Jud Morgan's father died for Texas' freedom so when German immigrants try to colonize a New Germany in Texas, he takes a stand against them.
After Wande Fleischer's fiance abandons her, the young fraulein determines to make a new life for herself in Texas. As much as Jud dislikes the German invasion, he can't help admiring Wande. Will vengeance burn and destroy more than Wande's home, or will the rancher put aside his prejudice and forge a new future?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Wande's story. When heartbreak comes once and again, instead of letting it make her bitter, she draws closer to the Lord and keeps a sweet spirit. In the face of Jud's prejudice, she still befriends him and his family (who aren't prejudiced, by the way) building close friendships between the families. This draws Jud to her as he fights to overcome his hatred of the Germans. A very sweet story, well told. I can't wait to read more about the Morgan family in the books to come!
I was sent this book by Moody Publishing to read and review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
