Format: Paperback
Jenny Jordan, the daughter of Colonel Jeffrey Jordan, takes a job as a sectary for the Senate Military Committee that was offered by the newly elected Abraham Lincoln, just as the Civil War begins. Soon she meets Corporal Francis "Buck" Brownell, who is part of the Zouave from New York. The Union soldier begins courting Jenny, which is somewhat of a problem because she is original from the southern state of Virginia.

Before long, she finds out that her father is a spy for the Confederate, and he asks his daughter to help him take a message to the Confederate. Jenny loves her country and Buck, but she is devoted to her father and her home state of Virginia. She must become a Confederate spy, but she hopes she can still have a future with Buck.

I received "Beloved Enemy" from the publisher in exchange for this review. At the time the book was published this was the 5oth western novel published by Al Lacy! His experience and love for the genre is shown in the details he used depicting the start of the Civil War. Even thought Jenny and Buck are the main characters, Abraham Lincoln and his family have great deal to do in this third novel in the Battles of Destiny series. I especially liked the opening chapter, which showed Colonel Elmer Ellsworth and his Pinkerton men escorting the President-elect Lincoln and his family from Springfield, Illinois to Washington D.C. by train. I didn't realize how dangerous it was for Lincoln when he was elected.

The author must have done a great deal of research to get all the historical details correct for the battle scenes, in which "Beloved Enemy" chronicles the first battle of Bull Run. The book is combination of

Format: Paperback
Beloved Enemy, written by Al Lacy, is a historical fiction novel in the Christian market that takes place in early Civil War 1861, particularly covering the Bull Run battle. Beloved Enemy is 356 pages in length, with an excerpt of the first chapter of another novel at the end.

Jenny Jordan, daughter of Mexican War hero Lieutenant Colonel Joshua Jordan, finds herself torn between the North and South in loyalty when her father, a member of the Senate Military Committee, decides to turn traitor and become a spy for the Southern cause. Jenny feels even more torn when her heart finds its way into the heart of a Zouave named Buck Brownell. When Buck and Jenny fall in love, her father demands that Buck leave her alone. Her father also suggests that she join him in becoming a spy for the Confederacy. Jenny's allegiance lies with her father and her beloved Virginia, but her heart also follows after a man whose loyalty remains with President Lincoln and the Union.

I've read some of Lacy's novels in the past, and I've always enjoyed them. I love how he is able to throw a lot of battle into his novels. It's obvious that he's interested in the historical aspect of his writing. (This book may annoy someone who has done a lot of research into Civil War history. It isn't perfect history. This is a work of fiction, and the writer takes liberties with some things, as many writers do with historical fiction.) When I sat down to begin this novel, I had no problems getting right into the "thick" of it, and once I got involved I was in it till the end!

I loved Jenny's character. However, I'd have loved to have seen more of her (but wouldn't have wanted to lose the story as sacrifice). I also loved the action centered around Buck. His humanity was developed well.

What do you do when the love for family comes in conflict your feelings for a man you love? Such is the dilemma faced by Jenny Jordan. Her father, maintains his Southern sympathies and agrees to work as a spy for the south. A member of President Lincoln's Senate Military Committee, he is part of the group planning the Northern offensive and defensive. As the north continues to lose battles, it becomes apparent that there is a spy in their midst. As this is going on, Jenny has met and fallen in love with a Union office names Buck. Being discouraged by her father for forming an attachment with Buck, Jenny can't help herself and fears what will happen when Buck learns her father is a spy.
As part of a network of young ladies recruited to carry the battle information south, the day comes when Jenny is asked to carry her first message to the Confederate troops. Caught at a Union road block, she is now under arrest and subject to being put before a firing squad. Buck, as commanding officer, now seeks to intercede with the president on her behalf. Because she was instrumental in saving the life of Tad Lincoln, the president commutes her execution.

A behind the scenes look at the Civil War, I enjoyed this book and recommend it as a book worth reading. The male Confederate spies were caught and executed. Because of an aversion to shooting the female spies, the woman responsible for recruiting the young girls with information for the Confederates was imprisoned for a while and then sent back south. She never arrived, having drowned in a boating accident on the trip.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
