A excellent story of the trials of the Civil War.
An interesting look at the Civil War through the eyes of a southerner who has turned his back on his family and region to move north and ends up in the Union army, leaving his fiance and the ex-slave, he saved from the hands of his father, to fight for what he believes in. Through fate he ends up fighting back in the area that he grew up in and after his first taste of warfare he is encouraged to become a spy. After a visit to his home plantation he is trapped and cannot return to Union lines and ends up in the Confederate Army. Always trying to get back to his side of the war while trying not to be found out as a spy. Will he survive his ordeal or will he be found out? Maybe we will find out in the second of this series. The book gives a good view of what it must have been like to live in winter quarters just trying to stay dry and warm. It also comes through that there is always good and bad people on both sides of any conflict. A very interesting look at the Civil War and I look forward to reading the continuing story as they come out. Well done.
