The blurb for this book does not do it justice. I cannot recommend this book enough.
I highly recommend this book to history lovers, it is a wonderful example of a romance in the times of the turbulent Civil War. The depth of the characters is particularly well done, I had no problem imagining each and every one from the good right down to the bad. Kudos to K. Williams on a book that has made my favorite list, I will be going back to read it again. I am sure I will discover things that I missed with the first reading. Many thanks to the author for allowing me to read and review her book, I found it to be a wondrous story that I enjoyed immensely. Five stars for Blue Honor.
Overall, I enjoyed reading Blue Honor, K. Williams did an exquisite job of transporting our imaginations back to this era and making it a worthy work of the period. Her research into the details really shows and you realize how much it matters to Williams to get it right.
Ms. Williams graphically depicts the turmoil and confusion of the Civil War: a young African American woman, discovered almost beaten to death, is nursed back to health by a Northern family; a dashing young Southern officer battles neighbors in his home state, as his ideology lies with the Union. We are shown what a truly strange war it is when countrymen battle one another: dinner with the family one minute; a return to the battlefield the next.
Because the extremes of the period are so hard to comprehend, Blue Honor’s vivid imagery is most appreciated. We are settled into a bucolic farm in Vermont one minute, and pulled into a bloody battlefield the next. Also hard to comprehend are the morays and mindsets of the period, but they are woven so gracefully into the lives of the characters that the reader appreciates the depth of their struggles and the enormity of their evolution.
This has been my second K. William’s read and both have been an absolute delight. Ms. Williams has the ability to transport the reader into her world and befriend the characters she cares so deeply about. Blue Honor is a definite two thumbs up from me!
I've just finished the first 100 pages and cannot wait to get to the next page. I highly recommend this book as someone who thoroughly enjoys K. Williams' books.
