It kept me reading -- a story from post-Revolutionary War days -- a young woman, and her baby, sailing from England to America to escape a potential marriage to a man who had killed her husband and to whom she was indebted for her husband's debts. They were accompanied by a runaway slave who carried his child. They built a new life on a plantation in the Carolinas until the past came back to haunt her and their faith, strength and capacity to love are tested to the limit. A story of the struggle ...more

This book was recommended to me by my friends, and I read it and enjoyed it for the very reasons they gave ("exciting", "twists and turns", "good dose of history" etc.), but I'm afraid to say that for me personally it still didn't get more than three stars.

I could not put this book down! Read it in 1 day and wanted more. Love the writing style that incorporates multiple thoughts and words of several people onto the same page. Wish more writers used this style. My curiosity was peaked throughout every page. This story is unique and no one could've written it better!

I got this and the second in the series because of the name "Catawba" being the "ghost town" name of the area where I grew up in Florida. I found out later that the author/editor (joint work with her mother, I believe) lives nearby, though I still haven't had the pleasure of meeting her!

This is my all-time favorite book. I have read this book too many times to count. I never get tired of the story. I only wish there were more books in the series! Very well written Christian romance novel!!!
Good book. It kept me interested until the end, and the author stayed somewhat consistent with the period. I look forward to reading the sequel.
Bills itself as a story of strong women during the colonial history of America, but turns out to be a poorly written romance novel.
