Genre: Historical Romance
Holby captures the Civil War, through one family's experiences, in a way that makes every aspect of the war come to life.
After a horrific battle, Jake awakens in
As Shannon Mahoney tends to the wounded soldier, she realizes she can't do anything about Jake's lost memories. But she can give him new ones and take a chance by escaping her abusive father
Meanwhile, Jake's sister Jenny is fighting a battle to save the family ranch from a ruthless land baron, and Jenny's friend Grace, who has lost so much in the war, discovers that she is pregnant.
If you're fascinated with the Civil War, Holby gives you everything you want and more in a tale that sweeps across most of the nation. The broad scope of the novel is both its strongest point and its weakest link. Even though characters' stories are woven together, there is a great deal to take in, from battles to ruthless land barons, amnesia to guilt, new loves to old ones, all of which can be difficult to follow.
