This week, theChristian Fiction Blog Allianceis introducingHis Steadfast LoveThomas Nelson (November 1, 2011)byGolden Keyes ParsonsABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Golden Keyes Parsons writes historical fiction for Thomas Nelson Publishing, and is also a popular retreat/conference speaker. Her highly acclaimed Darkness to Light Series chronicled the journey of her French Huguenot ancestors in 17th century France. Her newest novel, His Steadfast Love, a Civil War novel set in Texas, just released November 2011. Golden lives in Waco, TX, with her husband, Blaine, where they enjoy their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and are avid sports fan of their alma mater, Baylor University.

It isn’t until the Civil War comes to her doorstep that Amanda Bell must choose between love and family.

It’s the spring of 1861 on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Amanda never thought she would marry because of a promise she made to her dying mother, but her attraction to Captain Kent Littlefield is undeniable.

When Texas secedes from the Union, her brother Daniel aligns with the Confederate States, while Kent remains with the Union troops.

Her heart is torn between the two men she is closest to and the two sides of the conflict. Amanda prays to God for direction and support, but hears only silence. Where is God in the atrocities of war-and whose side is He on?

Amanda senses her life is at a turning point. She must trust God to deliver her family through the chaos of war with her heart and her faith intact.

My Thoughts on the Book!

Set in the Civil War era, this story follows the forbidden love between Southern lady Amanda Belle and Northern Captain Kent Littlefield. Can you imagine the upset in each of these families with the fighting between the North and the South, especially since Amanda’s brother Daniel has been called to fight? But Amanda and Captain Littlefield are so much in love they are determined to be together after the war.

I really enjoyed Captain Littlefield and Amanda’s story. This is truly a book filled with emotions as these two characters so much in love struggle through the commands of their rival families, as well as the demands of war keeping them apart. And the history in this book, Wow! The author truly did her job so very well in researching the details of this war between the Confederacy and the Union. Between the detailed history and the romance between Kent and Amanda, this book drew me in so close that I just couldn’t put it down. I really like the writing style of the author too! The story just flows through so well making it a fast and very enjoyable read.
