As a child, Libba Ramsey lost her family in the Civil War. Her life since then—orphaned, a charity case—has been hard. Now the kindly Wadley family of central Georgia has invited her to their home in Macon. But how can a young woman still struggling with memories of the war’s horrors find a future in a new place? And how can she ever give her heart to a man until she fully resolves her past?
The fourth book in Jacquelyn Cook’s popular and inspirational River series once again treats her fans to vivid, heartfelt, historically accurate stories of faith, romance and hope. Praised by historians and beloved by readers, Cook’s intimate, sentimental novels of the antebellum South—respectful yet celebrating the transformation of that era—are modern classics.
