This is a continuation of the Shenandoah Valley Saga that began with A Thousand Shall Fall. I enjoyed this story though not quite like the first book. Carrie Ann finds her too sisters and Peyton asks Margaret to join him and Carrie Ann in their home. Peyton then must go to fight again. This story made me cry in many places. It truly shows how many of the women must have felt during this bloody time in our history. I received this book from I blog for Kregel for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
