To onlookers, Carrie Ann Bell Collier might appear to be the dutiful wife, sitting at her unconscious husband’s bedside. But she feels like a hypocrite. Instead of trusting her intuition, she allowed herself to believe Peyton was dead. And then she fell in love with his best friend, Eli Kent.
Except, Peyton wasn’t dead, and now Carrie will do anything to keep him alive.
My thoughts: While the first two books in this series were amazing, this one fell a little flat for me. The author does an incredible job of bringing the Civil War era to life in each of these books. This story just felt like it ended abruptly and that several of the key characters didn't see resolution of any sort after playing such big parts in the story. The nurse in this story is a truly horrible person, though I kind of get why Carrie felt like she needed to hire her, with her feelings of guilt.
Overall, I would recommend the first two books whole heartedly and caution readers that this one doesn't have a very satisfying end.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.
