Davina's older children are outraged at Stanley's presence in their home, but no one could have anticipated the results of his presence among them:
* The kindling of romance between Stanley and Davina's teenaged daughter, Anna
* The challenge Stanley's presence brings to Davina's relationship with the Jacksons, her family of slaves
* The uncontrollable enmity with which Davina's son Luke regards Stanley
* The warmth that develops between Stanley and Davina herself
Until Shiloh Comes, the first novel in the Shiloh Trilogy, is a story of love--love between Stanley and Anna, and love among the members of the two families on the farm, one white, one black. It is a story of personal choices and their consequences. And it's the story of the fight to save Stanley from the grief-fueled anger of Southerners who would rather kill a Yankee than allow him to live among them.
Once you have begun to read Until Shiloh Comes, you won't be able to put it down.

A christian family finds it is hard to love a yankee and help him heal from some serious wounds. Even though they are doing this because the son, Aaron, asked his mother to before he died, they finally see what Jesus means in Matthew about the golden rule. I will definitely recommend this book and will watch for more by this author.
