White Elk is transported to Florida to join other Cheyenne braves already being held in Fort Marion. Sally Jo Harris is at the fort teaching the Indians.

Review quote

Told in split time, Love's Fortress is a captivating story of love, loss, family, and faith. Readers will find this beautifully told and well-researched story difficult to put down, intrigued by the historical as much as by the contemporary.

-- Eva Marie Everson, president of Word Weavers International & bestselling author of Dust

Love's Fortress is an engaging, heartfelt dual timeline story. Jennifer Uhlarik skillfully explores the wounds of our nation's past alongside the wounds of her characters' pasts. Romance, faith, and a satisfying ending complete this lovely novel.

-- Heidi Chiavaroli, Carol Award-winning author of Freedom's Ring and The Orchard House

This dual-timeline just might be Uhlarik's best yet! In the present day, an unexpected and unwanted inheritance leads to a journey of discovery and truth, and God's grace and love. In the past, the revelation of dark secrets leads to a place of courage in the midst of self sacrifice. By turns heart-warming and heart-wrenching, this story touches some of the deepest places of the soul.

-- Shannon McNear, 2014 RITA(R) nominee, 2021 SELAH winner, and author of Elinor and the upcoming Mary, books 1 and 2 of Daughters of the Lost Colony

Fans of dual-timeline fiction won't want to miss Jennifer Uhlarik's contribution to the multi-author Doors to the Past series. Uhlarik sheds light on a heartbreaking portion of American history and one woman's search for the truth about her estranged father, weaving together the past and present to show that things are often not what they seem. Readers will love the satisfying way these two timelines tie together.
--Amanda Cox, author of the 2021 Christy Book of the Year, The Edge of Belonging and The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery

Love's Fortress is a dual timeline that blends real history with a sweet romance, a clear faith element, and a contemporary mystery. I've read many of Jennifer Uhlarik's books, always historicals, and was very pleased with how strong her contemporary writing is. Her historical storyline is thoroughly researched and compelling, as always. There's something in this book for everyone!

--Pegg Thomas, award-winning author of Maggie's Strength

"In Love's Fortress, Jennifer Uhlarik unlocks a fascinating and tragic door into the past, escorting readers back to the journey of the Plains Indians and their treasured ledger art. As the present-day characters in this time-slip novel chase after God's providence and the truth about the past, they uncover a number of surprises along the way. A beautiful portrait of hope in the hardest of circumstances!"
--Melanie Dobson, Carol Award-winning author of Catching the Wind and Hidden Among the Stars
