Having lost her home, parents, and sweetheart to the Civil War, Adelaide Pride agrees to accompany Mrs. Amberly, a Yankee spinster, to California as a paid companion

Zondervan House
When southern born Adelaide Pride loses her home, her parents, and the man she would have married during the Civil War, she accepts a position as a companion to a Yankee spinster at a health spa in Napa Valley, California. Did she dare to hope that her dreams of love and belonging were yet possible?
When Southern-born Adelaide Pride follows her Yankee employer to California, she faces a private civil war and re-examines her values of love and honor. Twenty-six-year-old Adelaide Pride stepped out of the horse-drawn buggy to gaze one last time at the charred remains of her childhood home. Six generations of Prides had lived and entertained there under warm Southern skies. That was before the Civil War- robbing Addie of her youth, her parents, and the man she would have married! Fortunately, an aunt and uncle had taken her in, but they could scarcely afford to feed themselves. Not wishing to remain a burden, Addie accepted a position as a companion to a Yankee spinster at a health spa in Napa Valley, California. Addie shivered with a mixture of fear and anticipation. Very soon she would journey by train to the remote land that was untouched be conflict and overflowing with financial prosperity and social opportunities. Did she dare to hope that her dreams of love and belonging were yet possible? Or would she become lost in the a world of the sick and aged, ending up a spinster like her employer, Mrs. Amberly?
