Will the war force her to abandon her newfound love?

The War Between the States has Valerie Fontaine frightened about her future. And when her wealthy father is charged with supplying Federal gunboats in order to save his shipping business, Valerie is suspected of conspiracy. Suddenly she’s forced to flee her upscale New Orleans home or be taken into custody by Confederate troops.

Benjamin McCabe has a noble dream to make his mark on the world and has decided that photographing the Civil War is the way to accomplish it. But since the Battle of Bull Run, his brother Luke has been missing, and Ben is determined to find him. His stop in New Orleans is supposed to be a temporary one–until he meets and falls in love with Miss Valerie Fontaine.

When Valerie’s father is arrested, Ben secures a way for her to leave the city and travel to his family’s home where she’ll be safe. He promises that as soon as he finds Luke, he’ll be home and they can begin their life together. But once Valerie steps off the train, she finds herself caught up in a web of lies that threaten to imprison her more than Yankee steel bars ever could.
My Review:

I’ve read Andrea’s books for years, and enjoyed them. This one is even better than those that went before. The way she crafted this store was so beautiful and seamlessly pulls emotions and events together with words that paint more of a picture than most books do. I loved reading it. I found it hard to put down and kept going back to the story as quickly as I possibly could.

Strang Publishing has done a wonderful job of choosing the authors to launch their new Realms historical fiction line. I look forward to more of the same quality of books, especially the next one in this series. I give this book 5 stars.
