*His Steadfast Love*
This book review is for "His Steadfast Love" by Golden Keyes Parsons.
I love the cover on this book and appreciate all the research that I'm sure went into this novel.
This book is set in the spring of 1861 right before the Civil War breaks out.
Amanda Belle is ironically enough a Southern Belle from Texas. She meets a dashing Captain in the Union army at a church social before the war breaks out. Her father is the interim pastor of their towns congregation until a new one can be found. So far it has lasted two years.
Captain Kent Littlefield is quite taken with Amanda the moment he lays eyes on her at the social. However, before he can really take pursuit of her, the country is plunged into war and his unit recalled back to Virginia in preparation. Her father refuses permission for him to write to her. Being on opposite sides of the war has earned him a black mark it seems.
What God wants together will not be kept apart and Kent and Amanda find themselves thrown together again as the war is taken hold of the country. It is but altogether to brief an encounter for their wishes and not under the best of circumstances but it is enough time for them to admit their feelings and promise to wait for each other.
Amanda is caught between two worlds. Confederate and Union, brother and the man she loves, family obligation or desire of her heart. Will the war manage to rip the family apart for good or will they work through the tragedies that the Civil War wrought?
Really liked this book and read through it in one night :)
Happy reading my friends!
