A Thousand Shall Fall
A Civil War Novel - Shenandoah Valley Saga
by Andrea Boeshaa
In the autumn of 1864, spirited Carrie Ann Bell is searching for her runaway sister in the heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Disguised as a Yankee soldier, she stumbles into a skirmish near Front Royal-and instead of her sister, she finds trouble.
Colonel Peyton Collier of the Union cavalry division arrests her for impersonating an officer, but protects her from worse consequences. Soon the Southern girl finds herself drawn to the chivalrous Yankee horseman, discovering that her foe has become her ally-and more than that, some one she could love. But Carrie has promised to keep a dark secret, never suspecting that her silence might threaten the life of the gallant colonel who holds her-and her heart-captive.

My thoughts: I have to say, and you probably already know this, but I absolutely love romance novels. Even better if they're a historical. So of course I was excited to read A Thousand Shall Fall. It has everything you'll (and I) love from a strong, smart female lead to a brave man that she of course falls for. Andrea Boeshaar has written it so you feel like you're a part of Carrie Ann Bell and like you're in the Civil War area with her. If you like When the Clouds Roll By or Captured By Love you'll want to read A Thousand Shall Fall.
