Sometimes I lean toward historical fiction. This book wasn't an exception. Delia has such a story! One of the few to finish a university, especially as a woman, she's home at the ripe "old" age of twenty-one. However, her entire life is about to change and go in directions she hadn't foreseen. Meeting and falling for Wyatt wasn't in that plan, or was it? She has to escape what was about to happen to her, but is this God's plan? What about these murders? Her faith and the plans God has for her life are really undergoing some major challenges.
I did suspect the killer, but I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Delia is a wonderful character and Wyatt an amazing driffter. If you have hesitation about this book, don't. It is a lovely read with everything it needs included in it, even the ending.
