Author Golden Keyes Parsons deserves much praise for the manner in which she presents the story line for "His Steadfast Love". In the beginning of the book, as with the beginning of the War Between the States, many people were uncertain as to what the conflict really entailed and how long it would last. No one could have predicted the intensity and tenure of the tragic battle and it's terrible toll. Amanda Belle is a parson's daughter, helping her widowed father to care for her younger siblings on their Texas homestead. Kent Littlefield, a career army officer from Pennsylvania, is stationed at an army post near the Belle's home. When Kent and Amanda meet at a church supper, there is an immediate attraction, and he begins to attend her father's church. Making friends with her family, and visiting them at their home, encourages Kent to pursue his courtship of Amanda. However, when Texas secedes from the Union, the federal troops are called home, and the division of hearts begins. When Amanda's father learns that Kent will be fighting for the side of the Union and against the Confederacy, he forbids Kent to correspond with Amanda. Daniel, Amanda's brother, joins the Rebel army, and the Belle household is left in turmoil. Over a year later, Amanda and Kent meet again when his troops bring a wounded Kent to the Belle home for assistance. Soon the Union soldiers commandeer the home, and it becomes Kent's military office during his recovery. Amanda is torn between her feelings for Kent, her loyalty to her family and homeland, and the fear and outrage of having the enemy under her own roof. This is a very worthy read for historical romance fans, in particular those who are intrigued by the Civil War. Many aspects of both sides of the conflict are presented in a very personal manner, and the increasing horror of the seemingly unending torment is strongly felt. The two elements which most prevail throughout the story are the love between Kent and Amanda, and the steadfast love that they gain through their heartfelt faith. I was particularly impressed with Kent, who was a strong and honorable man with very deep personal beliefs. While he and Amanda's father were at odds over their loyalties to their own causes, they both loved Amanda, and they were both men of abiding faith.

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 silences. 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.--From back cover.… (more)
