Overview

A Journey to Manhood During the Civil War

When Nick Siler joined the Union Army, he left a world of loving family and plans for a happy future, and entered a world of physical challenges, hardship, and the horrors of war. As Nick adjusts to his new life and finds the bonds of family replaced by the fierce loyalties and deep friendships among comrades-at-arms, he feels that he will be able to survive the Civil War. But even two years of combat cannot prepare him for the unthinkable bloodbath at Gettysburg, which will take a toll on the Union Army, and on Nick personally. Overnight, the wounding of a loved one and the loss of a close friend will force Nick to mature from a nineteen-year-old boy into a man. Nick finds love in an unexpected place while he reaffirms his loyalty to his regiment and to the North. Amidst the chaos and carnage of war, Nick will dig deep to find his own reserves of courage, compassion, and determination. But will the best of Nick’s heart and soul, and the devotion of the girl he loves, be enough to carry him through? Gone Home for Angels is a meticulously researched, deftly plotted historical novel rich with authentic detail and characters you will care about long after you have turned the final page.

    I finished ready this book today, a snowy afternoon in North Car

    I finished ready this book today, a snowy afternoon in North Carolina. I immediately was drawn into the story with the first few lines and soon came to love and care about the characters.
    I learned so much about the Civil War and the lives of the soldiers and their loved ones. My husband also read the book and could not put it down until he had finished it. Well written, well constructed and clearly well researched book but, most importantly I cared about the characters and what happened to them.

    I felt such a range of emotions. I laughed, cried and actually

    I felt such a range of emotions. I laughed, cried and actually felt pain in the pit of my stomach while living through some of the atrocities that happened in Gettysburg! There is romance,excitement and even a little about the Underground Railroad. This is a wonderfully quick read, that will keep you "captured" with every page. I rate it a 5 Star.
