Interesting idea, but regrettably the characters are two- or one-dimensional. The main female character, Hannah, is the only one with a bit of depth (i.e., the two-dimensional one).

Mostly, the story is a series of sex scenes with a bit of plot in between. Hannah’s backstory is bizarre and borders on unbelievable, but her past experiences, as well as the time the author took to at least partially develop her character, make her the most realistic character.

I won’t be reading any more books by the

Great love story

The love story between Hannah and Lucas is not an easy road. Takes place during the Civil War. He is a doctor and after running away from abusive husband. Hannah ends up as a nurse for the Union. Her sworn enemy, since she is from and for the south. This book has several twist and turns. I highly recommend this book. I hope the author has more stories about the characters in this story.

Didn’t all add up

My goal is always to finish even if I do not like it. This was one of them. The story was unbelievable to me in some parts which made it hard to finish.

More than one type of war

This is my fourth book that I have read by Leslie Hachtel, and I believe that it is my favorite of them. Set during the Civil War, the story of Hannah's war takes us on a journey with Hannah Mason. This woman who grew up with no comfort at home because of a spiteful mother and missing father. No wonder she jumps headlong at the first man that shows her any attention or affection. Unfortunately for her Daniel Mason was not all that he seemed. Finding out that your husband

Leslie Hachtel has a gift for transporting her readers back to another time. In Hannah’s War she achieved that goal once again by transporting us back to the South during the time of the Civil War.

Hannah is a woman desperate to leave her abusive husband and her less than loving mother. Thanks to the war, Hannah is able to sneak away unnoticed. Just when she thought she had reached her goal, Nashville, she is taken into custody along with other women of ill repute. She ends up on a steamboat dea

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Hannah’s War by Leslie Hatchel is a fantastic historical fiction read that transports you to another time. A time where the north and south were at war.
A woman’s place was in the home and people of color were slaves.

You meet Hannah. She escapes her abusive husband and finds herself alone in a world she doesn’t know anymore. A chance encounter with an old friend sets her off on a journey. Hannah meets people from all walks of life.

Hannah's War is a fantastic historical fiction that is absolutely amazing to read. Leslie Hachtel has a gift for transporting readers back in time. This time we find ourselves in the South during the Civil War. Hannah is desperate to leave her abusive husband and her nasty mother.
As we follow Hannah's journey I was glad that, for the most part, things work out for her. There are definitely some dramatic twists and turns, but it always ends positively. It was a light, easy read with just the rig
