 “His Steadfast Love” by Golden Keyes Parsons”

It is the year 1861 and trouble has arisen in The U.S. regarding the slave population.

Amanda Belle and her family dwell in Texas, a southern state. After promising to raise her sisters at her mother’s deathbed Amanda never dreamed of or contemplated the idea of marriage or a family of her own. Then she meets Captain Kent Littlefield and love blossoms, but they are forced to put aside their feelings as the civil war begins. Her brother, Daniel joins the Confederate army while Kent, being northern, remains with the Union. Amanda is torn between the two and the situation she finds herself in, all she can do is pray and have faith in God, how will it all turn out?

Recently I learned about the civil war era in history class, so I was curious to see how the civil war and the events that occurred during this time would play out in this book. The story was just all right; personally for me… it lacked that special spark. The love that was portrayed between Amanda and Kent didn’t seem to be as resistant and strong as they tried to depicted it… I honestly had a hard time connecting with the characters. Overall I rate this 3 stars, and if you are interested in this book because you would like to learn about the civil war, just remember this is a fiction book so the way events are played out aren’t what actually occurred.

Many thanks to Thomas Nelson publishers for providing me with a copy of this book to review.  I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
