Litfuse Review- A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar

post signature                 *Summary*

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.

                        *My Thoughts*
As long as I can remember, I've always admired women that have taken a leap of danger and uncertainty to do something unexpected and great. Something "only men can do". Especially when it comes to women impersonating men in wars. It takes a lot of courage and perseverance and guts to do what Carrie Ann did.

Also, can we talk about her name and how much I adore historical time period stories?! She's used to a certain degree of elegance and yet, she still is out looking for her sister. She could be killed or tortured and yet, she is looking out for others. She has a genuine compassionate, adventurous spirit and I love her!

It was hard to figure out who to trust, which of course, added to the intrigue and suspense of it all. Is Joshua trustworthy? Is Peyton? Find out in this riveting story!


                  *My overall thoughts*

Well researched history,a fantastic plot, well developed characters, and perfectly timed conflicts and chemistry weaves the perfect civil war tale! A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar is a keeper!

                        *My Rating*

  I give A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar...


                                  5 stars!!
