Evelyn is now free of Walter. Once she finds her self-confidence, she's determined to do right by her son. Then she meets Nathaniel.
Nathaniel has also suffered due to the war. He's practically given away his land due to his grief. Now he must start over...
Vows, promises...the only concrete certainty is change! This point is made dynamically throughout the series but especially in this story. Nat's views on slavery were refreshing as were Evelyn's later. Enjoyed!
Book free for honest review.

Of all the books in this five star series (so far, as I am hopeful there will be more) this one is the most tense!
The war is over and the Brits have departed, leaving Charlestown to the residents. As is the case after any major conflict, there are people out of work and needing shelter. There were casualties as a result of battle, and Evelyn is a widow with a newborn son.

There is a struggle to find a new normal and in this particular town, the women intend to have their say. Many people are oppo

Betty Bolte’s fans are in for a real treat with another great book in the series of A More Perfect Union.

In the third book of the series, we met Evelyn who was left devastated after losi

When I sit down to write, the goal for my historical stories is to bring the lives of people in the past to life for my readers. I write both historical and contemporary stories featuring strong, loving women and brave, compassionate men. No matter whether the stories are set in the past or the present, I love to include a touch of the paranormal. In addition to romantic fiction, I've written seve ...more
