Overview

It was November 1863, and Captain David Reynolds of the Seventeenth Pennsylvania Cavalry was fully prepared to die. Someone had once told him that dying was quite painless. He didn’t believe it, though he secretly hoped it was true as he and his men prepared to ride into chaos and horror. The battle of Mine Run had begun.

Jennifer Winston could hear the booming sounds of cannon fire miles away from her Virginia home. She knew that the war had begun two years ago but had been insulated from it all by her father. Little did she know that her life was about to irrevocably change, and she would be tested to the limits of her courage and endurance for a man—a man who was the enemy.

    This is the first of Diane Wylie's I had read and I was instantl

    This is the first of Diane Wylie's I had read and I was instantly hooked. I love the civil war and she has a great ability to bring it to life right on the pages of the book. Jenny's Passion is what one woman and what one man will do for love. It isn't a prefect fantasy that just worked from the beginning, it was just like real life, especially in a nation divided by an awful war, and through the entire story you are routing for these two to find a way to each other again. It is really well researched and the story is a look into life during the Civil War. Diane Wylie never disappoints and if you love this one, check out Lila's Vow which follows another two in their lives and Jenny and David are fighting for theirs.

    Capitvating Civil War Romance

    A much as I enjoyed Wylie¿s Secrets and Sacrifices, and I did, I liked her Jenny¿s Passion even more.<BR/><BR/>In 1863 Virginia, in the midst of the Civil War, Union Cavalry Captain David Reynolds is shot during the battle of Mine Run. He awakens five miles away in a cabin under the tender care of Southern belle, Jennifer Winston. As Jenny heals his battered body, she helps him remember the gentler man he was before the war. Despite the differences in their lives, the two connect on an elemental level and fall in love. But it is dangerous for David to stay in the slave quarters at Pleasant Run. If he¿s found, Jenny and her family would be hung as traitors, and David would be imprisoned as a deserter by the North or a spy by the South. <BR/><BR/>He begs Jenny to marry him and hide in the comparative safety of the North, but she regretfully says no. A union of that type would put both them and their families in greater danger. There love remains strong even as David follows his devotion to the Northern cause and rejoins his unit. Jenny stays behind, struggling to survive as the slaves flee and her father is arrested. But the caprice of war brings David and Jenny back together. <BR/><BR/>Jenny¿s Passion is a heartfelt tale of love, sacrifice, and honor between should-be-enemies in our nation¿s bloodiest war. Wylie skillfully melds the horror and despair of war with the joy and hope of new love. She brings historical settings to life. I look forward to reading more by this author.
