A wonderful love story set during the aftermath of the war of 1812. This story takes us to a farm in 1814 Baltimore, Maryland. During an attack on the family farm by the British, Rose McGuire is save by a British officer, Alexander Reed. He is wounded and she in turn saves him. Both main characters have issues from their past that have tormented them they are also on different sides of the conflicts. Rose is taking a great many chances in harboring Alexander.
I was so engrossed in this story, I was unable to put it down. This was one of the sweetest love stories I have read (and I read many!) I am looking forward to reading the next in this series, but these books are also fine as a stand alone. I was fortunate enough to receive a pre publication copy of this book to review.
