A story of love, hope, and healing set in the midst of the Civil War
Nineteen-year-old Carrie Ann Bell is independent and spirited. The only thing she really fears are the Union soldiers fighting against her Confederate friends. When her youngest sister runs away from home, brave Carrie Ann is determined to find her and bring her back. Disguised as a soldier, she sets off--only to find she's fallen into the hands of the enemy.
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?

A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar is set in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War era and is book one of the Shenandoah Valley Saga. 

Ms. Boeshaaar did a wonderful job in researching details from the era and with that wove a historically rich, captivating, clean historical romance. 

A Thousand Shall Fall is an engaging tale that will captivate your imagination and senses with a story that jumps off the pages and comes to life. 

I found this book to be a definite pleasure to read. I can't wait to read book 2 ~ Too Deep For Words ~ being released in November 2016!

4 Stars!
