Hugh Byrd, the cold, ambitious patriarch of Byrd's Creek, is used to getting what he wants. And what he wants is the Colton's prime land, and the destruction of the Colton family. What he doesn't count on is his own daughter falling in love with Rafe Colton.

Ripped apart by the Civil War, the young couple must find a way to keep their secret love alive. The end of the War should mean a joyous reconciliation, but when Rafe is accused of a terrible crime, he runs away, leaving Livvie behind once again. Will this finally break their bond, or will their love survive?

A sweeping romance set in the South, Undaunted Love is a tale of faith, hope, patience and the redemption of God's love.

My Review:  
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!  I fell in love with this book, Undaunted Love by author Jennings Wright from the first paragraph to the very last word. 

I started with angst toward Hugh Byrd to feelings of anger to betrayal to telling Mr. Byrd off all with in the very first chapter. As well as feelings of sorrow, love, and tears for the Colton family and Miss Livvie, (Mr. Byrd's daughter). Then to top it all off it is set in the south and during the time period of the Civil War. Come on!!! 

Saying that I was not able to put the book down is an absolute crazy statement!! I ate, slept, spent time with grandkids, (haha) all the while this book was in my hand on my kindle. I am afraid that if it had been paperback or hardback, it would have been so missed up that you would not be able to read any of the pages again. Why you may ask? 

Well lets just say that all the emotions that I stated in the beginning, lets just add: tears, screaming, laughing, teeth gritting, slamming my hands down on my lap, nail biting, anger at, well sometimes I wasn't even sure who or what to be mad at, then I would laugh at myself. 

Let me say right here that when an author/book and in this case Author Jennings Wright and  Undaunted Love,  makes me squirm and then dream about the book and its characters then that author has done their job. I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!!! 

If I could I would give author Jennings Wright and this book, Undaunted Love a much bigger rating.  Awesome amazing wonderful clean read!!!  Diffidently A MUST READ!!! 

So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 

Five Clock Rating!!!  
Disclosure: I did receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But these opinions are my own and yours may differ. 

About the Author: 

Born and raised in Rockledge, Florida, Jennings spent her early years reading anything she could get her hands on, when she wasn't spending time in and on the water. She won a prize in the 6th grade for her science fiction stories.

Jennings attended the University of the South and the University of Tampa, graduating with a B.A. in Political Science, and almost enough credits for B.A.s in both English and History. She spent time over the years doing various kinds of script doctoring, business writing, editing, and teaching writing, but mostly having and raising her family, homeschooling her children, owning and running a business with her husband, and starting a non-profit to Uganda.

Thanks to a crazy idea called NaNoWriMo Jennings got back into creative writing in 2011 and hasn't stopped since. She's written four novels and a screenplay in less than a year, with more ideas on the drawing board. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, also a writer, and two children, and travels extensively.
