He has is the boy's first name And as she soon discovers there's no record of him ever having enlisted How can she set out alone across a land so divided by war and hatred to honor her pledge Even does she dare accept Captain Jones's offer to accompany her As he coalesces at Carnton romance has blossomed between him and Lizzie a woman already betrothed to a man she does not lov 'Sometimes life on this side of the veil is far difficult than I think it should be But then God promises to not eliminate suffering' Every so often you read a book that when you finish you can't even bear to pick up another to read I stayed up late to finish this powerful story and then the characters populated my dreams and held my mind captive for a long time This is such a bookNovember 30 1864 Franklin Tennessee The Civil War is raging Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Clouston is a governess for the McGavocks at their home Carnton The battle of Franklin begins that day and rages for 8 hours and kills nearly 10000 men Carnton is immediately turned into a field hospital so full of men undergoing surgery that they spill onto the lawn and beyond The battlefield is clearly visible from Carnton's windows and it is vicious So vicious that one soldier said 'It was as if the devil had full possession of the earth' An actual soldier of the battle said this Lizzie is pressed into service as assistant to the doctor and surgeon administering chloroform as he operates and tending to the wounded and dying Her heart is breaking at the atrocities she sees One soldier Captain Roland Jones insists she stand up for him while he is under anesthesia and not let the doctor amputate his leg even if it means he'll never have use of it again Lizzie hates slavery even though she lives in the south and works for a slave owner Roland is himself a slave owner She is convinced that the south will lose and she hopes for this to happen so that all men may be free But Lizzie is not vocal about her feelings and this begins to bother her greatly This book is based on historical fact There was a real battle of Franklin as there is still a real Carnton plantation Almost every character in her story was an actual person Tamera Alexander's research is impeccable and she makes this dreadful time come alive for her readers I studied the Civil War in school and have read numerous books that dealt with the subject or set in the time period but she completely brought it home fully to me The Battle of Franklin has been called the bloodiest battle of the Civil War Numerous Confederate generals met their death in this battle and it was said that a person could walk across the battlefield and not touch the ground because there were so many dead As a history lover this book was eye opening to me It also made me reach out and do some research of my ownAlexander's descriptions are so vivid the reader feels as if they are transported back in time standing right there in the middle of the scene where life and death hangs in the balance for these wounded soldiers I felt as if I were in those rooms at Carnton where the blood was spattered along the walls men lay dying and begging for relief Our hearts hurt as they cry out for someone to let their loved ones know what happened to them This actually happened This part is not fiction The feelings that Alexander conveys are so visceral that the reader gasps at the savagery of it all I wept through many passages And all through the book her spiritual theme shines through Tamera Alexander manages to include her readers in everything she writes; not just this book but her others as well There is such a depth to her writing that it's no wonder I carried these characters with me long after finishing the book And that they invaded my dreams This was one of the most powerful and outstanding books I've ever read I highly recommend this Not to be missedI received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through Net Galley Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own
