Asa Thomas Caldwell returns from war with his lower leg gone. He is devastated and tired of being in pain. He is on the verge of suicide when Ruby barges in and asks him to do her a favor. She wants her sister with her during her pregnancy. Asa doesn’t want to go, but somehow gets pushed into it and finds himself in Winslow Georgia. Margaret Bledsoe, however, intends to go nowhere with Asa and is annoyed to see the stranger. To top things off, he is put in her position as manager at the mill and she is demoted.
This is a historical romance with a pleasant plot that keeps you interested throughout the entire book. The characters are nicely developed and you easily want to know more about each of them. The writing was well done and Asa and Margaret had great dialogue. I recommend this book to fans of historical romance.
They’re cut from different cloths…but their hearts are a perfect fit.
Migrations of the Heart, Book 2
Asa Caldwell returned from the Great War with nothing to show for it—as in nothing below his left knee. Forget about the journalism career he loved. His story is over. Done.
Yet he finds the strength to journey to Winslow, Georgia, to get Ruby Bledsoe Morson’s sister out of trouble. Before he can bring Mags Bledsoe home, though, a spate of mysterious attacks reawakens his investigative instincts.
During the war, Mags did her duty to God and country by stepping into a management role at the textile mill. Now she’s been shuffled back to the rank and file—and Asa has her hard-earned job. Not only is the infernal man doing everything wrong, her plan for revenge against the mill owner who lynched her childhood sweetheart is farther out of reach than ever.
As they clash over almost everything, Mags begins to set fire to Asa’s soul, bright enough to dim the memory of the killing fields of France. Enough to give him a new mission in life—to make her feel the same way.
Warning: Contains a wounded warrior who’s done with fighting…and one feisty woman who makes him snap to attention.
