This is an excellent historical novel, full of romance, suspense and colorful scenery. Hatcher expertly weaves aspects of frontier life and the Civil War as she tells the story of Shannon Adair.
Shannon is torn between her loyalties to the South and the mysterious neighbor she grows to admire. Her minister Father encourages her to see her new neighbors with a heart of gold, but Shannon struggles with bitterness.
This novel is a beautiful story of redemption and forgiveness. Robin Lee Hatcher is a Christy award winner, and Heart of Gold is an excellent example of her writing acumen.
