Review: Faith by:Lyn Cote
About the Book:
The Civil War battlefield is the last place Quakeress Faith Cathwell thought she'd find herself. But with a gift for nursing, Faith seizes this opportunity to join the fight for abolition--and to search for Shiloh, a freeborn childhood friend who was kidnapped and sold south by unscrupulous slave catchers.Knowing it's much too dangerous for her to search enemy territory alone, Faith enlists the help of Colonel Devlin Knight, who is indebted to her for saving his cousin's life. A career soldier,
Dev is committed to the preservation of the Union but conflicted about freeing his own slave and confidant, who plans to enlist as soon as Dev gives him manumission papers.Blazing a trail east with the rest of Grant's army, Dev and Faith fight their personal battles--and a growing attraction to each other. When beliefs clash and passions flare, they quickly find that the only thing more dangerous than the war surrounding them is the battle within their hearts.
The Civil War was a place of unrest for not only the ones fighting in it but also for the ones living in the areas that the war took place. I know it must of not been easy for them going to bed that night thinking they were safe only to wake up to find that their entire front yard was taking over in battle. I would be terrified, myself.
I love reading novels placed in certain time periods other than at this time. It is like traveling back in time to another era. Terrifying in a way but very exhilarating too. We are introduced to Faith Cathwell in this addition to the Quaker Brides series. Faith along with a somewhat friend that she has found in Devlin Knight together wage their own battles in this very unforgiving war that claims lives left and right whether they are fighting in it or not.
Beautiful story of people drawn together by the same circumstance but are on opposing sides in more ways than one.
