“The Loyal Heart” by Shelley Shepard Grey, book review
A Lone Star Hero’s Love Story #1
The War Between the States if over and the country is trying to put all the pieces back together again. It is hardest for those wives who lost husbands, like Miranda. Philip died from an injury while interned in a prisoner of war camp. She is forced to turn his childhood home into a boarding house to support herself.
The men who survived the war must also try to return to their normal lives, whatever that looks like now. For Robert Truax and his fellow officers in the CSA who spent the last months of the war in the prison camp, this means taking care of their fallen officers’ families.
Following orders from his captain, Robert travels to Galveston to check on Miranda, when rumors surface that she is being mistreated. He finds the rumors to be true and sets out to right the wrongs she has endured. But in the process, he falls in love with her.
This is an easy to read book with lots of character development and a few plot twists. I am eager to read book #2.
