Hannah Dandridge is a stubborn, strong willed woman who is left to care for her siblings and the family ranch during her father's absence. However, her father's business partner has his own ideas for the family, stirring up trouble as he goes. He offers to marry Hannah which would solve many of her problems, but she does not want to be forced into a loveless marriage.
When William Barnett shows up things become complicated. His family owned the property prior to the war and he has come home to claim what's his. The wounded solider is surprised to find the ranch occupied by Hannah's family. What follows is a captivating story of love, apprehension, trials and faith. Peterson does a great job developing her characters and you really find yourself rooting for the 'good' guys.
I highly recommend this book which is Book 1 of the Land Of The Lone Star series. I cannot wait until I can get a hold of Book 2. Finding time to read it is another story....
