I love Karen Ranney's writing. I enjoyed reading how the relationship between Veronica and Montgomery developed. I liked how he talked in his mind to his family. I also liked that despite the fact that he and his brothers had fought on different sides of the war, it had not made them enemies. I loved his brothers and you got the feeling that they had loved him too, even after he decided to join the Union Army. Veronica had of course an advantage through her gift but she too spend more time in the past then strictly healthy. Their journey has pitfalls as any marriage has even those beginning with love and mutual respect, both missing here at the start of their marriage.
