Can love survive the secrets kept buried within a tormented heart?
Roxanna Rowan may be a genteel Virginia woman, but she is determined to brave the wilds of the untamed frontier to reach a remote Kentucky fort. Eager to reunite with her father, who serves under Colonel Cassius McLinn, Roxanna is devastated to find that her father has been killed on a campaign.
Penniless and out of options, Roxanna is forced to remain at the fort. As she spends more and more time with the fiery Colonel McLinn, the fort is abuzz with intrigue and innuendo. Can Roxanna truly know who the colonel is--and what he's done?
Immerse yourself in this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness set in the tumultuous world of the frontier in 1779.
My Thoughts: This is one of those books that stays with you even when you close the book. I felt as though I was right there in the fort, experiencing everything right along with Roxanna. Roxanna may have been a "genteel" woman however she is definitely her father's daughter. When she needed to stand up and get things done she did.
Don't forget to tuck this one your bag for your Labor Day get away. I highly recommend it! I give this book a lighthouse and shine a light on it for pointing a path to God!
