The Chaplain’s Daughter is book two in the series Sons of the Shenandoah by Kathleen L. Maher.

This is a well-written story about two souls caught in the upheaval of the Civil War. Can they trust God to see them through this turbulent time?

Seemingly abandoned in 1862, The Chaplain’s Daughter, Miss Ellen White has to fend for herself. She finds work as a washerwoman at a field hospital in Virginia until she is pressed upon to help with a badly wounded Captain Gideon Sharpe. After his father, Sam

Injury, Reluctance, Healing, and Love

I enjoyed reading this story very much! The detail of daily life, finding strength in forgiveness, and the hope of love, despite feeling unworthy. There is tragedy in war, people are injured an many are killed. This story is wonderfully told without gory details. It takes place mostly away from the battlefield. It is a story of one man's injury ( Gideon), a chance encounter with an acquaintance from his past (Ellen) and healing. Not only from his injuries but

War leads to many injuries of the body. It also uncovers other wounds to the souls of men and women, only adding to the sorrow and difficulty that can interfere with healing. In The Chaplain’s Daughter, by author Kathleen L. Maher, these afflictions bring a young laundress, Ellen, into the role of caregiver for Gideon, a seriously wounded army captain. Set in the Civil War, this romance novel reveals the struggle to maintain faith when circumstances challenge one’s belief in a God who cares.

Book 2 in Kathleen L. Maher's Sons of the Shenandoah is a true work of heart. I read and loved Book 1: The Abolitionist's Daughter so I knew I would be reading The Chaplain's Daughter. It did not disappoint. Historical Fiction/Romance is a genre that I don't always find myself eagerly anticipating. I actually avoided it for several years. All that changed within the first few pages of this series.

There is such an indescribably potent blend of God, despair, and forgiveness. War is such an ugly th

Ellen has gone from being the somewhat spoiled, well-dressed daughter of a minister to a washwoman for the Confederate army. You will admire Ellen as she does what is necessary to provide for herself when she ends up homeless even when that includes assisting the doctor in caring for Captain Gideon Sharpe’s wounds. Gideon is not an easy man to care for! His wife has died during the birth of his twin daughters. Now he is injured and cannot get back to them. God works in the lives of many of the c ...more

The author has done a masterful job of taking us back to the sights and smells of the Revolutionary War. Gideon, a gravely injured captain, is a war hero accused of desertion since he has no recall of his last battle. His anger precludes him from the forgiveness he needs to give in order to accept the love freely given by God and others. Ellen is an army laundress who decides to believe God when He whispers “Trust Me - I've chosen you, child”.
A wonderful story of overcoming war, hurts and death

I read this book at the perfect time of year - Easter. One theme of the story is redemption and it tied in perfectly with this season. Ellen is steadfast in her faith and her work for her country and the Lord. Gideon deals with loss - his wife, his family, his post, and what he feels makes him a man. Can Ellen’s agape love transform his heart and show him that God wants to heal the broken pieces of it? Gideon is angry and seems offended by everyone and everything. A wonderfully written book once ...more
