Cassandra Huddleston has a dilemma. Her heart still resides with her sweetheart, Frederick Adair, reported as killed in action at the close of the Civil War. Now she has a new suitor, Emerson Bryce, powerful, attractive, and dominant; he usually gets what he wants. Cassandra must decide if she can forget the man of her heart and learn to love the man offering her a future.
As she struggles with her feelings, Cassandra is faced with the possibility that Frederick’s death might have been greatly exaggerated. If that is true, will Emerson be willing to let her go?
The war had taken so many lives and Cassandra had grieved over the loss of her one true love, Frederick. Upon his unexpected return, Cassandra fainted and thought she must be going mad. Another suitor is trying to court Cassandra and has asked her to marry him. What is a girl to do when she has to choose between the man that holds her heart and the man who has presented the ring?
The characters in this story were relatable on so many levels. True love lost is a predicament that has transcended generations. The relationships between the three main characters captured my attention and kept it there.
Cassandra had promised herself that she would save her heart for the one she knew she was destined to be with.
The thought of Cassandra was the only thing that enabled Frederick to get through the war. Their love for each other and God would help them find a way to be together. Theirs was an unstoppable love that just had to overcome any and all obstacles in its way.
Emerson was a man used to getting his own way and he seemed prepared to take any steps necessary.
"Dilemma of the Heart" was an endearing, sweet and captivating read. I don't usually read historical romance but I felt myself drawn into the storyline and I simply had to turn the pages as quickly as I could. The secondary characters were amazing, and I can only hope that little sister Miranda one day gets a story of her own.
Ms. Green has done it once again. She is becoming one of my favorite authors. "Dilemma of the Heart" is a heartwarming read that I just could not put down. I am in awe of her style of writing and cannot wait to read more of her books. I strongly urge anyone who has a love of inspirational romance to pick up this book. You most certainly will not be disappointed in your choice. I give this story 5 Books for being such a wonderful and refreshing read!
