-- Separated from Madison when he leaves to fight the French and Indians, Elanna Hanssen must choose between her heart and her head, especially when Madison's integrity is questioned.
-- "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not until thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." ~Proverbs 3:5-6
Innocence paired with wisdom beyond her years. With these traits, Elanna Hanssen unwittingly captures the attentions of Major Madison Scott. Her honest desire to understand the war fascinates him, and he resolves to get to know this perspicacious young lady better. When his military duty separates them, they begin a correspondence, cautiously baring their hearts to each other. Elanna has never known emotions like this before, but she is drawn to the integrity she sees in her major. When a local news reporter questions the major's credentials and activities, however, will she allow her heart or her head to rule? Can true love grow over such distance and around such obstacles?
Amber has done it again with another wonderful book. I love history and this book includes alot of history. I didn't know much about the English v French/Indian war. It was a brutal war and we get to learn some of the backdrop of what happened. The story between Madison and Elanna was well written. Throw in some questions about Madisons methods that cause concern and we have an Intriguing book. I really enjoyed how this story played out and how it was totally different from the normal historical romance novel. I cant wait for the next book by Amber to come out cos each one so far has gotten better. Well worth reading. 4.5 our of 5.
