I really enjoyed this historical story. It was an enjoyable read. This is my first book by this author and I am looking forward to reading more.
This story is based around the civil war. The characters were great and she did a good job on showing the characters backgrounds in this story. I loved reading about there journey.
A mystery which was very interesting to learn about. This story kept me turning the pages.
A book you sure don’t want to miss out on if you are a historical fiction Christian fan reader.
I voluntary received this book for an honest review.
