Extremely well written and the characters came to life. The spiritual message was woven into the storyline seamlessly and was so uplifting.
I'll admit that I put off reading these books since they are categorized as YA. The only reason I decided to read them is because I have read everything else by this author and wanted more. I'm so thankful, as I devoured them. I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires is so touching and realistic, showing the tragedy of war as well as how important friendship and faith are.
I highly recommend this book as well as William Henry is a Fine Name to anyone that enjoys the Civil War era and accurate historical fiction.
However, putting these things aside, the book was overall a great read.
(This review is, by the way, before I read the book description. I read this book right after I finished William Henry is a Fine Name.)
(SPOILER) Initially, I was disappointed that Robert didn't end up rescuing slaves since the first book circulated around this idea (even referring to him as Moses and being a deliverer). Also, Robert's dreams led me to believe that Robert would eventually be doing the same thing as his father. The story, however, ended up being about an 18 year old boy and his journey to find his family and relatives while the war goes on. Rather than slavery, the story revolved more on the impact the war caused in the lives of many people. At first, I thought the plot was too simple but as the story progresses, I noticed that in some ways, my expectations about Robert's big role were met. Robert DID find his calling, and I wouldn't have known had Jeremiah not mentioned it.
Still, I would say that it's a great book. I enjoyed the new characters introduced in this book as well as the author's insertion of Biblical applications in Robert's life.
I do wish that the author developed the love between Emily and Robert. I'm not even entirely sure why they like each other. Is it simply because they were childhood friends? For Emily, I think it's admiration for what Robert has done for Jeremiah, but as for Robert... it's not clear. Anyway, I just thought it might've made the story more interesting.
We can only hope that this author blesses us with another book, soon.
