Rated 4 out of 5 by from lack of sleep and quick-on-your-feet decisions Thursday, January 7, 2016 A Thousand Shall Fall: A Civil War Novel by Andrea Boeshaar, © 2015 Shenandoah Valley Saga, Book One Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, 1864 Carrie Ann Bell has a deeper adventure ahead of her as she goes after her younger sister, Sarah Jane. Mama has said not to come home without her. In the midst of the battle, how is she to go across the lines? Determined, she dresses as a soldier beneath a dress, going into the woods beyond the town. Full of American Civil War research, these characters bloom amid hardship and turmoil. Peyton Collier on one side and Carrie Ann's childhood friend, Joshua Blevens on the other, she must decide where her alliance will lie. With her new supportive protector or the neighbor from back home ~ either decision will have lasting results detrimental to each side. A strong point was the developing character of Peyton Collier whom Carrie Ann had met previously. In their comical re-meeting, Peyton helps Carrie out of a fix. Amid war, there wasn't much of a chance for them to converse except haltingly. Sending her to his Aunt Ruth was an aid to all of them. The side characters add to the story. I liked the spunk of Aunt Ruth's housekeeper and life-long friend, Tabitha. It is true about being careful whose company you keep, as Joshua found out was not beneficial to him. I rooted for him to make a turnaround. A short time period seems like an eternity with lack of sleep and quick-on-your-feet decisions. ***Thank you to Kregel Publications for sending me a review copy and inviting me to be part of the blog tour for A Thousand Shall Fall: A Civil War Novel by Andrea Boeshaar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Factual Read Andrea Boeshaar has gifted us with a wonderful read, a page-turner for sure, and one that will linger with you for a long time. The reality of the Civil War in the Southern States was not pretty, and we picture all of the destruction from the eyes of young Carrie Ann Bell, and Colonel Peyton Collier, a Virginian in the Northern Army. We meet Aunt Ruth and immediately fall in love with her and how she cares for people. With a few chuckles as she “puts her foot in her mouth”, when she makes a lie into something even bigger. Oh my, she is a northern sympathizer living in the South, and has friends, kind of, on both sides. Loved all the amazing facts that are presented here and there is a great deal of research done by the author, and loved how it is all worked into this story. Both main characters are Northern sympathizers and are from the South, both have friends that would be considered enemies, and these are woven into the story, and sometimes you wonder how they know whom they can trust. A really good historical read, which once you turn that first pages your gone until the end. I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
