A Thousand Shall Fall Review Part 1!!!!!

A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar

Book Description:
A Thousand Shall Fall: A Civil War Novel (Kregel, November 2015)

A story of love, hope, and healing set in the midst of the Civil War

Nineteen-year-old Carrie Ann Bell is independent and spirited. The only thing she really fears are the Union soldiers fighting against her Confederate friends. When her youngest sister runs away from home, brave Carrie Ann is determined to find her and bring her back. Disguised as a soldier, she sets off---only to find she's fallen into the hands of the enemy.

Her childhood friend Confederate Major Joshua Blevins has warned her against these Yankees: they're all devils, ready to inflict evil on unsuspecting young women. When Colonel Peyton Collier arrests her for her impersonation of an officer, it seems to confirm all her fears.

Soon, though, she finds herself drawn to the handsome, gallant colonel. He rescued her, protected her, and has been every inch the gentleman. Carrie Ann discovers that her foe has become her ally---and more than that, someone she could love. But the arrival of Joshua in the Union camp as a spy will test her loyalties. Will she protect someone who has been like family or be loyal to this stranger to whom she wants to offer her heart? When her world is being torn apart around her, whom should she trust?

Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, A Thousand Shall Fall is framed around compelling characters and a very romantic setting in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Andrea Boeshaar's extensive research guarantees historical accuracy and romance genre enthusiasts and Civil War buffs alike will enjoy the Christian perspectives on actual historical events.

My Opinion:
Lovely read!  This is the first of Andrea's books I've read and I REALLY enjoy it!  Anyone who follows my reading and reviews knows I enjoy a good Civil War read! :)  And that's exactly what I've found A Thousand Shall Fall to be!  I immediately liked Carrie as a heroine and felt for her as she tries to make things right in her family.  I also enjoy the way Andrea writes.  She throws you right into Carrie's life and fills you in on her past along the way!  Filled with battles and authentic feelings and settings you feel as though you're right there with characters in the thick of things!  This is one of those books that I don't really want to put down!  What will become of Carrie and her family and what twists await as the war fights on? TO BE CONTINUED!!!!!
