Description

It isn’t until the Civil War comes to her doorstep that Amanda Bell must choose between love and family.

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 silence. 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.

Reading Group Guide

  1. Amanda's love and loyalty to her Southern family were tested by her love for her Union officer sweetheart. She was torn between the two. In your opinion, which one--her family or her sweetheart--should have commanded her first priority? Do you think she handled the dichotomy well? Why or why not?
     
  2. Prior to the war, Amanda's faith was in word only. She was riding on the coattails of her father's faith, but it wasn't enough. She had gone to church all her life, but she didn't really believe that God was to be trusted because He allowed the trauma and atrocities of war. Then she came to the end of herself and realized that God is faithful and she could trust Him. Have you had a similar journey? Share it with the group.
     
  3. What were your feelings when Amanda decided to take information of the Red River invasion to her Confederate colonel uncle? Did you think she was being disloyal to Kent?
