Hopefully, that tells you something about this book. I actually could not read it fast enough. The plot is heartfelt and the story so well written that I had to know what would happen before I got there. And the characters in this book are amazing! A perfect blend of fictional and real-life Civil War heroes acting this story out on their stage. At times the book felt like it went by quickly, so much was happening. Other times a bit more slowly—but I think that was me being a reader who just wanted to savor a great book. With that said, I can’t recommend the book highly enough.
At the end, I guess this will be one of those books that I can’t gush enough about, despite struggling at first. If you don’t know, this is the second book of the series. The first has been on my reading list, and I hoped to get to it before this one. That didn’t happen, so I jumped in. This is a direct continuation, so while you could probably do as I did, and start reading this one, I think you’ll regret it. I certainly am. There are plenty of spoilers of the first book in this one and I think I wouldn’t have been more interested in the story to begin with had I started with the first. And, judging by how this book ends, I am pretty confident another book will be on the way. So you have time to read these first two. And they are well worth it.

Too Deep for Words: A Civil War Novel by Andrea Boeshaar, © 2017
Shenandoah Valley Saga, Book Two
So many thoughts. To be separated from family ~ far from home with the war between them, not only with distance but with sides drawn. And the remains of my family? My sister, Carrie Ann, married to a Union officer. We have seen the remnants of war continue with the loss of our mother and younger sister.
Rescued, I am rescued! A man enters the Inn and asks for Miss Margaret Bell. That is me!! At first, I am chagrined wondering if it is in recouping funds he has lost, but no! It is Carrie's husband and he has made a way of escape for me! Release from the man who was behind the loss of all those held dear to me. Well, maybe Carrie Ann and I did have a few struggles with each other, bossy as she can be to me.
Home. Will she accept me? Being married and all, Carrie may have continued on in her life, wanting no interference from me. But, Peyton said to come, she would be amiss to be left behind.
Known long before the war between the states, growing up together as children, choosing opposite sides caused the dilemma for whom to trust. Could they be taken at their word, or by their actions? Reading the series in order will give you a fuller aspect in the continuation of history and its events.
Peyton Collier and Elijah "Eli" Kent are in such a situation as best friends, having gone to academy school together. As their families become intertwined, how much can be shared?
Missing during battle and reported dead, Eli must put into place the instructions Peyton had assigned him. Protecting Carrie Ann and her sister Margaret, and Peyt's Aunt Ruth was foremost.
The trials of war on both sides were severe. With the temperature and lack of supplies, exhaustion was also a foe. Homes when available were used for immediate hospitals of the wounded ~ both for their men and prisoners.
During the war there was a lack of hospital space. Douglas Hospital in Washington DC set up tents for the overflow of the wounded. --author Andrea Boeshaar
The story ends needing the next page beginning book 3, There is a Season. Letters and descriptions of daily happenings and activities are vivid. Characters adjust within the circumstances circulating socially, politically, and everyday business necessary to carry them forward.
I would like to know more about Rebekah Kercheval, a character in the background, and hope she will be expanded in the next story.

I thought this was an interesting story to follow up the first novel. The author does keep you guessing all throughout the book as to what has happened to Colonel Peyton Collier. I appreciated all the research Andrea Boeshaar put into writing this novel. The story transports the reader to another time and gives them a glimpse of our nation's past history. This was one of those books that was hard to put down especially not knowing how things would end, and it had me racing to the end. The way this book ended definitely leads to another book, and I'm looking forward to reading the third book in this series, There is a Season, which will be released in 2018. If you're looking for a fun historical series to start, pick up this new series by Andrea Boeshaar. These books are fun and captivating.
