Surprising twists, vivid characters, and an interesting plot. I always appreciate reading a book with different perspectives from more than one character as the current voice. It was enjoyable.
SBMV4 Stars Out Of 5well-written post-Civil War romanceJune 29, 2017SBMVQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0What an intense sequel to Uncommon Protector. I didn't read the first book in the series (Loyal Heart) but the author explained the storyline enough in the second book (Uncommon Protector) that I didn't feel lost. In this third book, she does the same thing so that you can read Love Held Captive as a stand alone without having read the other two and still appreciate the stories that were told previously.
This book intertwines Devin and Ethan's stories. I was a bit surprised to read about two stories but the author does a superb job weaving the two best friends' stories and keeping the plot line tight.
Devin is a soldier through and through with much experience on the battlefield but inexperienced in love. Julianne is a broken woman with a shameful past who must forgive herself and others in order to see and accept love.
Ethan is a wealthy, charming rancher turned soldier who has a hard time assimilating back into civilian life. He carries insecurities, nightmares of the past, and doubt about who he is. Lizbeth is a downtrodden woman, broken and beaten down by the atrocities of the war. Yet she attempts to put her life back together with the resources she has and is a winning combination of strength and fragility.
And their stories are tied together by one pretty nasty villain.....
And there are cameo appearances of Robert and Thomas from the previous books, which will make the follower of this book series quite happy.
The elements of faith and prayer are evident and well-written into the story and the characters. The plot is fast-moving, and the characters are lovable. The author broached some delicate topics in the book and she did it well.
I received eARC of the book from Zondervan via NetGalley. I was not required to give a favorable review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.
