    Enjoyed, but not as much as I would have liked.

    Amanda Belle falls in love with a dashing young soldier, Kent Littlefield. But then the Civil war breaks out and Amanda finds her heart divided between to two men she loves most, her brother Daniel, with the Confederate Army, and Kent with the Union. While she tries to keep her family's home in order Daniel and Kent are fighting each other on the battlefields.




    First off, Ms. Parsons is a very talented writer and I loved her style. But it wasn't until 2/3's of the way into the book did I truly become drawn into the story, and the characters. At times I felt that the story moved too fast and I would have liked to slow down a bit, as this book spans the 5 years of the war, it was understandable. I also thought that the romance moved a bit swiftly for me, though their relationship was strengthened through many letters and correspondance.




    The characters were a bit hard to get into for the first 2/3's of the book, but I eventually warmed to them. My favorite character was Washington, because he was such a gentle, faithful soul. I think that Ms. Parsons really did an amazing job of pulling off the Belle family owning slaves, because often Christian books shy away from that and I think that those relationships really made the book richer. I also liked the story of Claire and Daniel's romance, it was very sweet indeed :)




    Overall this book was a slow starter for me, I was engaged, but not as much as I would have liked to have been. Thanks :)




    Final Rating: 3.8 out of 5

    I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.

    Just Okay

    It is the year 1861 and trouble has arisen in The U.S. regarding the slave population.

    Amanda Belle and her family dwell in Texas, a southern state. After promising to raise her sisters at her mother's deathbed Amanda never dreamed of or contemplated the idea of marriage or a family of her own. Then she meets Captain Kent Littlefield and love blossoms, but they are forced to put aside their feelings as the civil war begins. Her brother, Daniel joins the Confederate army while Kent, being northern, remains with the Union. Amanda is torn between the two and the situation she finds herself in, all she can do is pray and have faith in God, how will it all turn out?

    Recently I learned about the civil war era in history class, so I was curious to see how the civil war and the events that occurred during this time would play out in this book. The story was just all right; personally for me. it lacked that special spark. The love that was portrayed between Amanda and Kent didn't seem to be as resistant and strong as they tried to depicted it. I honestly had a hard time connecting with the characters. Overall I rate this 3 stars, and if you are interested in this book because you would like to learn about the civil war, just remember this is a fiction book so the way events are played out aren't what actually occurred.
