- Torn Apart By War by Maureen on 7/15/2013
I have just finished this awesome book, and glad there is another to come! We meet real people in a real war, the Civil War. A war fought in our country, we meet it with real faces and trials.
Two young people who have been torn apart by the North and South...a fight that the principals of which neither agree, except for the right of States to control their own destiny, and not the Federal Government. Both are worried that the other has forgotten them. Manfred Whitman who is in a Northern prison when the book opens, and Sallie Dryer who is living with the reality of her actions during Northern occupation in Louisiana.
Manfred and his brother Edward were captured in the battle of Nashville, and have spent months without being able to notify their loved ones. When they are released, they can't wait to get home, but it is a long way from Point Lookout, Maryland to St Francisville, Louisiana. To begin with they are traveling on foot, can't even imagine. We journey with them to their unknown future. We meet some very interesting a wonderful people, also some very scary, but God really seems to have them in his hands.
Where Sallie faith seems to have wavered, so much happens to try and bring her back in the fold. Manfred on the other hand has held on to his God, and what happens to Edward and him on their way is so heart warming. Love it!! They happen into the right place at the right time.
Don't miss this one!!
