About the Book
But Phineas Dunn finds nothing redemptive in the first horrors of war. Struggling for months to make it home alive, he returns to Savannah injured and cynical, and all too sure that he is not the hero Cordelia seems determined to make him.
As the War Between the States rages ever nearer and Savannah’s slaves start sneaking away to the islands off the coast to join the Yankees, both Phin and Cordelia get caught up in questions they never thought they’d have to ask–questions that threaten the very dreams of a future they’d cherished.

The cover of this book is absolutely lovely, and the title is perfect! The story inside is one to treasure. This book really has everything-Savannah's high society, the horrors of war, and loves lost and found. The best thing about the novel is that it presents hope. Delia hopes for Phin's safe return and is able to encourage his family. Luther relies on the promises of Scripture and transmits that to Phinneas through near-constant Bible reading. Most of the characters had their hope in the Lord, and were rewarded for their trust in Him.
Delia was such a sweet, highly-imaginative girl, whose gift of words were a blessing to those around her. Phinneas was a man of honor, initially untested, who came through with a deep faith and concern for his fellow man. Their desire to be together was tested throughout the story.
This stand-alone historical fiction novel is one of great depth. It was also quite a page-turner, as the tension grew and I was unable to put it down!
Historical romance fans will love this book, as well as Christian fiction readers, Civil War buffs, and fans of White's work. I highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.
