Highly engrossing… a full-bodied historical drama.
Two people grapple with lost love and heartache in Cheatham’s expansive seventh installment in the Covington Chronicles set in the first World War era. Growing up, Trudy Cameron has always thought she would marry Jeremy Smitherlin, her childhood friend, but the circumstances separate the young couple. Trudy moves on and falls in love with Lance, her brother’s friend. But fate has other plans for the couple. Cheatham has a solid cast of authentic, imperfect characters, which enhance the emotional quotient of the story line and keep the reader invested in their fate. The narrative moves at a pitch-perfect speed, the plotting is tight, and themes of love, friendship, commitment, grief, and forgiveness weave through the satisfying finale. Cheatham’s scrupulous attention to historical detail is a wonderful complement to the heartbreaking and yet heartening tale of Trudy and the men in her life, making for a gripping, winning tale. This engaging novel will hit the spot for fans of poignant historical romance.
