The Loyal Heart Review!

The Loyal Heart by Shelly Shepard Gray

Book Description:

The Loyal Heart (Zondervan, July 2016)

Robert came to Galveston to fulfill his promise to a dying man and look after his widow. He didn't expect to find love in the unlikeliest of places.
Robert Truax, former Second Lieutenant and Confederate officer in the Civil War, made a promise to his comrade Phillip Markham. If anything happened to Phillip, Robert would look after his beloved wife, Miranda. She was his life, his world, his everything.

After the war, Robert is left to pick up the pieces and fulfill his pact. When he arrives at Miranda's home in Galveston, Texas, things are worse than he imagined. Phillip's name has been dragged through the mud, everyone in town believes him to be a traitor, and his widow is treated as an outcast. Even more disturbing is her emotional well-being. Miranda seems hopeless, lost, and so very alone.

Robert had thought his duty would be simple. He would help Miranda as quickly as possible in order to honor a promise. But the moment Robert laid eyes on her, his plans changed. He's mesmerized by her beauty and yearns to help her in any way he can.

He makes it his duty to protect Miranda, turn her reputation around, and to find some way to help her smile again. But it doesn't prove to be an easy task---Robert knows something about Phillip that could shake Miranda to the core and alter her view of the man she thought she knew so well.

My Opinion:
Good read.  I really liked parts of this book, while others I wish were a little different!  There's a great mystery hidden within that will continue (I hope) through the series.  Many questions come up as you read about these characters and only some are answered!  So of coarse I MUST go on! :D  There were definite lulls in the pace however.  Sometimes I wished some scenes were shorter or not quite as well described and detailed.  And there was one time when I felt it was repeating a scene a little....  However the characters are highly interesting and the sub characters are even more so!  I can't wait for some of their stories and to see what happens with them!  Especially since I'm still not sure where one characters loyalty truly lies! ;)   

Songs: "Tell Your Heart to Beat Again" by Danny Gokey and "Press On" by Mandisa
Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC
