    Pink is not what Eleanor Braddock ordered, but maybe it would soften the tempered steel of a woman who came through a
    war--and still had one to fight.

    Eleanor Braddock--plain, practical, no stunning Southern beauty--knows she will never marry. But with a dying soldier's
    last whisper, she believes her life can still have meaning and determines to find his widow. Impoverished and struggling
    to care for her ailing father, Eleanor arrives at Belmont Mansion, home of her aunt, Adelicia Acklen, the richest woman
    in America--and possibly the most demanding, as well. Adelicia insists on finding her niece a husband, but a simple act
    of kindness leads Eleanor down a far different path--building a home for destitute widows and fatherless children from
    the Civil War. While Eleanor knows her own heart, she also knows her aunt will never approve of this endeavor.

    Archduke Marcus Gottfried has come to Nashville from Austria in search of a life he determines, instead of one
    determined for him. Hiding his royal heritage, Marcus longs to combine his passion for nature with his expertise in
    architecture, but his plans to incorporate natural beauty into the design of the widows' and children's home run
    contrary to Eleanor's wishes. As work on the home draws them closer together, Marcus and Eleanor find common ground--and
    a love neither of them expects.

    But Marcus is not the man Adelicia has chosen for Eleanor, and even if he were, someone who knows his secrets is about
    to reveal them all.

    From the USA Today bestselling author Tamera Alexander comes a moving historical novel about a bold young woman drawn
    to a group of people forgotten by Nashville society--and to the one man with whom she has no business falling in love.
