Love Stays True (The Homeward Journey)

By Martha Rogers


Can Sallie and Manfred overcome the distance that the war has put between them and find love?   In April 1865, the day following the surrender at Appomattox, Manfred McDaniel Whiteman and his brother, Edward, are released in an exchange of prisoners. They are given a few provisions, and they begin a long journey to their home in Bayou Sara, Louisiana.   At home Sallie Dyer is waiting word of her beloved Manfred. Though just a young girl when Manfred left, Sallie has grown into a caring young woman who is determined to wait for her love —despite her father’s worries that she is wasting her life on someone who may never come home. On their journey Manfred and his brother encounter storms and thieves and are even thrown in jail. Will he make the journey home before someone else claims Sallie’s hand?  

Book Takeaway:

True love outlasts all obstacles and distance

Why the author wrote this book:

Mostly to recreate the love story of my great-grandparents in 1865 for my family. It evolved into this novel of perseverance and love.
