Please welcome Diane Kalas back to my blog. Diane is giving away and ebook copy of Hopeful Heart to one luck commenter so be sure to leave a comment as well as your email address so we can notify you. Let me know if you are a feedburner follower for an extra entry! 


HOPEFUL HEART is the last story in my 3-book Journey Home Series. The series is about three Civil War POWs who met in the infamous Andersonville Prison for Union soldiers and survived because of their friendship and Christian faith. Each book features one of the memorable heroes and a unique heroine that’s perfect for him.  



HOPEFUL HEART, Journey Home Series 3


An inspirational historical romance set in the West



Pennsylvania. November 1866 –Lucy Garner is a recent widow who just buried her stillborn. Grieving the loss of two people she loved the most in her world, she decides to journey out West and escape her adopted father’s stepson whose intentions strike terror into her being. She goes to work for a difficult and unprepared family, headed to Oregon by wagon train.



Missouri. November 1866 - Nat Renshaw’s boyish good looks disguise his intense personality.

Before the war, his cheating wife died and he gave up on marriage. He joined the Union Army and became a Confederate POW with enough anger to power a locomotive. These events did not improve his outlook on life. Since the war ended, he’s elected sheriff for a river town.



Oregon Trail. March 1867 – Lucy’s arresting features and gentle spirit attract Nat Renshaw’s unwanted interest as he scouts for Lucy’s wagon train. Lucy’s distrustful of Nat’s determination for romance, but ends up admiring his courage and faith in God. Can Lucy open her heart for another chance at love amid the trials of the Oregon Trail?

  4. Glad to hear people enjoy Civil War era stories. Yes, my heroine's life will pull on the heartstrings; she's the sweetest girl. The hero is a hunk with a soft heart for women and children. Not to forget his dog!

  5. A WONDERFUL SETTING IN BOTH THE CIVIL WAR TIMES & THE PEOPLE HEADING TO THE GREAT NORTH WEST ON THE OREGON TRAIL.
    I HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO GO TO THE "END OF THE TRAIL" & HEAR OF THE CHALLENGES THOSE PEOPLE ENDURED & CONQUERED.
    YOUR BOOK SOUNDS LIKE AN INTRIGUING STORY. :) ( Please excuse the CAPS just realized & too lazy to rewrite!) :)
