Murray Pura has woven a unique story transcending time and circumstances in The Last Waltz, Volume 2 of his Civil War Series.
Charity Davis, the wife of farmer Mitchell Davis, has been caring for the farm since he and their two sons joined the Army to fight in the Civil War. They have been gone for two years, and her loneliness has become an ache.
One day Charity sees a regiment of soldiers and runs down the long road from her house to meet them, asking if any have seen her husband Mitchell. Finally giving up, she heads back to the farm only to hear her name called. Turning, she sees her beloved Mitchell propped up on his horse between two other soldiers.
Charity is understandably upset over Mitchell’s wound, but she soon becomes happier when learning he will be able to stay overnight.
As they talk, Mitchell reads to Charity of King Hezekiah’s request of the Lord in Isaiah 38. Mitchell shares how the passage prompted him to pray for one perfect day with Charity.
So begins their extraordinary day together before Mitchell returns back to his regiment.
Murray richly portrays their love and joy in each other throughout their amazing day together. A day filled with laughter, love and foreshadowing, a day to cherish forever.
This book was given to me free of charge through The Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.

Busy with Dad today. He’s not feeling well
and has a thousand things he wants to do-all and always after 1 PM.
Kind of breaks up the day for me but is when he’s feeling his best.
Dad’s not that spry and and needs a motorized cart, loves to take hours shopping and I hate shopping! But we get it done and I love time with him so it all works out.

Barely in the low 50′s or 60′s during the day and in the high 30′s and 40′s at night. Today’s forecast called for a high of 71 but the high only hit 65-at least there was no rain. It’s been non-stop rain for almost a week.
