Sue, North River patron, July 2016, 5 stars:

Book # 6 of The Journals of Corrie Belle Hollister. She not only becomes a woman newspaper writer but also has a book published. She is invited as a guest of President Lincoln to visit the White House and has quite an adventure before and after she gets there. What a brave young lady to work and go after what she believes in, even gets into the battle at Gettysburg. Michael Phillips gives you an exciting Christian read.

I first read this book several years ago as part of the series. I remember loving the series so much, and worked on collecting them. Now I'm reading through them again and I don't think I'm enjoying them as much as I did the first time. Especially this book.

The writing style is simple, not fancy, nothing to make t ...more

This showed me a lot of close up and personal insights in the actual battles of the Civil War. It also showed the anguish President Lincoln may have gone through trying to work with his generals in ending the war. This was an excellent book in bringing the Civil War out of the history books and brought to life in a real way.

This book follows Corrie Hollister as she travels back east to help with the American Civil War and Abraham Lincoln's 2nd presidential campaign. This book helps one to really think about what took place during the American Civil War and how much it affected the course of the nation.

Still dealing w/ war of which doesn't hold much interest for me; but others might enjoy. I could easily skip this one as well or at best make a trip to the Library for it.
