Jocelyn Green combines historical fact with well-woven fiction to bring a period of time to life. Sophie and Harrison are Unionists trapped in Richmond during the second half of the Civil War. They risk their lives to spy for the Union. The details given in the book are amazing. The description of conditions in Libby Prison were interesting and you can read with assurance that author Green has been doing her homework. I’m sure there are some inconsistencies, but all the books in this Heroines Behind the Lines series have been fact-filled and deep with story. For a look into the life of Richmond women during the war, pick up this book and you’ll surely enjoy it. Follow free woman Bella, her imprisoned husband Abraham, along with Sophie and Harrison.
Thanks to Moody Publishers for providing me an advance copy for a review in my own words.
