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.
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.
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!
