Too Deep for Words is a continuation of A Thousand Shall Fall. The story picks up just days after the end of the first book, so I highly recommend reading these in order.
Carrie Ann Collier has matured in this second book. We see a change in her that reflects the effects of all she’s been through. But the war isn’t over and neither is the devastation. When her husband is deemed missing and presumed dead, she’s not willing to believe it. When she has the chance to go to Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy, she jumps at it knowing that if her husband survived by some miracle, he’d likely be there at Libby Prison. She doesn’t expect to meet her husband’s best friend, Confederate officer Eli Kent there. And she really doesn’t expect what happens next.
I like a book that keeps me guessing, and this one did. If you enjoy Civil War era stories and if you enjoy a romance that’s not cut-and-dried boy-meets-girl, read this book.
