I enjoyed this story. It wasn't fantastic, but I liked the struggle between the main characters and their waring feeling for each other. The author did a much better job of concealing the villain in the story than the oh-so-obvious culprit of her book "Now and Always". I must say, I never read a story line that includes ostriches.

The prologue starts the story in 1865 with four men coming home from the Civil War. A tragic incident happens. The book jumps ahead 33 years to 1898. The story revolves around the story of two of the four men's children. Adam and Vonnie fell in love. The two young people sneaked away (7 years earlier in 1891) and talk a judge into marrying them. Then the girl gets cold feet and begs her husband of a few hours to get their brief marriage annulled. Adam is crushed but complies with Vonnie's wishes ...more
I have to agree with another reviewer who described the lead, Vonnie Taylor, as wishy-washy. She is. She is stubborn and, at times, very stupid. Why authors believe that these qualities would be endearing or desirable to men is beyond me.

The prologue features a shootout that leaves a family dead and begets a bitter, lifelong feud between two men which reaches their offspring, Vonnie Taylor and Adam Baldwin. Married for a scant 24 hours when they were adolescents, Vonnie is now a much-admired se
Well, I think the writing itself was pretty good, but the characters and the storyline were just...ridiculous. That much drama is a bit overdone and there is a reason soap operas aren't made into my knowledge. If they are, then there's a reason not many people know about it. I gave it two stars because I like the author's writing style and the premise was a good one, but the circumstances surrounding it were awful. There is no way any self respecting man would still have feelings for ...more

How nice that Lori re-wrote her story for the Inspirational/Christian market!

A lovely story of three families who have hidden deep bitterness from an incident soon after the Civil War. The event and rift threatened a second generation teen unconsummated marriage forever dies, and another painfully reveals the issues involved. A story of love. loss, reconciliation and forgiveness. I recommend!

Lori Copeland is an excellent author. I don't think I have ever been disappointed in any of her books that I have read. This book was rewritten in a Christian format which brought a lot to the story. I loved all the characters, the only part that I had a hard time believing was that two characters in the book both went bonkers when their spouses died. Otherwise, good book.

A very light read but at the same time very compelling. It was definitely a very strong female main character development story from start to finish with ample mystery/suspense and romance tossed together.
I really enjoyed this book most of the way through it, but it cut off weird at the end and really didn't wrap up very well. There are still things that I am not sure who did them and their reasons for doing what they did.

This was a wonderful book! Lori Copeland has always been a favorite of mine. This book just confirmed why!
Ugh. Too religious. It's added in and just too forced. The author even says she adds in her "values" since the book was published the first time.

I love books by Lori Copeland. She has a quick wit and the books are very clean. This is a love story in Texas in the 19th century.

Another good book of Lori Copeland. An old west novel.

Wow, this one had a lot of ups and downs. Was totally clueless on the who done it part. That one supprised me big time.

Romance, some mystery, a great author. Good book.
This was okay, but a bit dragged out. I felt like the characters allowed easily fixed problems to separate them.

I liked this book. I really didn't know who the bad guy was until the author told us. A good story. Not too corny(only a little bit).

I enjoy Lori Copeland's book, but they are very predictable with little conflict in the plot. I read them when I want a light read that won't take over my life.

I really liked this book. It had all the elements a good Historical Romance book should have without all the steamy romance scenes but a sweet romance none the less with an edge of mystery as well.
