Alone after the war, a Confederate widow takes in a destitute Union captain
As she breaks her back to plow her barren fields, Karen Courtney cannot help but glance at the road towards Mobile, hoping to see her beloved husband riding home. He has been gone for four years, and though she knows he must be dead, her broken heart refuses to give up hope. Finally, a man arrives, but not the sort for which she was looking. He is not Southern; he is not a gentleman. But Kurt Northway may prove to be just the man for whom she was waiting. A Yankee captain whose Southern wife died during the war, he has come to Alabama to retrieve his son. Friendless, broke, and far from the Mason-Dixon Line, he begs Karen for work for the sake of the boy, and she takes pity on the child. At Karen’s shattered farm, love will take root—if her Confederate heart is not too proud to let it flourish.

About the author (2012)

Nan Ryan (1936–2017) was an award-winning historical romance author. She was born in Graham, Texas, to Glen Henderson, a rancher postmaster, and Roxy Bost. She began writing when she was inspired by a Newsweek article about women who traded corporate careers for the craft of romantic fiction. She immediately wrote a first draft that she refused to let see the light of day, and was off and running with the success of her second novel Kathleen’s Surrender (1983), a story about a Southern belle’s passionate affair with a mysterious gambler. Her husband, Joe Ryan, was a television executive, and his career took them all over the country, with each new town providing fodder for Ryan’s stories. A USA Today bestseller, she enjoyed critical success the Literary Guild called “incomparable.” When she wasn’t writing, she was an avid sports handicapper, and a supporter and contributor to the Shriners Hospitals for Children and Juvenile Diabetes since the 1980s. Ryan passed away peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her proud and loving family.
