Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Douglas Benton is an officer in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Sarah Duvall is a Virginian and the widow of a Union officer. She is known to be no friend to the rebel army. When the two meet in the presence of General Lee, Benton learns a secret—Duvall is a crucial spy in the war effort and partially responsible for his current command. Benton is put in the difficult position of protecting her, while not surrendering her secret. The two grow close in the process, eventually falling in love. But when the Union Army discovers her secret, both Duvall and Benton's love and lives are put at risk. James has a skillful grasp of the more romanticized parts of the Civil War, but tends to gloss over its less glamorous aspects, drawing Benton and Duvall with broad strokes that will make them appealing to readers. At times, the plot struggles with contrivance, but readers who are engaged with the characters and their romance will find a lot to like.

Review

Jessica James has the unique ability to channel Margaret Mitchell to create a timeless classic of love and war. Her previous novels, Shades of Gray and Noble Cause were 5-stars as well (really 10 stars, but Amazon only lets me go up to five). She is one of those authors that is able to transport you to a different time and place and leave you breathless with delight with the depth of her research, well-drawn characters, and a love story that you will want for your own. --Tiffany Kohler

There are some books that I read and enjoy and then forget. This is a novel that I will read over many times and never forget. --Texgal, Amazon

A true page turner~ I couldn't put this book down. Jessica James writes another amazing and beautifully written novel. Her books never disappoint. --Stacy Woodson
