Product Description

Product Description

One woman stands ready to defend her newspaper . . . even if it means losing out on love

Adriane Darcy was practically raised in her father's newspaper offices. With ink in her veins, she can't imagine life without the clatter of the press and the push to be first to write the news that matters. Their Tribune is the leading paper in Louisville in 1855.

When Blake Garrett, a brash young editor from the North with a controversial new style of reporting, takes over a competing newspaper, the battle for readers gets fierce. After Adriane and Blake meet at a benefit, their surprising mutual attraction is hard to ignore. Still, Blake is the enemy, and Adriane is engaged to the son of a powerful businessman who holds the keys to the Tribune's future. Blake will stop at almost nothing to get the story--and the girl.

Set against the volatile backdrop of political and civil unrest in 1850s Louisville, this exciting story of love and loyalty will hold you in its grip until the very last page.


"I've come to expect wonderful books from Ann Gabhart, and her latest doesn't disappoint. She weaves a story that is a page-turner from beginning to end. This is one you'll highly recommend to friends."--Judith Miller, author, Daughters of Amana series


Ann H. Gabhart is the bestselling author of several novels, including Angel Sister and the Shaker novels The Outsider, The Believer, The Seeker, and The Blessed. She lives with her husband a mile from where she was born in Kentucky.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful story. Jan. 17 2015
By Joy
Format:Kindle Edition
I liked this story enormously! It had suspense, love, both for family, friends and husband. It was so well written without swear words or innuendo.
I would recommend this story to anyone including my granddaughters. This story takes you through so many twists and turns, it is hard to know who will turn out to be the villain.
Plus the love of the
Lord is not left out. Prayer is a great thing in life and Ann Gabhart used it to the benefit of this story.
I will definitely read more of her stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chapter & you'll be hooked! Feb. 29 2012
By Carla
Format:Paperback
You'll be hooked within the first chapter! I read the entire novel in 3 sittings! It's a suspenseful, gripping novel set in the 1800's dealing with 2 opposing newspapers, new immigrants, predudces, and a murderer on the loose in an otherwise calm & peaceful setting. But with opposing sides comes unrest & changes that you know must be dealt with in order to find a "calm in the storm" & follow the path that is right for you, no matter the consequences.

I absolutely *loved* this novel & hope I have a chance to read more from Ann. H. Gabhart.!! She is a very talented & inspiring writer! :) I recommend this wonderful story to anyone who loves mystery mixed along with a little bit of romance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! Feb. 28 2012
By Christina Banks TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Feisty, intelligent and completely unconventional. I liked Adriane Darcy from the first page and liked her more and more as the story progressed. The scenes and events that Ann Gabhart portrays in this book are fascinating. There is danger, intrigue and mystery around every corner. And there is always the race to see who will get the best headline for the next day's paper. The love element in the story was beautifully done, though a little surprising for Christian fiction since it went further than a lot of stories in this genre do. Still it was tasteful. I'm glad that I had an opportunity to read this book.

I recommend this book to readers of historical fiction.
