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.

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.
