Publisher's Description

Can Sallie and Manfred overcome the distance that the war has put between them and find love?
 
In April 1865, the day following the surrender at Appomattox, Manfred McDaniel Whiteman and his brother, Edward, are released in an exchange of prisoners. They are given a few provisions, and they begin a long journey to their home in Bayou Sara, Louisiana.
 
At home Sallie Dyer is waiting word of her beloved Manfred. Though just a young girl when Manfred left, Sallie has grown into a caring young woman who is determined to wait for her love--despite her father’s worries that she is wasting her life on someone who may never come home.
 
On their journey Manfred and his brother encounter storms and thieves and are even thrown in jail. Will he make the journey home before someone else claims Sallie’s hand?

    It is April of 1885 and the War Between the States is over. Manfred and Edwin Whiteman are exchanged as prisoners as war for Union soldiers, and are now heading to their hometown of Bayou Sara, Louisiana. But the journey promises to be long, hard, and arduous, and that's only if nothing goes wrong along the way. Manfred wants to return the kindness shown by strangers as they go homeward, and is willing to be delayed a day or two in order to honor his promise. But when keeping his word means being waylaid by thieves and being thrown in jail, will he ever get home to his girl?

    Sallie Dyer is awaiting word of her dearest Manfred. She doesn't even know if he's alive, because mail has been unreliable and with a war on, no more can be expected. She is determined to wait his return no matter how long it takes, even though her father is equally determined to let other suitors vie for her hand. When three of Manfred's brothers return, that still leaves Manfred and Edwin missing. Are they buried in some unmarked grave far, far away from home? Or are they, even now, returning home to them?

    It was fun to see Edwin grow from an angry, taciturn young man into a mature, responsible man that his family could be proud of. I know Manfred and Sallie's story was the main focus of the story, but the side stories of their families and friends really stood out to me. Ultimately, all their experiences in the war change their lives forever, and they all learn lessons about life, love and what it means to come back as a country, as family, and as a community. I was very impressed by Rogers's sweet and poignant portrayal of what times were like after the Civil War; the people, their strength, but most of all their faith in the same God that allowed a country to be divided. This was the best post Civil War novel I have ever read.

    Series The Homeward Journey-book #1 "Love Stays True" by Martha Rogers

    Can Sallie and Manfred overcome the distance that the war has put between them and find Love?

    This question looms as we read the story...Sallie waiting day after day not knowing if Manfred is alive or dead.

    Manfred along with his brother Edwin are in a prisoner of war camp being treated worse then animals, the only good spot in their dismal days with meager food is one soldier has a moment of kindness and returns their Bibles to those that had them. I believe that the faith of these men helped them to get through unspeakable conditions in war times.

    The war finally ends after many long years and many lives gone, many disabled.

    Manfred and Edwin start their long journey home by foot and it is amazing to read of the many kind and helpful folks they find along the way. It had been a trying time for all yet they would offer food and lodging thus restoring the mens faith in their fellow men. Both young men wanted to repay kindness and helped along the way. Hearts that could have been bitter filled with love....

    On the homefront families had been torn apart, homes lost, fear at every corner as folks tried to live their lives and rebuild what once they had. Sallie stays true to her feelings for Manfred and though she hears little from him, believes he will return and she will wait for that day.

    Martha told a wonderful story about life after the Civil war of folks waiting at home and of the soldiers returning.

    I was given this book by The Booketeria to read and review...I have enjoyed reading it.

    Though historic romance is not something I have read a lot of I did really enjoy reading this book. In fact, would love to read the next one in this series. I did learn a lot about what happened after the Civil War in the South, which is when this story is set.

    The goal for Sallie and Manfred was that they make their way back to each other, physically, emotionally and spiritually as quickly as possible. Manfred and his broth Edwin were in prison at Point Lookout, Maryland. When the war ended they started making their way back to Louisiana. The trek that they took was prayed over by Manfred each step of the way. Good things and bad things happened, but Manfred leaned on God to be able to make the right choices and get home. Sallie had her share of bad things happen at their home so her family was living with the grandparents, not far from Manfred and Edwin's family. Sallie is afraid Manfred will not forgive her for what she did.

    Sallie's family were not all convinced that Manfred and Edwin would be coming home. They had not heard from them for quite a while. Because of this decisions were being made for Sallie that she did not agree with, but she had to honor her father.

    There was lots of places I had a ball reading, some of it sad, some happy. There were times I could have shed a tear with Sallie, and times when I could laugh with Manfred and Edwin on their trip home. Manfred's faith was really great to see in a man, he had no doubt they would get home and he would get to ask Sallie to marry him. And I felt really close to Sallie with all her fear and indecision, and joy and life.

    I would recommend this book to any who love historical romance. It was a fun read, flowing very well.

    I have just finished this awesome book, and glad there is another to come! We meet real people in a real war, the Civil War. A war fought in our country, we meet it with real faces and trials.

    Two young people who have been torn apart by the North and South...a fight that the principals of which neither agree, except for the right of States to control their own destiny, and not the Federal Government. Both are worried that the other has forgotten them. Manfred Whitman who is in a Northern prison when the book opens, and Sallie Dryer who is living with the reality of her actions during Northern occupation in Louisiana.

    Manfred and his brother Edward were captured in the battle of Nashville, and have spent months without being able to notify their loved ones. When they are released, they can't wait to get home, but it is a long way from Point Lookout, Maryland to St Francisville, Louisiana. To begin with they are traveling on foot, can't even imagine. We journey with them to their unknown future. We meet some very interesting a wonderful people, also some very scary, but God really seems to have them in his hands.

    Where Sallie faith seems to have wavered, so much happens to try and bring her back in the fold. Manfred on the other hand has held on to his God, and what happens to Edward and him on their way is so heart warming. Love it!! They happen into the right place at the right time.

    Don't miss this one!!

    I received this book through First Wildcard Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
