Sarah Spalding’s life was full of strife, torture, rape, scarred from the inside out, and surviving an unbelievably harsh life as a woman during the Civil War. She is leaving her past behind in Virginia as she heads for uncharted territory.
Whitman Kendrick has spent the last fifteen years as a soldier. Ready to settle down, he is on the train bound for Kansas City to meet his intended bride, a woman he has never even met.
Sarah notices the Yankee right away, being that he is in the same compartment as she and her obnoxious spinster companion. Whit knows he should feel nothing but revulsion toward the woman with the sharp and vile tongue, but instead finds himself extremely attracted to her. When Sarah fires her companion, the sexy stranger steps in to help, using his calloused hands to soothe both the knotted muscles on her bad leg and other parts that ache for a man’s touch. Soon both are not only fighting their budding love for each other, they are fighting for their lives as murder and mayhem play havoc with their journey to their new beginnings.
The Stranger’s Secrets is such an amazing tale of survival and love! Beth Williamson takes a book and adds her personal touch, bringing the characters and scenes to life. Sarah is so strong that even with her debilitating injury it made me realize I would want her in my corner if I needed someone to defend me. Whitman is a man who struggles to find out who he is and where he fits in the world, making the reader sympathize and fall for the gentle man. This story has all the great qualities of a spectacular read; the emotional upheavals, fighting to survive, humor and sarcastic characters, passion-filled sex scenes full of tantalizing details, and a murder mystery that will you have you falling in love with the tale as well as the characters themselves.
