This story is about a brother and sister who are separated by war. Claire is devastated when her brother Frank joins the Confederate army. She is worried about his life but worries most about his soul.
Clare's letters to Frank are written so well by the author's words that I felt like I was really reading letters that was written while the war was raging on! I actually felt their struggles and heartaches. I think the reason I like reading this story is because the facts are true and even though battle is described, the details aren't gory ( well a little to get the idea) and such but the reader can feel the pain and sorrow the soldiers and Claire faced!
There is even a new love interest in this story for Claire, but we have to wait for book 2 to see if it goes anywhere.
Yes this is Christian Fiction, but I recommend it to anyone that likes Historical Fiction, and yes I am going to say I believe this story would make a great movie. Fans of "Gone With The Wind" would love " Where Could I Flee". It is not a remake of "Gone With the Wind" at all just the same time period in history.
"Where Could I Flee" by A.M.Heath is definitely a five story book. I was given a copy of " In the Shadow Of His Wings" from Celebrate Lit and the author for an honest review.This book is full of heartaches and sorrows as well as forgiveness and love and friendships. It literally made me cry during a few of the scenes. I really think this and the first book in this series (
There are surprises all through the story.
"The way I see it,fear is a healthy thing. When you're scared, you're more likely to remember the One that holds you together. You remember the One that gives you courage. The One that guides you in the dark : that hides you behind the shadow of His wings. When a person is scared he doesn't have to be reminded to pray or to be careful, but, you see , a cocky person , one who is comfortable, isn't careful and he isn't mindful of the Lord ,either."
I am glad to say there is going to be a third book in this series. I am anxiously awaiting it.
