The Loyal Heart

The Loyal Heart is the latest book from Shelley Shephard Gray. Robert Truax, a lieutenant in the Confederate army, has been captured and relocated to a Yankee prison.  During his time in prison, Robert makes a pact with some of his fellow inmates.  If and when they are finally released, they would have each other's backs.  No matter what crisis they may encounter, they will be there for each other, no matter what!

Once Robert is released from prison and has started rebuilding his life, he suddenly finds himself traveling to Galveston, Texas to check on the widow of Phillip Markham, one of the soldiers in his prison pact who died just months before the war ended.  What Robert finds is that Miranda Markham, now a shell of a woman, is barely existing in the midst of a community who thinks that Phillip was a traitor to the confederate cause.  Robert knows that he must step in and step in fast!

Watch and see how Robert fights, along with two other members of the pact, to improve Miranda's standing in this town, by revealing that Phillip was truly honorable and a hero in the war.  You will be surprised to see where Miranda lands by the end of this tale!

I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my unbiased review
