ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) which empowers Christian novelists by inspiring them to join with God in the creative process, training them in the craft, and educating them in the publishing industry. A Thousand Shall Fall is Andrea's first novel that I have read. I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity for my honest review.
In A Thousand Shall Fall, Carrie Ann Bell is nineteen years old and has quite a bit of spunk. Not only does she find herself falling in love but she manages to get arrested by Peyton Collier, a colonel in the Union Army. Peyton is on a mission to win the war, properly follow God, and return home to his Aunt Ruth. Meeting up with the likes of Carrie Ann was not in his plans. Aunt Ruth and Tabitha, a freed slave, add a little humor as secondary characters. At the end there is an excerpt from the next book in the series and I don't know how I am going to wait to find out what happens.
While I enjoy historical novels, I don't know much about history when it comes to wars. Andrea has obviously done her research to write this story rich in historical detail. I learned a lot about the Civil War while reading this book. The characters show how hard to was to know who to trust during this turbulent time in the United States. I really enjoyed this sweet romance and would recommend reading it.
