Elizabeth Clouston may live in Tennessee, but her loyalties lie with the North during the War Between the States. However, when the Carnton home at which she lives becomes a Confederate field hospital, she finds herself working alongside a surgeon treating men fighting for the Southern Cause. She makes a promise to wounded Captain Jones as she is caring for him, earning his respect and perhaps something more. But Elizabeth is pledged to another and she soon finds her heart struggling to choose.
This novel, true to Tamera Alexander’s form, is rich and deep. This particular story is interestingly based on real letters. The characters are told so beautifully that as a reader you cannot help but fall in love with them and begin to feel their joys and their struggles. It is easy to immerse yourself in the vividly detailed historical setting. And the spiritual truths are interwoven, relatable, and meaningful. I really did enjoy this story and cannot wait for more from this skilled storyteller!
I received an e-copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
