My Heart Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley: Lily's Dilemma (My Heart Belongs) by Andrea Boeshaar
Captain McAlister “Mac” Albright has purchased land in the Shenandoah Valley. However, the land belongs to Lillyanna Laughlin—or so she erroneously thinks. Mac sets her straight about current laws, and despite a poor start, the two are becoming friends.
Then, while Mac is away on business, Lily is faced with the impossible decision of marrying a man twice her age or she and her brothers becoming homeless, as her late father gambled away their home and acreage. But with debts being called in, will Lily be forced to choose a loveless marriage just when she is discovering what true love could be? What can she possibly do? Will Mac return in time to spare Lily a lifetime of unhappiness?
About The Author
The pages flew as I read this historical story set in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, and the time is just after the Revolutionary War, and before the Civil War, 1816.
This book sure has its hero’s and villains, and I sure would have loved to have smacked Everett, he sure gave off a lot of bad bibes.
Can you imagine being on your own land, and then having a stranger show you the deed he has that he now owns your property, yes this happens here, and then you are in for quite an adventure?
I enjoyed this fast paced read, all except the ending which was surprising, but felt a bit rushed, and quite unexpected.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
