To Have and to Hold
July 24, 2012
After the War Between the States, and the death of her grandmother, Audrey Cunningham left Pennsylvania with her father to return to the southern home where he was raised. She hoped that the move would improve her father's declining health, and that they would be able to live in peace. Unfortunately, after they arrived on Bridal Veil Island, Georgia, Audrey and her father learned of the terrible news that they would be losing their happy home due to back taxes that they could not afford to pay. In order to save their little piece of heaven, Audrey's father allowed wealthy investors to come and build a resort on the island.
Audrey was perfectly fine with the arrangement until she learned who the foreman in charge of the project would be. Marshall Graham was the son of the man Audrey blamed for the poor health her father was now enduring. How could this man be invited, by her father of all people, to not only join but head up the building of the resort?!
Marshall finds himself drawn to this woman who, for some reason, has a grudge against him. When her father asks him to care for her on his deathbed, Marshall agrees and grants the man his dying wish. When the resort construction becomes a target of sabotage and destruction, Marshall finds his promise put to the task. Can he protect her when the danger is possibly as close to her as the boarders within her own house??
Enter the land of Post War Southern life, and feel the passion, adventure, and enjoy the various, and even comical, personalities brought to life in this wonderful book, "To Have and to Hold" It will be a permanent addition to my ever-growing collection of great reads!
Given to me by Bethany House Publishing for the purpose of review.
This is the kind of story you just want to sink into and never come out of! Love the setting, the descriptions, the whole ambiance of the read! Miller and Peterson have done their research and it's such a unique time and place in history which made it all the more fascinating.
Engaging characters took hold of my heart right from the start. Aunt Thora is a hoot and soon became a favourite. She supplied levity and surprising insights throughout the book. Audrey is a remarkable mixture of genteel backbone and Marshall has his hands full trying to change her misguided opinion of him. Audrey makes snap judgements; Marshall opinions are based on slow and steady reflection. What a contrast! It's no wonder fireworks ensue!
Add in the sinister element and a dose of suspense and you'll find yourself lost in an excellent read.
