About the book:

Can Love Form Amidst Tensions of War?

During the clash between Union and Confederacy, quiet Tennessean Pearl MacFarlane is compelled to nurse both Rebel and Yankee wounded who seek refuge at her family’s farm. She is determined to remain unmoved by the Yankee cause—until she faces the silent struggle of Union soldier Joshua Wheeler, a recent amputee. The MacFarlane family fits no stereotype Joshua believed in; still he is desperate to regain his footing—as a soldier, as a man, as a Christian—in the aftermath of his debilitating injury. He will use his time behind enemy lines to gather useful intelligence for the Union—if the courageous Rebel woman will stay out of the line of danger.

Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Rebel Bride by Shannon McNear.


My review:

I can’t get enough of this series! I love how each one highlights a different period of time in American history. With there being so many Civil War stories out there it can sometimes be challenging to find a story that is original. I think that Shannon McNear did an excellent job with her story! She gives us a fresh look at what life was like for families on the home front. I hadn’t read any stories about anyone being forced to open their homes and to care for those they consider the enemy. She did a great job describing hospital life and also military details. This book was so good! I highly recommend this book!


My rating: 5-Stars-300x57
