About the book:
A Thousand Shall Fall: A Civil War Novel (Kregel, November 2015)
A story of love, hope, and healing set in the midst of the Civil War
Her childhood friend Confederate Major Joshua Blevins has warned her against these Yankees: they're all devils, ready to inflict evil on unsuspecting young women. When Colonel Peyton Collier arrests her for her impersonation of an officer, it seems to confirm all her fears.
Soon, though, she finds herself drawn to the handsome, gallant colonel. He rescued her, protected her, and has been every inch the gentleman. Carrie Ann discovers that her foe has become her ally---and more than that, someone she could love. But the arrival of Joshua in the Union camp as a spy will test her loyalties. Will she protect someone who has been like family or be loyal to this stranger to whom she wants to offer her heart? When her world is being torn apart around her, whom should she trust?
Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, A Thousand Shall Fall is framed around compelling characters and a very romantic setting in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Andrea Boeshaar's extensive research guarantees historical accuracy and romance genre enthusiasts and Civil War buffs alike will enjoy the Christian perspectives on actual historical events.

MY THOUGHTS-Andrea Boeshaar is an excellent author who actually made me read about a time period I normally don't even pick up. The American Civil War is often a dry topic for me, I prefer reading non-fiction that tells actual historical events. A Thousand Shall Fall is the start to a new series and while it is not my favorite of hers, the pace is a bit slow, it is still very good.
Carrie Ann and Peyton are such a sweet couple. Carrie has such a funny way about her and the humor in the book comes from her. It kind of adds some warmth to the otherwise dark and horrible story of the war. The Colonel is kind and rugged, making a perfect match to Carrie and her impetuous ways. The author has definitely done her research and you can tell it from the notes she includes at the front. The scenes and events are portrayed in such a vivid manner. Amazing attention to detail! Again, it was a good book, just not a favorite.
