The Virtuous Wife, seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands: Proverbs 31:13
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17

When Timothy Fisher, his wife Hannah, and their daughter Mindy leave Pennsylvania to begin a new life in Kentucky, Hannah finds it hard to adjust. Will Christian County ever feel like home? Nothing Timothy does seems to please Hannah. Has the move from Lancaster spelled the beginning of the end? When a tragedy occurs, an inconsolable Hannah blames her husband for their loss. Timothy can barely rise beneath the weight of guilt, his wife’s hostility, and stress of his job. What dramatic second chance will God provide to heal their grief?
Once again Wanda E. Brunstertter has come across with another book in the series "Kentucky Brothers". I was so happy to receive this one from Wanda and Barbour Publishing, now I can continue with the saga of the Fisher family.
Hannah Fisher hates that she has had to move away from his home town and her family and move to Kentucky. But as the Amish believe she had to go where her husband wants to go. Alone with the accident of their little daughter Mindy, there was so much guilt. Now they are having trouble with their marriage as Hannah is so unhappy.
Timothy Fisher is also having a lot of trouble with trying to make his wife happy and his work he really does not know what to do.
As Hannah goes back home to Pennsylvania and to her parents' everywhere she looks there is a reminder of what she had lost. As the time passed and she found out she was expecting a baby she knew that she had to go back to where she belonged and to her husband. Can she forget and forgive as she continues her life.
Will Timothy and Hannah listen to God and settle their differences or will they remain apart?
I love to read these books in a series because once I start to read about a family I just want it to continue. As always Wanda knows how to make you feel me through I am in that family my-self and I just don't want to put it down until the last page, then I look and think couldn't there be at least one more page? I love the receipes that are always in these books. I have tried a few and some of them are just like this old southern woman has always made for her family.

difficult situation when she overhears plots to kill Union soldiers. Though in
her heart she feels she should share this information with Brandon, Laura fears

when Brandon's motives for pursuing her come into question, her heart is even
more conflicted. Where is God leading her?

I have had to oppunity to read a lot of Tracie Peterson's books and have loved all of them. This one is no acception. As the series "Land of the Lone Star" contunies Laura Marquardt felt herself becoming more drawn to Captain Brandon Reid. As she was wanting to educate blacks, everyone around her was against it, but Brandon was an officer over them and he was all for her doing this.
After Laura's sister married her boyfriend that was in the Confederate army, Laura was so afraid for her sister and that she may be in for more than she bargarined for. It may even cost her, her own life and Laura was really worried about this.
As we all know the "War between the States" was not a pretty site, as I live in the south and love the old plantation homes and the beautiful homes in Charleston, SC I am so proud to say that I came way after this war. I had a Great-grandfather that was lost near Charleston, he and my great-grandmother had just immigrated from Germany.
I loved this series as I love the history of it all. I want to thank Bethany House for sending me this book free for me to post a review.
