From the back of the book: When her father disappears in war-torn Mississippi, Hannah Dandridge finds herself responsible not only for her younger siblings but also for the Texas ranch her father recently acquired. A marriage of convenience could ease her predicament...but is it the true desire of her heart?
Wounded soldier William Barnett returns home only to find out that his family's ranch has been seized. Though angered at this turn of events, he's surprised to discover that it is a beautiful young woman with amazing fortitude who is struggling to keep the place running.
Despite these circumstances, Hannah and William form an uneasy truce...and an undeniable attraction builds between them. In a land where loyalties are divided in a country ravaged by war, is there any hope that the first blush of love can survive?
My review: Chasing the Sun is the first book of the new series Land of the Lone Star by Tracie Peterson. This is another book I enjoyed so much that I had a hard time putting it down. It kept me reading till late at night. Parts of the story were a little far-fetched, but I guess that is the liberty an author has when writing a fictional story. I will definitely be looking forward to reading book two in this series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
