Rated 4 out of 5 by from remnants of war Friday, May 12, 2017 Too Deep for Words: A Civil War Novel by Andrea Boeshaar, © 2017 Shenandoah Valley Saga, Book Two My Review: So many thoughts. To be separated from family ~ far from home with the war between them, not only with distance but with sides drawn. And the remains of my family? My sister, Carrie Ann, married to a Union officer. We have seen the remnants of war continue with the loss of our mother and younger sister. Rescued, I am rescued! A man enters the Inn and asks for Miss Margaret Bell. That is me!! At first, I am chagrined wondering if it is in recouping funds he has lost, but no! It is Carrie's husband and he has made a way of escape for me! Release from the man who was behind the loss of all those held dear to me. Well, maybe Carrie Ann and I did have a few struggles with each other, bossy as she can be to me. Home. Will she accept me? Being married and all, Carrie may have continued on in her life, wanting no interference from me. But, Peyton said to come, she would be amiss to be left behind. Known long before the war between the states, growing up together as children, choosing opposite sides caused the dilemma for whom to trust. Could they be taken at their word, or by their actions? Reading the series in order will give you a fuller aspect in the continuation of history and its events. Peyton Collier and Elijah "Eli" Kent are in such a situation as best friends, having gone to academy school together. As their families become intertwined, how much can be shared? Missing during battle and reported dead, Eli must put into place the instructions Peyton had assigned him. Protecting Carrie Ann and her sister Margaret, and Peyt's Aunt Ruth was foremost. The trials of war on both sides were severe. With the temperature and lack of supplies, exhaustion was also a foe. Homes when available were used for immediate hospitals of the wounded ~ both for their men and prisoners. During the war there was a lack of hospital space. Douglas Hospital in Washington DC set up tents for the overflow of the wounded. --author Andrea Boeshaar The story ends needing the next page beginning book 3, There is a Season. Letters and descriptions of daily happenings and activities are vivid. Characters adjust within the circumstances circulating socially, politically, and everyday business necessary to carry them forward. I would like to know more about Rebekah Kercheval, a character in the background, and hope she will be expanded in the next story. ***Thank you to Kregel Publications for sending me a print copy and inviting me to be part of the blog tour for Too Deep for Words: A Civil War Novel by Andrea Boeshaar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Miss Read This is the second book in the Shenandoah Valley Saga, A Civil War Novel, and the second read that puts you on the battlefield, and then in the home of those affected by the ravages of war. As the book opens we have a young couple, married only a few weeks, and he goes off to a meeting, they have only one night before he goes off again as an officer in the Northern Army. What happens and the regrets she feels is typical, but now she has to keep them forever as her Peyton is declared killed in battle, but for Carrie Ann her heart is telling her no. As the book progresses Aunt Ruth persuades the family to move to their home in Washington D. C., and while there your heart will break as Carrie Ann, and her now returned sister Margaret, search the hospitals for the wounded. We have Peyton’s friend Eli now in charge of her family’s finances, per her husband’s request, a rebel in charge? We also see that Eli really wants more than just financially take care of his friends widow, he wants her, guess we should remember that this is not something new. When circumstance present themselves for Eli and Carrie to be in the same place at the same time, will Eli finally be able to win Carrie, or will she be unable to give her heart to anyone else. What about Margaret and her previous life as a servant, and what if she runs into someone she drugged? With the ending of this book, and you will quickly be there, I still have questions, and hope that answers will be forthcoming, but know that each book can stand alone, but if you read one you will be hooked and fall in love with this series. I received this book through Kregel Publishing Book Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
