Loved It!
5 stars By Kamya, Nov 18 2016
This novel was my introduction to Serena Miller's Christian historical fiction and set me on the path to find more of her novels.  The two other books in this series certainly didn't disappoint - dare I say I enjoyed "Under a Blackberry Moon" and 'A Promise to Love" even more.

Serena's prose is beautiful, the detail and setting rich and her characters deep, strong and inspiring.  One of those rare times I feel loss at the end of the story because I have gotten to know the characters well.
