The One Who Waits For Me by Lori Copeland
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
(August 1, 2011)
Bestselling author Lori Copeland (Walker’s Wedding and Outlaw’s Bride) sets her brand-new story in North Carolina the months after the Civil War. In the midst of chaos, there is also a sense of possibility and the hope of love when:
Sisters Beth and Joanie run from a vindictive uncle toward healing
Trella, a pregnant young slave, leaves a plantation for freedom
Gray Eagle, a Cherokee military scout, finds refuge for the young women
Captain Pierce, a quiet man of faith, heads for a plot of land and a new life
Samuel, a black soldier, longs to follow his father’s preaching legacy
The intersecting lives and tales of these engaging characters and those they meet along the way create an uplifting story of tested faith, growing seeds of love, and the challenge and gift of believing God’s promise of a future.
Lori Copeland has written a good, clean, fun read with The One Who Waits For Me. I can't say that it is on par with Gone With The Wind, but it is an entertaining Civil War/old South novel. It is a spiritual adventure book which reminds us that God has a plan for our lives--a plan that we may not see at the moment.
