Library Journal Review

After receiving news that her fiance, Rand Campbell, was killed fighting for the Union, a grieving Sarah Montgomery agrees to her dying father's wishes that she marry wealthy Ben Croftner. Almost immediately after the announcement of their engagement, she regrets her decision, sensing there is something not quite right about Ben. Not wishing to disappoint her family, she carries on with the charade until the day of her bridal shower when Rand walks through the door. VERDICT This suspenseful post-Civil War historical (the first volume in a six-part series) by Coble ("Rock Harbor" series) will keep the author's growing audience on edge with its intense quick pace; the cliff-hanger ending will leave them eagerly awaiting the next installment. [Barbour originally published this series as four books (Where Leads the Promise; Plains of Promise; The Heart Answers; To Love a Stranger), the first two in 1998 and the second two in 1999. After the rights reverted to Coble, she reworked and divided the stories into six books. According to marketing director Katie Bond, Thomas Nelson is using this series to introduce readers to her early works.-Ed.] (c) Copyright 2015.
