Amongst the Roses Review


 About the Book

The War Between the States shakes Margaret Bryant out of her comfortable upper-class life when her father enlists in the Army of the Potomac. Despite being safely ensconced above the Mason-Dixon Line in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Margaret finds her strength tested by opposition from familiar faces and Confederate threats. Will she let a young man from a lesser station into her heart even as war rages ever nearer to the home front?

Restless Connor Doyle sees the war as a way to escape from his family’s farm and his identity as a poor Irishman’s son. His brother, Adam, torn between duty to country and his family, enlists alongside Connor. Adam dares to hope in a future with Margaret when he begins a courtship correspondence from the war front. The two brothers make a vow to protect one another at all costs, but when faced with death and destruction from all sides—will they be able to uphold it?

The three bloodiest days in America’s history bring these three together at Gettysburg and tragedy’s cruelty threatens to tear two hearts apart—and bring two unlikely allies together. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I have really enjoyed Meghan's books so I was excited to see her write a historical novel. This book was very slow for me. I enjoyed the characters, the setting, and the time period but struggled to totally love this book and the story line. I think that Meghan has some great talent so I am eager to read more by her, this just wasn't my favorite. I do recommend reading her previous books and keep an eye out for upcoming releases!

"Thanks to the author for providing me with an e-ARC of the book. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own."
