My Heart Stood Still is a fictional story about one of the Sisters of Mercy Flats, which is actually another book written by Lori Copeland, a best selling author. In their many excursions and plans to gain money for a mission in Mercy Flats, the Mcdougal sisters seem obligated to help the mission they grew up in.
Set during the Civil War, the book starts off with the three sisters being carried off in different directions after an attack to their being transported to jail after selling stolen cows for money to give the mission in Mercy Flats. One sister, Anne-Marie, is taken by what seems to be an Indian man who she thought at first spoke no English.
Things turn sour when both of them land in jail and the Indian, Creed Walker, has a friend, John Quincy Adams (who claims his mother named him after the late President), who breaks them out of jail. Soon Anne-Marie learns Creed speaks English and the three now take off stealing stolen gold. What? Yes, gold coins were stolen and these three steal it!
With a handful of unfortunate events, it seems Anne-Marie is full of bad luck. But it turns out, she is what they need to get them and the gold to where they need to be.
