    North meets South

    In Cindy Nord’s No Greater Glory, another Southern plantation has joined the famous Civil War plantations of Tara, Twelve Oaks, and now Shapinsay. To inhabit these literary plantations, there is a bevy of beautiful plantation ladies – Scarlett, Melanie and now Emaline. To consternate the ladies – Rhett, Ashley and now Reece. As a reviewer, I don’t normally contrast or compare novels to other novels as I think each one should stand alone. I am not necessarily changing my personal policy for this beautifully written book by Cindy Nord, as I believe that it does stand alone. The love story – fantastic! Fraught with desire and doubt! The research of the era - minutely perfect. Right down to the clothing worn by the characters.
    Emaline McDaniels meets the hated and feared Yankees when Col. Reece Cutteridge commandeers her magnificent plantation, Shapinsay, for his troops winter bivouac. They take over the whole plantation, including the bottom floor of the house to be used as a hospital. Knowing she cannot do anything about it, the beautiful mistress of the plantation bides her time. Soon, though, her hatred of the Yankee colonel is overshadowed by something else. What is it? Respect? Understanding? Acceptance? Another emotion more akin to love? Read Ms. Nord’s novel of the War Between the States, the Civil War or whatever nomenclature you prefer. You won’t be disappointed, I assure you.

    “Colonel Reece Cutteridge spotted the woman the instant he turned onto the lane. He informed his comrades he’d handle the situation. But just how, he didn’t quite know yet. The blazing animosity reflected in her evergreen eyes indicated she wasn’t open to hospitality. The rifle in her hands underscored that fact. Of the many plantations he’d commandeered since the beginning of the war, most were deserted or housed civilians cowering within.”
    Ms. Nord has a command of the language of the day, just as Colonel Cutteridge had command of his troops. She knows the history of the period. She writes an engrossing story of love between enemies, as opposed to fighting brother against brother.
    Born in Arizona to a family of educators, Cindy Nord moved from the southwestern desert to southwestern Indiana during her teenage years. After the birth of her two sons, she became a stay-at-home mom. At this point, she decided to try writing an historical romance with her own special twist. The result, No Greater Glory.
    I recommend this debut novel to those who love romance and historical fiction. I has both in abundance.
    She is a veteran of Civil War reenacting that started for her when she met her husband, Tom. From what I know about Civil War Reenactments, the research is thorough and the actual reenactment is true to the era. This, I believe, is what makes No Greater Glory so well written.
    A member of numerous writers groups, Cindy’s work has finaled or won countless times in chapter competitions, including the prestigious Romance Writers of America National Golden Heart Contest.

    I really liked this book. Great character development and outstanding description of the people and everyday life. You can tell Ms Nord did the required research to really bring this story to life.
    I also noticed she did the set up for her next novel. I guess we will find out how Col Cutterridges "sidekick" Jackson does with his sister Callie in Arizona.
    Ms Nord has just made my "notify me of new publications" app. Good job Cindy!

    Emotionally powerful 6 stars
    I have just finished reading the first book of Cindy Nord NO GREATER GLORY and I am still amazed and filled with emotions after reading her novel. It’s a love story with complex and engaging characters. This is a story filled with strong emotions because the words are very well written. It’s so touching that I even dropped some tears, which I generally don’t often do when reading. It’s a beautiful romance, evocative and emotionally rich with her characters. I enjoyed discovering, the story of the events, that happened in the American South during the Civil War and the fact that Ms. Nord, created a love story with beautiful characters. You will fall in love with Reece and Emaline! What happens when the heroine Emaline falls in love with the hero Reece, the enemy? I am sure that some people really lived a similar story during the war. Ms. Nord is a very talented storyteller and I hope she writes another novel. I really appreciated the research done to explain the devastating effects of war during that period. I shed some tears when Emaline read Reece’s letter. If you love a novel filled with high and strong emotions, then the story of Emaline and Reece is perfect for you. I highly recommend it. I gave an extra star, because this novel really touched me!

    I loved this book! Such a great read!
    It is rather hard to find a good (and accurate) Historical Romance that takes place during the Civil War. The facts were accurate, the love story was wonderful, and this woman, Emaline, is so strong! I can only hope that I have her strength!
    Amazing book!
