From Amazon ~ Two sides. Two hearts. And a gulf between them as deep and wide as eternity.
After being forced to use a pistol against invaders, Evelyn Mapleton is no longer the timid girl her extended family expects. The more her aunt and cousin resent her new independence, the more Evelyn is determined she'll make her missing father proud by taking up his cause and aiding Confederate soldiers--even if she has to outmaneuver the Yankees guarding her home to do it.
Samuel Flynn's life is consumed with two priorities: learning to become a proper guardian for the young orphans he's adopted and obtaining his physicians license. When his final testing sends him to a Federal Army field hospital, the last thing he expects is to be entranced by a mysterious woman. But when Evelyn's misguided exploits put her life in danger, will he risk everything he's worked for to save a woman he thinks is his enemy?
Based on first-hand accounts from the Civil War and with a strong romantic thread, this is a tale of faith, espionage, hope, and courage historical fiction fans won't want to miss.
My Comments~ From the rat-ta-tat of Yankee drums accompanying waves of blue uniformed men march through Martinsburg, Virginia to a Washington, D.C. infirmary, Stephenia H. McGee betrays her strong sympathies in the telling of this tale. Well researched, she presents the reader with a balanced perspective on the civil war era. Her main characters express the moral sensibilities of the times and their views are historically accurate. While modernity has moved away from previously held ideas, Eternity Between Us remains faithful to the past and holds fast to a Christian worldview.
