Not everything is neatly wrapped up and there are long, hard days ahead based on his mother’s reaction to Seth’s Reb fiancée but it does seem like they’ve turned a corner and that things are better “When Morning Comes.”

Synopsis

In a battle of wits and wills between a Yankee Major and a Southern belle, who will win the war?

The Civil War is over for Union Major Seth Torrance, yet he continues to fight it every night in his dreams. Though his mother expects him to take over the family munitions business, Seth can no longer bear to construct instruments of war. When he receives word that his oldest friend died on the Confederate side of one of the many battles Seth fought, his guilt deepens. He jumps at the chance to travel to Virginia and settle his friend's affairs.

Upon his arrival, Seth discovers those affairs include not only the family farm but five children, presently being watched over by a neighbor who doesn't take kindly to Northerners. Though Ella Fontaine is ready to shoot Seth on site, she refrains once she discovers his honorable intentions. To tell the truth, between keeping up the farm, caring for the children, fighting off carpetbaggers and deserters, she needs help--even if it is from a Yankee.

However the children have other ideas and set about getting rid of the Major. But Seth has fought harder battles, and he plans to win this war. To the victor goes the spoils, and Seth wouldn't mind winning the heart of Ella Fontaine.

When Morning Comes is a post-Civil War novella by New York Times Bestselling Author Lori Handeland. If you enjoyed Cold Mountain, give When Morning Comes a try!
