In post Civil War Nashville, Alexandra Jamison's world is not changing as quickly as she would like. Her parents want her to accept an arranged marriage after her fiance is killed in a train accident. Instead, she fulfills her dream of teaching at Fisk University, the first freedmen's college in the United States, even though it means leaving her privileged lifestyle. Meanwhile, Sy Rutledge has come to Nashville to clear his father's name as the engineer in the fatal train crash and to place a bid on building a rail line. Sy is a brash outsider who needs to learn how to finesse his way into the city's genteel high society. His tutor in Southern etiquette is Alexandra. As the two become better acquainted, they begin to build mutual respect, trust, and love for each other. VERDICT A pleasurable read for both historical fiction and romance fans, this novel doesn't neglect the harsh realities of the time, commenting on the era's racism, and featuring characters who rely on God. Following To Win Her Heart, this third series title may also be read as a stand-alone.
