CFBA Book Review: His Steadfast Love

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
His Steadfast Love
Thomas Nelson (November 1, 2011)
Golden Keyes Parsons


Golden Keyes Parsons writes historical fiction for Thomas Nelson Publishing, and is also a popular retreat/conference speaker. Her highly acclaimed Darkness to Light Series chronicled the journey of her French Huguenot ancestors in 17th century France. Her newest novel, His Steadfast Love, a Civil War novel set in Texas, just released November 2011. Golden lives in Waco, TX, with her husband, Blaine, where they enjoy their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and are avid sports fan of their alma mater, Baylor University.


It isn't until the Civil War comes to her doorstep that Amanda Bell must choose between love and family.

It's the spring of 1861 on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Amanda never thought she would marry because of a promise she made to her dying mother, but her attraction to Captain Kent Littlefield is undeniable.

When Texas secedes from the Union, her brother Daniel aligns with the Confederate States, while Kent remains with the Union troops.

Her heart is torn between the two men she is closest to and the two sides of the conflict. Amanda prays to God for direction and support, but hears only silence. Where is God in the atrocities of war-and whose side is He on?

Amanda senses her life is at a turning point. She must trust God to deliver her family through the chaos of war with her heart and her faith intact.

If you would like to read the first chapter of His Steadfast Love, go HERE.

A very good book, especially if you enjoy reading about the South and Historical Romance!  Amanda will keep you on your toes as she fights the battle between heart and love while a war is raging close by with those she loves in danger.  You may find yourself a bit frustrated with Amanda's father and his made up mind to keep Amanda apart from Kent Littlefield, but he has his reasons...I think you'll enjoy this book.  A battle of wills and a battle between the North and South, we know who wins one of the battles, but read the book to see who wins the other!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from CFBA
