My Review:
Likes:  I loved this book, for me personally Serena B. Miller makes historical stories enjoyable.  I loved Ingrid, she was a character that you could see the love of Christ shining through. I especially loved how much Ingrid immediately fell in love with Joshua's children, from the moment they wed, she loved them as her own.   This story was the most wonderful story of love and sacrifice I have read in a while. Joshua Hunter was a character I loved at points in the story and one I wanted to shake some sense into at other points of the story.  
Dislikes/Dismays or Surprises:  I was dismayed to discover the back story behind Diantha, her mental health was an obvious issue, and she did not know enough to recognize the voices were something that needed treatment instead of being hidden.  Her lack of love and emotion for her children were disturbing.   Also Millicent was a character I totally disliked, she was a pampered spoiled brat who deceived her husband.  She was also cruel to Ingrid, berating her constantly and beating her.
Conclusion:  This book was a wonderful story.  My favorite Serena B. Miller book.  She has a wonderful writing style, that helps me to enjoy historical novels as never before.  Definitely a book to recommend to friends and share with others.  352 pages US $14.99 5 stars.
