"Eternity Between Us" by Stephenia H McGee

Book Info

"This tale brings a turbulent time to life with nuance and sensitivity."

JOCELYN GREEN, award-winning author of the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series

"An unnatural thunder rumbled through the air, carrying with it not thoughts of rain but of smoke and trepidation..."

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 Review: 
"Eternity Between Us" by Stephenia H McGee is a novel that you will want to finish before putting it down. It is filled with intrigue and betrayal and is based on first-hand accounts from the Civil War. It is also a clean love story about a man and woman who are on opposite sides during the war. If you like stories based on the civil war and like reading about spies then "Eternity Between Us" is for you and there is another bonus for readers if you are like me and like children in the books you read, Benjamin and Emily will melt your hearts.

There are a couple of scenes that will make the readers with tender hearts need a tissue because it tells how prisoners of war are treated by a certain doctor from the opposing side of the war. I think if more were like Samuel and Evelyn, there might not have been as many casualties of the Civil War because they know all men have feelings and deserved to be treated equally.

Can Samuel and Evelyn learn to trust each other and follow their hearts?
I recommend that you read the section, "Historical note",  after reading the novel because it explains the historical facts that was included in the story.

I received a complementary copy by the author. These opinions are my own.
