For fans of Kristen Hannah, Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve, Victor's Blessing offers an interwoven love triangle of passion, torment, betrayal and perhaps the most challenging of all human emotions, forgiveness.

Victor Gant 6'5",the son of an Osage slave, is an unexpected hero for a Civil War tale. A self-made man he prospers In Ste. Genevieve Missouri. He is well liked, respected and makes a proper living as the town's favorite blacksmith. Ethan,his boyhood friend, is well educated and wealthy, and the two forge an unlikely bond.

All Victor's dreams come true when he marries the only woman that caught his eye, the town's shy beauty. But dreams can be fleeting and when the two men enlist in the Union army, Victor comes to realize that secret longings and bitter resentment are ebbing away at he and Ethan's bond. A decades old wound becomes infected with jealousy, a jealousy that collides with honor and all that is decent.

For Victor to keep one promise, another must be broken, forcing him to bestow an agonizing blessing of his own.

About the Author

Barbara Sontheimer has a B.A. from a little college in the bootheel of Missouri and spent 15 years researching and writing Victor's Blessing while raising 3 children. A fascination with the everyday life of the people not battles was the driving force. One of her greatest hopes for her novel is that someone turns out the light a bit too late on a work night, or (like she did) occasionally hid from her kids in the laundry room to finish a chapter. Barbara is married and lives in Lake Ozark, Missouri.
