5.0 out of 5 stars A Love that is Tested through War 8 Aug. 2014
By Elaine Littau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The opening chapter of this book painted a somber story of a sorrowful day in the life of a widow of the Civil War. With great expertise the author wove a story of love, sorrow, sacrifice, patriotism, and valor throughout the pages. The blatant numbers of casualties in each landmark battle astonished me. All my life I recall hearing of Bull Run and Gettysburg yet had no idea of the carnage on those fields of battle.
The background and mood of this book rings true. It is not a book with trivial romance within its covers, but the love of a husband and wife, despite tremendous sorrows and separation. It reminds me that we are told in the Scriptures that 'love endures all things'. It is a book that the reader will be glad to have read. I know I am.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Vivid, moving, and credible story of the Civil War. 25 May 2015
By Laurie Bethel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sarah carries an overwhelming burden of guit and grief over her husband's enlistment and resulting death in the Civil War. She believes her actions toward Taylor perpetrated his decision to enlist. Her assumed guilt causes a rift between Sarah and her inlaws. Her young son rarely sees his father's side of the family because Sarah cannot face them until she faces her personal demons.

A stack of letters from Taylor during his time in battle, are kept tucked away. Sarah puts off reading them for fear of what she will discover. When she finally gains the courage to open them, she realizes how much her husband loved her and how much she's lost.

Scott R. Rezer has a poetic gift for words. Whether he describes an overcast sky, a sunny day,heartache, or a raging battle, you will be swept into the scene. He has this same gift with emotion. You will cry with the characters one minute, rejoice the next.

I have never read a more vivid, moving, and credible account of the Civil War era-, including the struggles, disease, hardships, and battles. I believe it's because the story is based on a stack of letters in the author's possession. Letters written by the main characters Sarah and Taylor, who were Mr. Rezor's ancestors.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who would likes authentic stories of the Civil War witten with vivid description.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story with different perspectives 14 Jan. 2014
By J Marriott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved how this story was really told in 3 perspectives: Sarah's present perspective, Taylor's actual past perspective, and the bits of his story that she gets to see through his letters. It really rounded out my understanding of some of the details of the war and the effects on real people. I loved to hear that these characters were pulled from real family of the author. I felt like they were closer to me and more realistic.

The book really showed the complexities of the time. Instead of portraying everything in a polarized way, the author seemed to really grasp and convey how there were mixtures of responses in how people viewed the war, different leaders, and the country. I really loved the read!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! 7 April 2014
By Joan Brown Derry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After waiting a few months before writing a review, I now feel it would be a disservice to this book and author to delay any longer. "Love Abideth Still" is the amazing story of my great-great-grandparents, Taylor and Sarah Rezer. The author, Scott R. Rezer, has done a most amazing feat of combining the accurate reality of their lives supported by a fictional tale of the times enfolding about them. His skill transported me back in time to feel as if I was a part of their struggles, losses, grief -- and yet finding comfort in their healing and victories. Way to go, Scott!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! 2 Mar. 2015
By Angela Mattei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love period novels and this one definitely ranks up there with my favorites! Without giving anything away, I was a little worried about the outcome of the book about halfway through, skipped ahead to find out the ending, then went back to finish the rest of the book when I was ok with how the ending would be. ;) Yes, I'm that kind of reader! It's worth reading all the way through....
