Reluctant debutante Keziah Montgomery lives beneath the weighty expectations of her staunch Confederate family, forced to keep her epilepsy secret for fear of a scandal. As the tensions of the Civil War arrive on their doorstep in Savannah, Keziah sees little cause for balls and courting. Despite her discomfort, she cannot imagine an escape from her familial confines—until her old schoolmate Micah shows her a life-changing truth that sets her feet on a new path . . . as a conductor in the Underground Railroad.
Dr. Micah Greyson never hesitates to answer the call of duty, no matter how dangerous, until the enchanting Keziah walks back into his life and turns his well-ordered plans upside down. Torn between the life he has always known in Savannah and the fight for abolition, Micah struggles to discern God’s plan amid such turbulent times.
Battling an angry fiancé, a war-tattered brother, bounty hunters, and their own personal demons, Keziah and Micah must decide if true love is worth the price . . . and if they are strong enough to survive the unyielding pain of war.
My thoughts and giveaway:
What a beautiful cover. This book drew me in just by looking at it.
I have never read anything by Tara before but I will gladly do so again.
I loved this sneek peek at the Underground Railroad. Keziah’s heart for others was so strong.
Micah is a stubborn man who has the some kind heart as Keziah but holds back his own feelings for Keziah.
Keziah’s family frustrated me to no end. But the author did a wonderful job developing these characters as well.
I would say it was about half way through the book before I felt totally invested but then I couldn’t put it down and had to see how it would all work out.
If you like books set int he civil war era I have no doubt you will enjoy this book.
