Litfuse Review- The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck

post signatureHey everyone! I cannot believe that it's only a week until Christmas Eve!!


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*

Wow. Wow,wow,wow,wow,WOW! I do not have a clue how Rachel pulled this off but I am so glad she did!! Why am I so surprised she did? Let me list the reasons:

1. I generally am not a fan of stories about couples with marital problems. I read fiction to escape stress and that feels like non-fiction to me.

2. The story is not just told from one persons point of you but from four. FOUR! 

3. This is one of those books where it switches from one scene to another-this one happens to be from 1948 to 2015!

4. I didn't feel lost when it ended. (This is not a bad thing, read to the end!)

The funny thing is, those are all things that make it difficult for me to get into a novel with. That and the fact that I had 2 days to read it. I finished it in 3 1/2 hours. No food. No water. No bathroom breaks. I don't know what you call it but around here...that's called obsession.

I was entirely and completely obsessed with this book. It was beautiful. Heartfelt. Well written. Captivating. Enchanting. Breathtaking. Surprising. Endearing. There are not enough words to describe how much I loved this book. 

Absolutely worth reading 50,000,000,000 times. And I will. Believe me.

            *My overall thoughts*

The best contemporary/historical mixed novel I have ever read! Beautiful and redemptive, this story will captivate you from beginning to end!

                        *My Rating*

  I give The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck...


                                  5 stars!! 

*I received this book from litfuse, the publisher, and the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

Happy Reading,
