This is one of those stories that made me run through a mixture of emotions. It was at times sad and tense but at other times joyful, beautiful and romantic. I found myself totally immersed in the story of Wil Fredericks, a woman who runs away to join the Union army disguised as a man and meets the woman of her dreams. Clara is a southerner but that is just one of the enormous obstacles in their way. Yolanda Wallace has managed to write a wonderful love story set against the worst of times. I loved it and highly recommend this book. Five stars!
I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
