Book Review: Faith by Lyn Cote

A Quaker Brides Novel
By Lyn Cote

"Can't thee see the world is changing around thee?"

The Civil War battlefield is the last place Quakers Faith Cathwell thought she'd find herself. But with a gift for nursing, Faith seizes this opportunity to join the fight for abolition - and to search for Shiloh, a freeborn childhood friend who was kidnapped and sold south by unscrupulous slave catchers. Knowing it's much too dangerous for her to search enemy territory alone, Faith enlists the help of Colonel Delvin Knight, who is indebted to her for saving his cousin's life. A career soldier, Dev is committed to the preservation of the Union but conflicted about freeing his own slave and confidant, who plans to as enlist as soon as Dev gives him manumission papers. Blazing a trail east with the rest of Grant's army, Dev and Faith fight their personal battles - and a growing attraction to each other. When beliefs clash and passions flare, they quickly find out the only thing more dangerous than the war surrounding them is the battle within their hearts. 

Lyn Cot is the award-winning, critically acclaimed author of more than thirty five novels. Her books have been RITA Award finalists and Holt Medallion and Carol Award winners. Lyn and her husband have two grown children and live on a small, beautiful lake in northern Wisconsin. 

*I was sent this book by the publisher. 

I know I say it all the time, but it's true I love Romance novels. Especially ones with a historical setting so when I was given the chance to read Faith of course I said yes! I love the Civil War setting even if it is a bit like looking through rose colored glasses and Faith Cathwell is fantastic. She's a strong determined woman, who isn't afraid to speak her mind, and always tries to do the right thing. The conflict between her and Dev, adds a lot to the story and Faith is a book you'll want to take with you on a weekend trip. If you like Playing the Part or Seagrass Pier you'll love Faith.
