Read an Excerpt


The more Leah sees Jeff laughing down at Lucy Driscoll, the more unhappy she became. If I can't have the prettiest dress, I'll have to do something else to get Jeff's attention.Leah was not a scheming girl. But having come to the party in such poor style, and then seeing Jeff so taken with Lucy Driscoll, she decided that she had to do something. She toyed with an idea. If he's going to pay all that much attention to Lucy, then I'm going to make him jealous. I'll make him jealous of Cecil.The thought pleased her, and she moved closer to Cecil, saying, "You do look nice in your uniform, Cecil. I think officers of the Confederacy are so dashing,
and I'm sure you're going to be a perfect hero when you get your chance."

    Fire Over Atlanta

    I wasn't a good student in High School and love to read Gilbert Morris Historical Fiction. The story lines are easy to follow and he brings the times the selection is set in to life.
