It is the first in a new series entitles Land of the Lone Star which means it takes place in Texas. I love to read anything about Texas that I can get my hands on, and this did NOT disappoint me at all. I will admit that the storyline was nothing like I thought it would be. Hannah Dandridge has been uprooted by her two-time widowed father from Civil War destroyed Vicksburg, MS, to an area outside of Dallas, TX. Mr. Lockhart, her father's business partner, is trying to win Hannah's hand in marriage as well as the land her family is living on. He is having troubles doing both, but his troubles rise when William Barnett comes back home - to the land Hannah and her family are living on. The town sees William as a traitor. Hannah sees William as one who can help with the land until it is decided who actually owns the land.
Land is torn. People are torn. Tracie Peterson does a wonderful job holding her readers' attention until the very end.
