I love learning new things and this wonderful story is full of perspectives I never considered or wasn’t taught when learning about the Civil War and its effect on everyone involved. The author shares even more about her research at the end of the book and I really appreciated the extra history lesson. 

When a young woman is beside herself with loss and overwhelmed with her responsibilities, can she pull herself together and treat wounded soldiers of the enemy? Pearl’s father constantly reminds her of what the Bible says regarding enemies and she can’t deny one particular soldier has caught her eye. Will Josh be able to thank Pearl for all has done to care him and fellow soldiers? 

This story was fascinating and researched beautifully. The descriptions and the characters seemed very realistic and painted quite the picture. The writing was well done and the reader can’t help but want to keep reading to figure out what happens next. I loved how the author used the Psalms throughout the story as encouragement and hope for the weary souls of war. 

Highly recommend for those interested in the Civil War. 

My thanks to NetGalley for an ARC of the book. All opinions are my own. No positive review was expected.
