With This Pledge

War is brutal, savage, horrific. The Civil War was the bloodiest war waged in America. Over 600,000 men lost their lives during this conflict. The South could not match the numerical strength of the North. This war was complex, affecting more than the men who died. 

Tamera Alexander has written an historical novel recounting the battle of Franklin Tennessee. She captures the account from the real life letters written between Captain Roland Jones and Miss Elizabeth Clouston. Ms. Alexander masterfully weaves their love story in the midst of this tragic Battle of Franklin and all that it entails. Her attention to detail is well researched.

If you love historical fiction, you will enjoy this well written and engaging novel. It's a powerful story capturing the horrors of war, and the hope of man.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
