Set in Texas during the Civil war, life was not easy for Hannah Dandridge and her family. When her father goes to see his sick mother, Hanna is left to take care of her younger siblings and the the ranch her father recently acquired. The war had caused so my division in Texas, and even the ranch now owned by Hannah’s family was was questionable. When William Barnett shows up and finds his family ranch occupied by someone else, he determines to get his family’s homestead back.

Being a story written during the Civil War, some parts of this story is so difficult to read. But it’s something we all need to understand, that life has not always been as easy as it is for most of us today. And Tracie Peterson does what she always does so well, writes a story that will capture you from the very beginning and keep you interested until the last page. There’s a lot happening, difficulties and betrayal, many twists and turns. I love the suspense, and enough romance to make you want to see what happens next with this couple. And I thank this author for weaving the storming faith of Hannah during all of the decision she had to make. And that through it all, God was there with her.

This book was given to me by the publisher to read and review and post what I think about the story. This review offers my opinion only. The 5 Star rating is my opinion of how well the story flows, how well written, and just my overall opinion.
This book is a Christian fiction novel set in the 1860's in Texas. Hannah Dandridge is taking care of her two siblings, Andy who is 8 and Martha who is 5. They live on a ranch that was given to her father as a reward for service given to the Confederates. The former owner was William Barnett who left to fight for the Union Army. Hannah's father has been gone for quite a while to visit his mother who was sick in Vicksburg after it fell to the Union. her father has a business partner Mr. Lockhart who is a lawyer who doesn't abide by the law. He he wants to marry Hannah. William returns from the war to find his ranch taken oven by Hannah. The story covers many issues about different kinds of people--blacks,Commanches, Yankees and Confederates, and Spanish servants. Learning to let God guide your life is a big part of the story.

I so wanted to like this, especially after investing in the audiobook. Sorry I wasted the money.
This would have made a great melodrama on an old west stage platform, but as an adult book, not so much.
The writing seemed more geared toward teen or preteen.

Hannah's father bought a house that had been seized by the state when the owners went off to fight in the civil war on the opposite side as the state of Texas. The state considered the property forfeit.

In comes the villain with the black hat and black mustache (Herbert). Asking for her hand in marriage (he only wants her land) as he leads her to believe her father left her stranded on the ranch to go back east to tend to her Grandmother, you can just hear the piano playing the bad guy/suspense music, and the audience hissing and calling out, "Boo!!"

In comes the handsome hero, William, the son of the previous owner, who just happens to speak both Spanish and Comanche and has a sympathy-eliciting war wound. And the crowd calls out, "Yay!"

Of course you can see where this leads... and you'd be right.

Amateurish, predictable and one I will not recommend to a seasoned reader.
Hannah Dandridge has always been the dutiful daughter, raising her young half-siblings as her own when their mother died. Leaving her beau behind when her father moved them all from Mississippi to Texas. Doing what was expected of her.

But now her father is missing, perhaps even killed, and she’s got to make some decisions on her own. While it would be easy to follow the advice of others, including her father’s law partner who wants to marry her, Hannah is more than ready to stand on her own two feet.

William Barnett was dragged into a war he didn’t believe in. Still recovering from a wound to his leg, he returns to his family’s ranch only to find it overtaken by another family. Texas has seceded from the Union and anyone who wore the blue uniforms wasn’t wanted there. But William plans to stay and fight for what is his. Which may include the spunky Hannah Dandridge living on his ranch.

Nice story that hits some sensitive points about those who fought for what they believed in, and those who didn’t. A complex look at what the Civil War meant, wrapped in a nice romance.
On a ranch in Texas, Hannah is struggling to raise her little brother and sister, while her widowed father travels back home to see his ailing mother. It’s a dangerous trip considering he has to travel through Indian Territory where the Indians, settlers and soldiers have been fighting each other; and also the Civil War is raging in Vicksburg where their family home is located. The War has divided families and friends in Texas, where even the ranch her father bought was confiscated from the family who owned it because they were considered traitors.

When the youngest son, William, returns he finds Hannah and her siblings living on his property, and Hannah’s fathers’ business partner telling him it’s not his home anymore. The man wants him to leave, but Hannah doesn’t want to turn William away, so they come to an uneasy truce while things get sorted out. Months go by with no word from Hannah’s father, and his business partner is pressuring her to marry him. Not knowing if her father is dead or wounded, and not knowing if William can take back the ranch, she wonders if marrying a man she doesn’t love would be the best for her and her siblings. I really got caught up into this novel of hard times, love and betrayal. Hannah is a strong female character whose faith in God sustains her through difficult times. The author shows all sides of a complex time in our history, and she knows how much suspense will keep the reader turning the pages. 5 stars.
