Chasing the Sun

Chasing the Sun (Land of the Lone Star, # 1)Chasing the Sun by Tracie Peterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hannah Dandridge has always been the dutiful daughter, raising her young half-siblings as her own when their mother died. Leaving her beau behind when her father moved them all from Mississippi to Texas. Doing what was expected of her.

But now her father is missing, perhaps even killed, and she’s got to make some decisions on her own. While it would be easy to follow the advice of others, including her father’s law partner who wants to marry her, Hannah is more than ready to stand on her own two feet.

William Barnett was dragged into a war he didn’t believe in. Still recovering from a wound to his leg, he returns to his family’s ranch only to find it overtaken by another family. Texas has seceded from the Union and anyone who wore the blue uniforms wasn’t wanted there. But William plans to stay and fight for what is his. Which may include the spunky Hannah Dandridge living on his ranch.

Nice story that hits some sensitive points about those who fought for what they believed in, and those who didn’t. A complex look at what the Civil War meant, wrapped in a nice romance.
