I love this book Dec 3, 2005
Word of Honnor is one of the best Civil War books that I have ever read. Salina is like every teenager girl her story just takes place in the 1800s. I really enjoyed reading a book that was so full of adventure and excitment.
Excellent Nov 16, 2005
The books in this series are absolutely incredible. The characters are very well developed, they are historically rich, and they are easy and fun to read. I read them until the covers were falling apart and I had parts of them memorized. I highly recommend them to anyone - even those who don't usually enjoy reading.
Well written, but unrealistic Aug 28, 2003
I must say first, I enjoyed reading this book and could not put it down! The mystery and suspense was quite intriguing. If you will permit me to say so, although this book fulfills the reader's desire for thrill and excitement, it is the most unrealistic Civil War novel that I have ever read.
In particular, the characters Salina Hastings and Jeremy Barnes. Seemingly they are able to go everywhere and do everything, but traveling in those days was a major ordeal, and nothing to be planned in a few short hours. They are portrayed as entirely perfect in words and appearence, yet their actions and composure suit the modern public school teenager, not the gentle, modest character which was truly present in those days.
I found the historical events very accurate, though Salina's involvement was quite extraordinary for a girl of sixteen.
Great book! May 7, 2003
I enjoyed this book very much. The mystery/intrigue was well written and believable. It's a fun easy read..
