Confederate Lieutenant Anderson Blanks has grown weary of the War Between the States. He is all too aware of the tenuous thread that ties him to this earth—as he writes a letter home to his sister, he realizes he may be among the dead by the time she receives the missive. His melancholy mood is shared by other soldiers in the campsite; in the cool Virginia night, the picke ...more

Holy crap. All I can say is wow. So effing emotional. Alot of heart packed in this little package. I was misty through the whole damn thing. Brilliant. Just brilliant. I can't even ...
The blurb is very in depth about the plot of the story so you know what you’re getting with this historical. It’s heavily romantic and dramatic with a wounded Sam and Andy frantically trying to save his lover before Sam dies or either one of them is taken prisoner. The tension and angst run high within this story but romance lovers will adore the relationship between Sam and Andy while being satisfied with a happy ending worth the struggle and heart ache the men have been through. Once again, Sn ...more
The opening of A Heart Divided is absolutely wonderful. Lieutenant Anderson Blanks is writing a letter to his sister and then shortly afterward moves through the camp of his Confederate regiment. To those pundits who say that you should start with action and ignore things like description, I say pooh. This is the sort of beginning to a book that I really like, and the sort of thing that grips me.

It really drips with atmosphere; a heavy, hot Virginian night. Insects sounding the night, men spooke

One of my favourite genre settings is the American Civil War. In reality it was a brutal conflict with unimaginable bloodshed and death, but it also had a strong element of gallantry and romance as represented by the young men, the ‘flower of manhood,’ who participated in it because of principles they were willing to die for. This is the sense I found in J.M. Synder’s period novel A Heart Divided [CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, July 27, 2011].

This story is about two separated lovers that find each other by chance on the battlefield after 3 years apart. They are fighting on opposite sides of the Civil War. One is injured and the other must save him without being discovered by the other soldiers.

I enjoyed this story. It was a quick historical read and the writing flowed really well. The author did a really good job of writing the setting of the story so that you could imagine being out there with the characters in the camp and deep woo

This was a quick read set during the civil war. A confederate soldier realizes the wounded union soldier he just found is the love he had thought moved west. It is a story of desperation and love with a much needed happy ending. 3.5 stars.

This was absolutely beautiful, read it when you going through one of those phases when you think the world is full of shit and need something to believe again.
Beautifully written historical set during the Civil War.
