"My Heart Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley"
          by: Andrea Boeshaar



Journey into the Shenandoah Valley of 1816 where...

With Very Little Left of the Family Farm, Lily May be Forced into a Loveless Marriage.

Captain McAlister “Mac” Albright has purchased land in the Shenandoah Valley. However, the land belongs to Lillyanna Laughlin—or so she erroneously thinks. Mac sets her straight and despite a poor start, the two become friends. . .if only he were financially stable to offer her more.

When Lily’s life is threatened and his whole future goes up in flames, Mac truly becomes a man without means, and Lily is forced to make the impossible choice between a loveless marriage with a man twice her age or the man who has shown her what true love could be. How can she choose between love and economic security? Her family is depending on her. Is her heart destined to break?

Journey into Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley of 1816 where a woman’s dreams and future happiness are on the line.





MY THOUGHTS:
           
 I always enjoy Andrea's books. This is such a great story. Lilly is a sweetheart and trusting, too trusting. Her two brothers are ornery but adorable. Mac becomes her neighbor but fights any attraction to her. She can't resist him, his charm or his being her knight in shining armor. Elliott, oh he made me so mad, I hoped Mac would knock his lights out. 
 I hope there is a 2nd book.  You will too when you read this book.

Blessings,
Karen Hadley
