adventure Feb 14, 2010
the adventure was prominent in this christian romance, and the plot demands the reader's whole attention in order to follow it. there is the romantic element of course and the christian theme. i found this book to be extremely well-written and well-researched. i learned a lot.
Good read Jun 28, 2009
This was a good read. It shows about a young woman, Camilla and her determination to make a positive difference in war-time. What was unique about her was that she did not allow the popular opinions at the time to influence her decisions but went with the guidane of the Holy Spirit guidance and her heart. What I liked about the hero was his willingness to support and protect her even though he did not agree with her decisions at times. What would have made it perfect for me though was that I thought Camilla should have recognised that Gabriel loved her and could have been a bit more "feminine" about accepting his love. The actual romance could have been a bit more romantic.
Civil War Romance, adventure, spies and all Dec 11, 2008
If you like to read about the Civil War but want to read about how it affected people themselves, this is a very good book for you. You feel like you are walking through this book with Gabriel and Camilla. You understand so much more about how people would have felt during that era of history with family members fighting against other family members. The underground railroad and issues over slavery are shown from how it affected the people. You read about spies, building of a sub, war, and love. All through this book I felt like I was walking right along side the people. There is faith everywhere you look in the book too. Yet in the end you will find surprises about who is giving orders to Union spies. When the book came to the close, I wanted it to just keep on going.
