Review by: Sitt Elhosn on Feb. 09, 2013 :
I didn't like the beginning of the story very much, but there is some truth in one's saying never to judge a workpiece beforehand by having read just a few pages. The story evolved into a really nice romantic story that I enjoyed reading from half the book on. It is based on an American novel held between at time of the post civil war in the south between Knoxville, Nashville and Memphis. Virginia Genny Romayne leaves her home-escaping from a marriage her father has chosen but she herself doesn't want to go through. In the note she left her parents writing she married another man and left with him. Arriving in Nashville she puts her status as a widow, so no one will ask any further questions. She gets employed as a secretary and nurse for the doctor in town, after a while both fall in love and marry. As in all relationships misunderstandings of crucial moments in life makes it painful for those who don't speak about it in a common sense and just try to punish others and getting punished themselves for this, is no solution. Got interested, I did. A little drama is always entertaining and it's worth the reading just to see how the story turns.

Review by: Avid Reader on Nov. 15, 2010 :
Many people have forgotten or overlooked the unseen enemy that came after the advent of the Civil War because "it" wasn't a nationwide crisis. Although I enjoyed the chapters leading up to the main action, I was riveted by the ungodly sights, sounds and smells that came from your telling of this horrific period in the history of Memphis, Tennessee. Having verified for myself some of the factual information included in your novel, I really appreciate the way you wove the historical facts around your characters. It made me want to read more about this event/time period, which I have begun doing through links on your website. Good luck with your writing!
