An unnatural thunder rumbled through the air, carrying withit not thoughts of rain but of smoke and trepidation…
After being forced to use a pistol against invaders, Evelyn Mapleton is no longer the timid girl her extended family expects. The more her aunt and cousin resent her new independence, the more Evelyn is determined she’ll make her missing father proud by taking up his cause and aiding Confederate soldiers–even if she has to outmaneuver the Yankees guarding her home to do it.
Samuel Flynn’s life is consumed with two priorities: learning to become a proper guardian for the young orphans he’s adopted and obtaining his physicians license. When his final testing sends him to a Federal Army field hospital, the last thing he expects is to be entranced by a mysterious woman. But when Evelyn’s misguided exploits put her life in danger, will he risk everything he’s worked for to save a woman he thinks is his enemy?
Based on first-hand accounts from the Civil War and with a strong romantic thread, this is a tale of faith, espionage, hope, and courage historical fiction fans won’t want to miss.
I was blissfully whisked away to a bygone era on a tidal wave of literary enjoyment! Resplendent in historical details, yet not too cumbersome as to be weighty, this engaging story is sure to appeal to those who enjoy stories set during the Civil War.
I especially enjoyed the true story roots and first-hand accounts from Civil War journals. Stephenia McGee pens a story that you won’t soon forget, by breathing new life into history and inviting us to come along for the journey.
Dynamic characters that when faced with life-altering decisions will have you either cheering in approval or cringing in dismay. With deep soul searching conversations that will have you thinking how you would answer the same questions if you were there yourself.
The first quarter of the book focuses on setting the scene and building up the characters, then the action really ramps up in the last quarter and I was fully engaged in the drama! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories set in the Civil War period.
