Stranger on My Land Review
Inspirational Historical Romance Novella
Sandra Merville Hart
Four stars for Sandra Merville Hart’s debut book!
What would you do if you found your defenseless enemy on your doorstep?
That’s the question Southern heroine Carrie Bishop must decide when she finds a wounded Union soldier on her family’s land. Will she care for him and risk exposing her family’s hiding place? Or will she let him die lying on the cold, hard ground of Lookout Mountain?
Her ailing aunt hates the North. The war has taken Carrie’s father away to serve in the Confederate Army, leaving her to care for a sick aunt and a younger brother. Both the Northern and Southern armies have ravaged her home, land, and supplies while she and her family hide in nearby caves, afraid every day that one side or the other will discover them. The choice she makes will impact her life in more ways than she knows, especially when she finds herself falling for Union soldier Adam Hendricks.
Sandra Merville Hart has written a sweet romance that shows the hardships and dangers Southern civilians in the mountains of Tennessee faced during the civil war. Her gentle style is easy to read and the description of Lookout Mountain and the fighting that takes place keeps you turning the pages. This novella is a quick, easy read, suitable for all ages who love romance and history.
Brava, Sandra on your debut novel!
