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 was an award-winning historical romance author. The daughter of a Texas rancher, she began writing in 1981, inspired by a Newsweek article about women who traded corporate careers for the craft of romantic fiction. She found success with her second novel, Kathleen’s Surrender (1983), a story of a Southern belle’s passionate affair with a mysterious gambler. Ryan continued writing romances, publishing novels such as Silken Bondage (1989), The Scandalous Miss Howard (2002), and The Countess Misbehaves (2000). 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. Ryan passed away in 2017 at the age of eighty.
