Overview

North meets South in the second installment of this popular Civil War series

Carrie Ann Collier has been a newlywed for nineteen blissful days--as blissful as life can be in the midst of war, that is. Soon that war will take a toll she never expected. When her new husband, Peyton, goes missing during battle, she refuses to believe he is dead, and must find a way to move forward with everyday life in the face of fear.

As Carrie struggles with how to welcome her estranged sister, Margaret, back into her life, another new arrival appears on her doorstep--her husband's best friend, and rebel officer, Eli. Wounded and bitter, Eli is nonetheless committed to keeping his promise to Peyton: take care of the Collier women, no matter what. But to Carrie, he's a painful reminder of her lost love.

Then unexpected news makes Carrie wonder if miracles do happen. If Carrie infiltrates the enemy once again, she might find out what really happened to the love of her life. Will Eli be able to keep his promise to keep her safe? Can they forgive each other if promises are broken?

As fans of Boeshaar's books have come to expect, Too Deep for Words is a meticulously researched novel. Readers are taken directly into the heart of the realities of the Civil War and reminded how, even in the darkest circumstances, faith in Christ offers hope.

Readers interested in the Civil War will find much to delight in Boeshaars (A Thousand Shall Fall) writing, but would be wise to read the series in order. In this second installment in the Shenandoah Valley Saga, the Civil War has changed newlywed Carrie Ann Colliers life in many ways. Her husband, a Union soldier, is missing in battle. Carrie learns her husband entrusted her care to his best friend, Eli, a Confederate soldier, and when she tries to find out why Eli, and what exactly happened, she finds herself in dangerous territory. She and Eli must come to terms with the new realities war has thrust upon them. Readers who have not read the first book may find themselves abruptly dropped into the story, creating a sense of displacement that is only increased by the frequent point-of-view changes. The plot meanders and characters spend many scenes reacting to more interesting events, slowing the pace dramatically. As a second book in a series, some unresolved plotlines are expected, but the ending creates more frustration than anticipation. (Apr.)
