I Shall Be Near You by Erin Lindsay McCabe
This is a superb historical fiction account of the civil war. This story has a cast of interesting and complex characters. The main character is a woman who disguises herself as a man to join her husband in the Union army. It details historical fact while weaving in emotionally charged circumstances that she finds herself in. She faces moral dilemnas such as like having to shoot another human being to save another, bringing water to a dying Confederate soldier, having mercy on a spy, lying about who she is to stay with the man she loves. There is adventure, intrigue, romance and selflessness portrayed throughout this tale. It is a definite, without a doubt a 5 star book!
I received this book free from booklook and was not required to write a favorable review.
