Once again Jocelyn has written a poignant and powerful novel of which I loved every minute! It boggles my mind how she is able to connect so many people in so many places without it ever seeming far-fetched. I love how many historical facts she packs in her book! She weaves it into her characters lives it in such a way that you hardly even notice that you are getting a thorough history lesson, and that is awesome!
Caitlyn and Noah were great characters. Their romance wasn't a typical one and they were actually rarely together throughout the book. It was more of a deep admiration that grew into love even as they were separated and only able to communicate through letters. But despite that, their connection felt very real and plausible. I was very impressed with Caitlyn's resourcefulness, sacrifice, and patience as she ran Noah's house in his absence, a lesser woman would have crumbled! And I think the author did a fantastic job in capturing the emotions in Noah that I'm sure a lot of men faced; being a southerner and feeling the need to fight for the south while at the same time not fully agreeing with what they were fighting for. That would be such a hard decision to make.
I was so happy that we got to see more of Ruby's story! Her and Edward's romance was so sweet! There were some rough patches along the way but I loved how it all worked out.
There was so much packed into this book and it was all beautiful! If you enjoy civil war era stories I definitely recommend this series!
