This book is about the Civil war, there are some incidents during the battles that I'm not sure that they actually took place, but I wouldn't be surprised! This book has 4 settings/parts: The Yankee (November '60-'61), The Farmer (April '61-'62), The Soldier (April '62-August '62), and The Prisoner (August '62-September '62)

The story begins with Captain Hubbard bringing the "Dixie Queen" into Richmond. As they were docking, he gave directions to Tyler, the first mate, that the stowaway should be

This series by Gilbert Morris is one of my absolute favorites. Each book follows at least one member of a generation in the Winslow family tree and the member(s) gets saved and finds true love. There's also some commentary on the social conditions of the time frame. Truly interesting.
Some parts were boring, some were entertaining. And some were sad. It was also predictable and some aspects were very similar to the other books in the series. But the Christian message was good, and the book was informative about the Civil War, especially the Southern side of things.

Very good book! I like how this series weaves history and Christianity into the lives of the characters. I also like how some of the characters are actual historical figures (Robert E. Lee). A good book!

Gilbert Morris continues The House of Winslow series with yet another book that continues the Winslow lineage through another period of American history. This is a fantastic historical fiction series that is enjoyed most when the books are read in the order they were published.
