Sinopsis:

Left a penniless widow when her husband is killed during the Civil War, Eden Clayborne comes face to face with the man who had sent her husband into battle, Major Jesse Bainbridge, when he arrives badly wounded at her North Carolina home. Original.

Review:

Jesse Bainbridge has come to this ridge in North Carolina because of guilt. As company commander, he feels responsible for the death of Alston Clayborne and when he finds out that Alston's widow is pregnant, that only deepens his guilt. But Eden Clayborne is a Yankee and he can't hide the resentment he feels toward the Yankees that destroyed the South. At the same time, he can't deny that he feels something for Eden, despite the fact that she is carrying another man's child. Even after he leaves her and returns to his own home and fiance in Georgia, Jesse can't forget Eden and can't stop worrying about how she will manage as her pregnancy progresses. Eden has learned how to survive on her own since her husband's death. Her mother-in-law Hannah is bed ridden, slowly wasting away as she grieves for her son. So it is up to Eden to do all the chores and keep things running. She was anxious for Jesse to leave, but she can't forget the kiss they shared before he left. It's silly of her to think about Jesse, especially since they share the guilt of Alston's death. She never really loved her husband as a wife should and she can't forgive herself for letting him return to battle. No matter what she might have felt for Jesse in those few brief days, it doesn't matter because she will never see him again. When Jesse and his cousin Cade return to North Carolina it is because Jesse is determined to help Eden until the baby comes. Eden is angry that he thinks she can't survive on her own, but she is also a little relieved to have help. Having Jesse and Cade around seems to help Hannah's health, so Eden agrees to let them stay for a little while. The problem is, the feelings between Jesse and Eden won't go away. Despite their differences, they share a bond that is deeper and stronger than either of them has ever felt. But will Eden send Jesse away or will he be able to convince her to let him stay?Elizabeth Graham dazzles us again! Her characters ring true and her attention to historical detail makes for a fascinating glimpse into the past! A touching story of two people from different worlds who find love! A romantic and heartwarming tale sure to be noticed! A marvelous story from the very talented Elizabeth Graham! She never fails to entertain and historical fans will love her settings! She paints a picture with words that lingers long after the last page!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
