    Abby bit her lip and shook her head. "No, Wes, we'll go together. You don't have to prove anythin' to me."

    But he had to prove it to himself. He wasn't a coward!

    He stared at her for several heartbeats. He never blamed her for breaking their engagement; he knew she deserved better than him. But this war was so uncertain, their lives all so fragile he wondered if they'd stay safe, if he'd ever see them again--Abby or the boy.




"With an economy of words, Kathy Otten has proven once again in REDEMPTION OF A CAVALIER, that a great story comes from the deep emotions of its characters. REDEMPTION OF A CAVALIER is a story that will most assuredly win your heart. I highly recommend it."

    I really enjoyed this tale, not in the least because of the fine (and accurate) historical details. Certain Confederate soldiers did indeed carry the super accurate Whitworth rifle. Military action along the Ni River in May of 1864 is well documented, and other, similar details throughout are true to the time period. You don't need to be a Civil War buff to enjoy this story, but if you are, you will not be disappointed. For all that the action is military, this is a wonderful and heartfelt romance. It is beautifully written and all of the action is intriguing.

      Another wonderful Western romance from Kathy Otten, REDEMPTION OF A CAVALIER has strong action scenes that balance the moments of tension and romance. Once again filled with detail that really anchors this story in its historical setting, it has an upbeat ending that doesn't disregard the horrors of the Civil War.

      Big themes of duty and honour, cowardice and courage, and most of all love, are skillfully encapsulated in this little tale. Kathy Otten's prose is crisp and fluid, entertaining and edifying. She could probably give classes on how to write the perfect short story.

      Well written and moving, this one's a winner

          Ms. Kathy Otten has written a compelling tale which took place in the midst of the Civil War. No one I have previously read has been able to put the reader into the middle of the war and show extensive action in so few words. I am impressed with her ability and the depth she as portrayed in her story. I reccommend it to anyone who wanta quich read that tells a gripping saga.
