My Thoughts

I read this book back in September and just now getting around to writing a well earned five star review.

I found book three to be as intriguing as the first two books in this series.

Women like Caitlin McKae took on roles they never expected to have to take on especially with no men to direct them in this mans world.  Most of the women were treated as if they were fragile, that is before their men set off to fight in the Civil War. So much to deal with on such fragile shoulders. Women like Caitlin turned out to be a very strong force on their homefronts and frontlines during the war as they tried to preserve what they had left, not just themselves but for their children and also in hopes of having a home for their sons and husbands to return home to.

We learned much about the roles men held in wartime and finally we are learning about the roles women took on during these times in our history. Women can be heroes too!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.


I received a free copy of this book from MP Newsroom and Netgalley for an honest review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.   This review is my honest opinion.
