Seek The Truth

by Giselle Aguiar, Award-Winning, Christian Author

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

Book Review: His Steadfast Love

This entry is part 5 of 17 in the series Reviews
His Steadfast Love

I love historical romances and His Steadfast Love by Golden Keyes Parsons met my expectations – strong characters, good story lines and it takes you deep into the drama of the American Civil War.

Amanda Belle, the daughter of a preacher in southwest Texas, falls for a Union Officer, Captain Kent Littlefield, just before the start of the Civil War in 1861.

Her Father disapproves of their relationship and forbids her from communicating with him once the war begins and leaves to serve. Her brother, Daniel, goes to fight for the South and runs into Kent on the battlefield.

Kent is later wounded and recoups at the Belles’ house as his soldiers invade the house and the whole town. As Amanda nurses him back to health, their love solidifies and they vow to marry after the war regardless of her father’s feelings. She also vowed to her mother on her deathbed that she would take care of her 3 younger sisters. Could she leave her family and her commitment to them to marry Kent? She never thought she’d marry at all!

Amanda overhears Kent speaking with one of his officers about the Union Army’s plan to occupy Texas and is torn between her loyalty to him and her loyalty to the South. Should she take that information to her uncle who’s an officer at the Confederate Army headquarters in Austin or should she not? Will what she knows ultimately hurt Kent if she tells her uncle? Was God on the side of the South or the North?

Her decision is one of the turning points of the story. With the horrors of the war, Amanda, questioned God and her faith. She had many other decisions to make that would affect not just herself, but several people.

All in all, it’s a story of love, steadfast love of God and of a man and woman.
