    Read The Wedding Promise first.................................

    Read The Wedding Promise first.......................................................................................................................
    It gives a lot more needed background to this book. The first book leaves off with secondary characters Jake and Rena headed towards their own happily ever after. But their happiness is short lived and Jake is left witha small child and a mountain of grief.. Three years later enter Alicia to the rescue. The wheel chair bound veteran and the pudgy school teacher are not your average romantic couple ---but they'll do. A good read.

    WONDERFUL, TOUCHING, BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN

    I highly recommend reading THE WEDDING PROMISE first as the characters in REDEMPTION first appear therein. I just finished reading REDEMPTION,a wonderful book, the first time in AGES I have been truly sorry when I read the last page - I wanted it to go on and on. The story immediately has you involved in each character. The conversations between Alicia and Jake draw you into their lives and you feel their pain, their feelings , their situations which there are many but love CAN solve problems!!

    A fine late Reconstruction Era romance

    He came back from the war wheelchair bound, but Jake McPherson¿s sweetheart Lorena pulled him out of his depression they married and had a son Jason. However, in 1877 Lorena died and the spark she gave to Jake was buried with her. Three years later, Jake remains a recluse while his nine year old son gets into trouble.---- Schoolteacher Alicia Merriweather takes Jake and Jason to task for the lad¿s behavior and the dad¿s neglect. Though she dislikes Jake, Alicia begins to take care of Jason and clean up their house. He soon out of the blue offers a marriage of convenience that she accepts. As they become better acquainted with one another, she sees the decent man hiding insider an acrimonious shell while he sees the caring nurturing woman hidden by her tall rigid spinster armor. Their admiration turns to love, but neither takes the first key step out of fear of ridicule and rejection.------ REDEMPTION is a fine late Reconstruction Era romance starring a courageous take no prisoners heroine, a crusty angry war veteran whose deceased wife was a nice nurturing person, and a neglected preadolescent growing up too fast (mindful of a lock key child). The interrelationship between the trio makes the tale worth reading as Jake realizes how fortunate he is to find love for the second time pulling him out of his depression. Though he, in some ways mentally heals too easily, historical readers will appreciate this fine look at the therapeutic power of love.-------- Harriet Klausner
