Publisher's Summary

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 thought his duty would be simple. He would help Miranda as quickly as possible in order to honor a promise. But the moment Robert lays eyes on her, his plans change. 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 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.

Different than what I expected

maybe it's my fault, because I came with preset expectations for this book, but sadly they were not fully met The story is about Robert who is a soldier but now he is a man in a mission, he has to look after his dead friend's wife and make sure she is ok .. but when he meets her he finds out that she is more than he thought .. and in greater danger than he expected, because she is receiving threatening letters and she doesn't know who is the sender the story had the potential to be amazing .. but I felt bored in the majority of it  The narrator was Ok .. but I hope she gets changed for the next book
