I’ve been very honored to read Cobb’s books for a long time now. I knew that she had something special from the first time I read a daft of one of her stories. I adored the Steadfast Love Series and I was very excited to hear about this book, which is related but stands alone. I had high expectations going into this book, but those expectations were surpassed. This book is amazing!

Once again, Cobb brings her lyrical writing to this story. Her style reminds me some of Rosanna White, yet it is very much her own. It’s beautiful to read and make you want to gush over every page. The descriptions are vivid and the emotions spill out of the book directly into your heart.

Anna and Tudder both are such dynamic characters with real struggles. Anna has panic attacks and has trouble speaking sometimes. Tudder is impatient and has a bit of a temper. Yet, they both also love God and allow Him to work in their lives. As they grow over the course of the story, it was like a personal victory because I felt like they were my friends.

The story is hard to describe, it isn’t very suspenseful, but it also makes you want to keep flipping pages. There isn’t a lot of kissing or physical attraction described, yet the romance pulls at your heart and makes you cheer. I really felt like I entered these characters victories and sorrows with them.

I highly recommend this book to those who love sweet romance stories, historical fiction novels, and those that would like to see their favorite characters for the Steadfast Love Series again.


I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I was not required to give a positive review. All the opinions are entirely my own.
