Driven by a guilty conscience, Carrie Ann Bell Collier will do anything to keep Peyton, her wounded husband, alive. She hears of a nurse who promises miracles if she is permitted to administer her secret medicine made from the seeds of her beloved poppies she obtained overseas. Nurse Hannah Emory hopes to obtain a patent for the brew and become famous among medical scholars. Carrie agrees to the treatments. Confederate Lieutenant Colonel Elijah Kent maintains his responsibilities to the Colliers as Peyton’s executive of his estate, as Peyton is unable to recall the last two years of his life. Eli cannot help but pursue Carrie, even though he gave his word he wouldn’t. She is great with child, but Eli thinks she is beautiful and finds her company more engaging each time he sees her. His monthly inspection of the Colliers’ accounting brings him to Piccadilly Place frequently, and Eli begins to slowly cave to temptation. As Peyton convalesces, Carrie writes to him. Knowing of his memory loss, she describes their meeting, their swift wedding, and loving relationship. But a scheming Nurse Emory intercepts Carrie’s letters, and Peyton remains unaware of his marriage. Needing Hannah’s medicine—even craving it, Peyton agrees to marry her.
Until he learns the truth from his pal, Eli–
There is a season continues the story of Carrie. Its the end of the Civil war and she has recently been reunited with her presumed dead husband, Payton. Only Payton is wounded and under the special care of a nurse with a medicine said to cure. As the Civil war draws to a close, Carrie and her family must survive the changes. I thought this was an interesting book. It started of a a little slow but soon I had to find out what happened. Series are fun because we can find out more of their story and what happened to Carrie and liked reading about what happened to them. I thought the characters were well written and believable. I liked most of them especially Carrie! There were a couple who I wish I could have punched. I didn’t like the nurse Hannah at all. I enjoyed learning more about struggles and joys experienced at the end of the war.
I liked how Andrea Boeshaar weaves the Lord’s theurh through out this story.
I enjoyed this story and recommend it to my family and friends.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
