Faith - Quaker Brides

Faith by Lyn Cote is the third book in the Quaker Brides Series.  The first book in this series was the first book I read by Lyn Cote and I became and instant fan.  I somehow missed the second book (but will be getting it soon) and this third book has reminded me of why I love this author!

Faith Cathwell is on the Civil War battlefield serving as a nurse.  She is holding strong to her faith as a Quaker, but is determined to do her part to fight against slavery and she is hoping to find her dear friend Shiloh, a freeborn girl who was stolen away and sold into slavery.

Faith comes to Colonel Devlin Knight's side and helps save his cousins life.  Now faith is asking Colonel Devlin to return the favor and help her find Shiloh.  Their is a growing attraction between the two and they end up fighting a war with their own hearts in the midst of the battle that is going on around them.

This was such an interesting story and it is very evident that the author did a wonderful job researching history in preparation for this novel.  I enjoyed the love interest between two people that were so different on so many levels.  I am a big fan of the Civil War era and this book bought me right into the front lines of battle and gave a glimpse of the medical side of the Civil War.  I love how Faith stayed true to her faith despite her circumstances and I loved that she used herbs as part of her nursing.

I can't wait to get the 2nd book in this series that I missed and I know if it is anything like the two I have read I won't be disappointed.
