4.0 out of 5 stars A Charming Book, April 23, 2004
This review is from: Fire by Night (Refiners Fire, Book 2) (Paperback)
This novel is about two young and very different girls, Julia and Phoebe, and how their lives are affected by the Civil War. Julia is a very wealthy girl, but after a bad episode at Bull Run, Julia is determined to become a nurse. She battles through a life of unknown hardships and finds herself falling in love.
Phoebe, being left alone by her brothers, disguises herself as a man and enlists in the army. She finds herself feeling better about herself and becoming close friends with another fellow private, Ted.
The story takes twists and turns as these two young girls undergo a transformation from girl to woman. They learn that compassion, faith, determination, and hard work is the only thing that can get you anywhere in life.
I enjoyed reading this book and all of the events portrayed are extremely accurate. The story starts out with lots of action and I was instantly enthralled in the novel. But, I didn't really enjoy Phoebe's character as much I enjoyed Julia's. But overall, I think that this book was enjoyable to read, but it isn't one of my very favorites.
