As a Civil War history lover, I can't explain my excitement when reading Noble Cause. This is a wonderful mix of Civil War history and a love story that proved love can endure in the harshest of circumstances. The history of this war is compelling and this book is written in a way that Jessica James portrays the events, the characters, the surroundings, and the words spoken with such eloquence to honor the North and South. She makes you feel like you are right there front and center just waiting for the next page page to turn. I could not put this novel down and neither will you. A must read.
