I’d never read a book by Beverly Jenkins, but I’d seen her name plenty of times. I wish I would’ve grabbed one of her books before now. Wow! I was instantly taken with this story. The writing is crisp and kept me in my seat. I read well past my bedtime and I’m glad. The story was worth it.

The characters are well-rounded and I couldn’t get enough. Drake is a strong man and loyal. I liked how the relationship with Valinda unfolded. She’s determined and sweet, but she’s headstrong, too. I liked their pairing.

I also enjoyed how the author worked the Reconstruction era into the book. Now it wasn’t hard since that’s when it takes place, but so many authors gloss over the eras rather than showcase them. Not so with this book. I felt the hardships, the racism and struggle, but also the love between Valinda, Drake and the LeVeq family.

If you want a book that’s a great read, worthy of missing your bedtime, then this might be the one you’re looking for.
