If you haven't read the book please do so, I'm sure you will see things differently too. It's a book well worth reading.
The research done for this book earned 5 stars. I have a lot of respect for those that do their homework and Marsha did hers. She really made the social behavior in 1860's a realistic portrayal of the 'American' family at that time.
She wrote about the Confederate side. Since I have ancestors that fought on both sides, I appreciated reading about the side that lost.
I also enjoyed reading the different point of views from all the family members - men and women. She didn't stay stuck with one character for the whole novel.
Now for the reasons behind 3 stars.
-1 star: too much sensuality. I asked myself whether or not I would feel comfortable if my daughters got this book in their hands. The answer was no.
-1 star: I found myself skipping around which means she didn't hold my interest like her last book did.
You will sympathize, cry, and root for the wellbeing of the Owen's family as the Civil War tears at their very lives. Will body and soul survive the conflict?
Marsha Ward weaves a compelling story, one worth reading. I've read and enjoyed all of her books in this series and find Gone for a Soldier is the best one yet. It gives us a history, and an even better insight, to the characters than we had before.
