This was a good book about the Civil War, and how it divides families, friends and loved ones. Levi is a Quaker, who is engaged to Comfort. Surry, a young black girl is friends with Willa, a white girl. Each person has separate views of the coming war. Levi, as his religouis tenets tell him, wants no part of it. Surry wants to escape to the North; Willa, after her brothers are killed in the 1st battle, runs away from home, dresses as a man and joins the Confederate Army to kill the Yankees.

True to life, touchingly poignant, it leaves the reader aching because, as in real life so often, there are no happy endings, no satisfying solutions, only going constantly onward. It is labeled "book one" and I would hope to find there is a conclusion to this story worthy of the characters portrayed in it.

I’ve raised and loved Siberian huskies over 40 years. My last husky, Xander, died recently at fourteen. His death prompted me to begin researching then writing the Watch Eyes Trilogy. Before attempting this YA frontier series, I wrote historical romance set primarily in the Old West. My six published novels to date are with Five Star, Gale/Cengage. The Watch Eyes Trilogy is set in the Arctic West. ...more
