The twists and turns kept me reading until I got to the surprising conclusion.
I could not put this book down.
This is first and foremost a historical fiction novel set in Atlanta, Georgia in 1817. The city comes to life thanks to the author’s descriptions of dress, transport, social standings, mannerisms, households and race relations. The basis of the book is the Great Fire of that same year, a real occurrence that burned down much of the city.
Mystery and romance are worked into the plot yet remain secondary. The focus of the story is describing the period, major events, social movements and attitudes held.
While Enemy Fire made for an interesting historical fiction read, the descriptions of clothes and attitudes, as well as the events leading up to other events, were sometimes a bit too detailed for me. And honestly, I was caught off guard and a touch confused by the resolution to the mystery.
Still, the novel offers much historical insight into Southern life in the 1800s, Atlanta, the Great Fire, and several important historical figures. The author deserves credit for the immense amount of research involved.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of the South, and in particular in Georgian history.
I received an ARC (pre-release review copy) in exchange for an honest review.
Her relationship with Bel the housekeeper was kind and thoughtful. Bel was another strong character that could have been written differently and not have been so wonderful. I loved the characters and the story.
The suspicious man that the women suspected of being a German spy, kept the story grounded and allowed us to see how out of tune with her inner voice Wilson was. Her inner voice was a great aspect of her personality. Just a great book. I am so glad I was able to read it for the release.
The way that the story was presented was full of suspense, humor, and realism. It was a full package. If you enjoy a book that truly takes you back in time, this would be a perfect choice.
