A Musket in My Hands

A Musket in My Hands (Civil War Romance Series Book 3)A Musket in My Hands by Sandra Merville Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A unique look at the War of Northern Aggression from the standpoint of a pair of southern sisters left in destitute circumstances. With dismal prospects – and limited food – they set out to disguise themselves as soldiers and join the Confederate Army and the two men who hold their hearts. Any notion that they’ll be safe there is quickly squashed as they march their way toward Franklin, Tennessee.

Wonderfully detailed history that adds to the story without distracting the reader, an interesting and often overlooked sector of the population during this war, and a heart-warming love story all rolled into one.

A Stranger On My Land

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A sweet novella set during the Civil War. It’s not about the battles or the issues of the times, it’s about a young girl and a wounded soldier. It’s about having the pluck to see beyond the stereotypes to the person. It’s about facing danger and sacrificing for someone else. It’s about the human experience during what can be inhuman times. Well worth reading when you need something uplifting and not too long.
