Grits and Glory by Haley Whitehall

During the Civil War, Peter Warren, a tender-hearted, disowned Southern gentleman, spies for the Union Army in Fredericksburg, Virginia�a region where he is well-known. Plagued by memories of his father�s brutality on their plantation, he has vivid recollections which could betray his identity with a slip of the lip. He fears being recognized as an Underground Railroad conductor since posters blanket the South with his picture. Once he is trapped on the Confederate side of the frozen Rappahannock, will Peter choose to save his skin or fulfill his duty?

About the Author

Since the age of four, Haley Whitehall always wanted to be a writer. She went to Central Washington University and majored in her other favorite subject: history. She has social studies and library endorsements. Now she pairs her two passions into writing historical fiction set in the nineteenth century U.S. She writes "out of the box" stories. Forgotten history and the complexities of human nature inspire her characters and plots. Mark Twain serves as her writing mentor. Haley loves coffee a little too much. Perhaps that is why she is a night owl. Cats, a good book, and a view of the mountains make her happy. She blogs at or you can follow her on Twitter @HaleyWhitehall.

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.
