Too Deep for Words, By Andrea Boeshaar
About the Book: Carrie Ann Collier has been a newlywed for nineteen blissful days–as blissful as life can be in the midst of war, that is. Soon that war will take a toll she never expected. When her new husband, Peyton, goes missing during battle, she refuses to believe he is dead and must find a way to move forward with everyday life in the face of fear.
As Carrie struggles with how to welcome her estranged sister, Margaret, back into her life, another new arrival appears on her doorstep–her husband’s best friend, and rebel officer, Eli. Wounded and bitter, Eli is nonetheless committed to keeping his promise to Peyton: take care of the Collier women, no matter what. But to Carrie, he’s a painful reminder of her lost love.
Then unexpected news makes Carrie wonder if miracles do happen. If Carrie infiltrates the enemy once again, she might find out what really happened to the love of her life. Will Eli be able to keep his promise to keep her safe? Can they forgive each other if promises are broken?
My Thoughts: It shouldn’t be a surprise that I requested this book from the publisher, because I LOVE historical fictions. This one by Andrea Boeshaar is extremely well researched so you feel like you really are in the Civil War era as a reader. While the story is dark there is light at the end of the tunnel. I absolutely love the story and I think anyone looking for a book to read and decompress with will too.
