Samantha. They have each made the vow for their own reasons. Emily is afraid of childbirth, both her mother and her sister died because of it. She figures if she never marries she won't have to worry about that. Her sister, Elizabeth was set to marry Jedidiah the brother of the man she secretly hoped to marry herself. But before the bans could be read a third time he was sent away to war and died. Frank married Elizabeth so his nephew wouldn't be born a bastard and then left to fight in the war himself. When Elizabeth died Emily promised to take on and raise the child while Frank was away fighting in the war. Now Frank is back and so are all the feelings Emily had for him before. He feels the same way she does and is determined to find a way to get her to be his wife. Will Frank find a way to shoe Emily how is feels and get her to marry him? The book takes places in the late 1700s. You read about more than just how Emily and Frank find their way back to each other. You read about what is going on with the war and how it affected everyone. The girls have a great bond and are there for each other through everything. I am excited to read the next book in this series. This book is very well written. The characters are engaging and pull you into the story. I will say that it was slow at some points for me but overall I really liked the book. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
*An enjoyable read but I did skim over some areas that moved slow...
Good story, some parts I did found myself not liking, but overall a a very good story. Complete story, HEA! *vrnb*
