This book is the second in a four book series the author plans to complete dealing with episodes of a Georgia family, their friends and compatriots at the start of the Civil War. The first book, Wish is My Master, The Honor of Love, brought the two main protagonists, Amy Frey and George Yardley, together from very different backgrounds just before the start of the War but their love won out and they married. In this book, the war is now inevitable but some have strong concerns about the South seceeding from the Union and moral questions about slavery. Amy is quite attractive and intelligent and comes from a wealthy family. George comes from a poor family but exhibits excellent judgement and leadership abilities. He organizes a small Georgian militia group which is the first to engage in a battle and sustain a fatality but gains notoriety as possibly the best trained fighters in the Confederate military. The author blends the historic and fictitious so well that you actually feel that you are eavesdropping on historic dialog. The high and low events for Amy, George and their colleagues lead easily through their trials and tribulations and finish with a surprise ending that makes you look anxiously forward to the next book of the series.Was this review helpful?
