Book 1 of SHENANDOAH SISTERS. Two young Southern girls, one the daughter of a plantation owner and one the daughter of a slave, barely survive the onset of the Civil War and the loss of both their families. When these tragic circumstances bring them together, they join forces to discover if they can make a life for themselves. As their preconceptions give way to experience, they gradually learn to value their contrasting and complementing strengths and skills as they face the formidable task of keeping body and soul together in the aftermath of this devastating war. But is it possible the Lord they have come to know has something bigger in mind for the plantation than either of them can imagine?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4.5 Stars If I could, I would rate this book 4.5 stars. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. The friendship between Katie and Mayme is so sweet and all the girls have gone through is heart-wrenching. I also loved the way Katie and Mayme help and love each other despite their differences and the time they live in. The story is well told, and although there is a change of point of view after a few chapters, it's not confusing at all. However, I really didn't enjoy the first chapter. The first chapter of a book is supposed to draw you in and make you want to read on, but the chapter named "Remembering" did the opposite for me. It's quite confusing actually. The narrator, which is Mayme when she is older, is looking for a way to start the story and it annoyed me. She would start talking about something and then say "I'll come back to it later". I found it was a horrible way to start the book. But I wasn't sorry I continued reading the book. The next chapter is already much more interesting. Another thing that annoyed me a little is the editorial mistakes. At some point Mayme describes Katie as having big blue eyes. A few lines further, Katie now has brown eyes. It's the kind of details that frustrates me when I am reading a book... Despite the little things that annoyed me about the book, I really liked Angels watching over me and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
