This is the third and final book in the Quaker Brides series. This book follows, Honor and Blessing. At the time of my reviewing this novel I wasn't aware it was a part of a series, so one could very well read this as a stand alone and walk away blessed just as I have done.
The year is 1858. The Civil War is beckoning all on either side to war. The Western Theater is where Lyn takes us on a journey into the land of slavery, battles, and the ugliness of gunfire. No family is safe from this war. All hearts are forever changed. There is one who is ready to take a stance and that is Faith. She is strong and compassionate. A woman for all to admire. A character portrayed with great detail and passion.
Lyn Cote writes with such depth and inspiration. This is a story that will go deep and reach into your gut as Lyn allows us to glimpse into the lives of those who are living this war in every aspect. If you love historical fiction you will be absorbed into another time and place as you read these penned words that take us to the front lines of the battlefield.
This is my first book to read penned by Lyn Cote. She is a writer to admire. I now hope to go back and read the first two novels in this series. This would be a great read for any age, especially young girls with a love of reading. Those who love nursing and the Civil War will enjoy this novel. It flows easily and the characters are portrayed brilliantly. One can only imagine what life is like for the characters as well as the book is penned. One can see that this is a novel that took great research to give the reader such valued detail.
This would be a great addition to any library. This is one I will reflect on for some time to come. These pages are filled with such heart and emotion. Thank you, Lyn for gifting us with such a great and unforgettable read.
