It's 1912, the beginning of the Mexican Revolution—and the Mormon colonists must flee to the United States. When his estranged wife is mistakenly left behind, Ammon Hancock goes back to rescue her. But when he finds her, he must coax her to follow him to safety and maybe even love him again. This revolution could be the very thing that ends their war of hearts.
The violent upheaval of the 1912 Mexican revolution has forced the members of a Mormon settlement to flee across the border into New Mexico. But Ammon's estranged wife, Addie, is not among them. Her father pays Ammon to return to Mexico and find his daughter; however, conditions in the country have worsened, and Ammon is unsure if Addie is still alive. Eventually they reconnect, but the journey is not over, as the couple encounter dangers that try their faith and their marriage. VERDICT The Whitney Award-winning Kelly's (Borrowed Light; My Loving Vigil Keeping) latest work is an inspirational story of love and strength in the face of adversity that is sure to appeal to fans of Western romances and tales of romantic suspense. -- Library Journal
