    2. Loved, loved, loved this book Enjoyed reading a romance from the Civil War era Ben is definitely my kind of guy I also liked the way Boeshaar weaves Christian messages throughout the story, without overdoing it.

    3. 2 1 2 rounded up to 3.I decided to round up to 3 as there was nothing bad or outrageous in this book you could give it to your teenager maybe it was written for them But there was nothing great about it otherwise The story line often feels unrealistic, like when the hero who is supposed to be hanging with troops looking for his brother is stopping at an acquaintance far above him in society and attending a ball with them on a whim things just don t flow very well The narrative is horribly modern [...]

    4. This was a very enjoyable Christian historical fiction novel set during the Civil War Valerie and Ben, the two main characters, were very realistic characters that I enjoyed getting to know through fiction The plot dealt with regional loyalties, family relationships, grief, revenge, and clean romance This is not a military story at all the civil war is of a background setting to the action I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

    9. I enjoyed this story and thought it was unique and very well written The conversations flowed nicely and came across as being realistic I thought the romance was off to a great start BUT and here s a bit of a reveal WARNING thought the author missed the mark when the groom didn t even kiss the bride before she left and signed the telegram with sincerely I know these are minor things but they can effect the story as a whole I don t think a man in love that just got married would send his bride of [...]

    13. When I started reading this book, I was certain that it was going to be a typical period romance where the two very attractive people that, at first, don t look like they belong end up together Then we get the happily ever after yadda yadda yadda You know what I mean I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there was much to this than the typical romance With some intrigue, twists and surprised, Boeshaar has crafted an enjoyable tale that takes us not only into the opening stages of a romanc [...]

    14. Book 1 in the Seasons of Redemption series, this was not quite the traditional historical romance I was expecting For the most part, I enjoyed the story Valerie and Ben are terrific characters James is a cad and Catherine is horrible, almost to the point of being a caricature I kept waiting for her family members to call her on her abysmal treatment of Valerie and no one ever did.My assumption is that since this is the first in the series, none of these characters have appeared in other Boeshaar [...]

    15. A great historical fiction I loved the characters The plot was thrilling and yet laced with reality, and the romance, sweet Set during the War Between the States, we get a glimpse of what it was like for those not off fighting for their beliefs Valerie Fontaine is used to wealth and the luxuries it affords Benjamin McCabe is a Missouri country boy, healing from a broken heart and searching for his missing brother God deems it fit to throw them together and life speeds on When Valerie s father is [...]

When Valerie Fontaine returns home from boarding school, she finds that her father does not welcome her Further, she has an unwelcome suitor and her father s house guest to entertain When she is forced to flee her home, scandal and lies dog her every step Can Valerie overcome the vicious sabotage that threatens to destroy her This was a really good book, it had perhaps a bit of a romantic plot line than I care for but it had many things about it that I did like For example, I loved that the you [...]

    17. This book is an absolute delight The plot was well organized and the characters well developed There was a part, however, where I felt that the plot was moving too quickly But given the circumstances in which the plot was forced to move at such a quick pace, maybe I m just trying to find something to complain about I love how throughout the book, the characters had to lean on God time and time again to get them through tough situations, thus strengthening their faith in the process I must warn y [...]

    18. My Take To be honest this book took awhile for me to get into I just wasn t drawn in right away like I am with other books I would read a few pages then put the book down This continued until I got about halfway through the book, then I didn t want to put the book down at all I couldn t wait to find out what happens between Valerie and Ben I was hoping that James Ladden ,who becomes Valerie s fiancee through a deal made by her father to pay a debt , would be taught a lesson Would Ben find his br [...]

    19. I realized why I had a hard time getting through this book It was not because I didn t like the writing style or the characters or even the plot It s the summary The summary reveals too much and exaggerates the plot I didn t start to get into the story until Chapter 14when I started learning something that wasn t told to me in the summary on the back of the book When there are only 22 chapters, this is extremely disappointing Good job at writing the book, Ms Boeshaar Bad job on the back cover to [...]

    20. Valerie and Benjamin feel an immediate connection when they meet They must triumph over her father, her suitor James, his cousin Catherine, and the Union army to gain a life together and Catherine is certain that Benjamin will her hers Diappointing that Valerie and Benjamin are separated for almost half of the book, so the story starts out as a 3 and instead of building to 4 it separates the couple and drops to a 2.

    21. Fabulous The plot can get a little preachy at times, but the messages are very touching There are nail biting, keep you up all night dramas in all 3 of the books in this series Unwilling Warrior Uncertain Heart and Unexpected Love Read each one in that order, or you won t know what s going on I read all 3 in 48 hours they re THAT GOOD
