From the back cover: 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.
The American Civil War lasted four years fought from 1861 to 1865. Carrie Ann is searching for her sister, who has run away, in August of 1864. Now she is captured by the Yankees and that is where the story really kicks into high gear. This is a story all about prejudice and how it is taught to us. “A Thousand Shall Fall” is a story of love, forgiveness and restoration. This book is an exciting read full of action and adventure. I like the way Ms. Boeshaar writes. She is an accomplished author who knows how to deliver true to life dialog and create wonderful characters that you fall in love with. The love story between Carrie Ann and Peyton is a lot of fun and this book is filled with plenty of action to keep you turning the pages. This is an excellent read! I recommend it.
