His Steadfast Love by Golden Keyes Parsons

Amanda is a beautiful southern belle from Texas that is dedicated to her family.  Marriage is the furthest thing from her mind because of a promise she made to her dying mother to raise and take care of her siblings.  Then she meets Captain Kent Littlefield and the attraction between them is undeniable. 

Shortly after they meet Texas secedes from the Union and Kent remains a captain with the Union troops.  Amanda's brother Daniel aligns with the Confederate States and now her heart is torn between the two men she is closest to and the two sides of the conflict.  Amanda prays, but does not hear an answer.  She must trust God to deliver her family from the chaos of war and lead her in the direction she should take concerning Kent.  Will she survive with her heart and faith intact??  Read to find out!!

I love reading books set in the Civil War era.   This book has roots deep in history.  I loved reading about the conflict Amanda goes through and how she prays and trusts in the Lord to guide her path.  How hard it would be to be torn between your love for a man and your love for your family and your statehood.  Her brother Daniel proves to be a real hindrance in Amanda and Kent's relationship.  After the war he changes and is bitter and hateful.  It is wonderful to read and see this man come to terms with his feelings and begin to heal.  And who doesn't love a good love story that conquers all!  That no matter what the hindrances or what other's think, they know they must be together, but must they lose everything else....hmmm, I'm not telling. ;)

I give this book 5 stars and recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical christian fiction.
