Full of action and suspense, and many multi-faceted characters and an intriguing plot. It took awhile at first to reacquaint myself with the characters, and what had happened between books, but after a few chapters I was hooked.
Thaddeus Lane was one of my favorite characters, he is now in his eighties, still active in the Culpers and the grandfather of Marietta. He is a man of faith and sensitivity to the Spirit's moving, and he comes to Mari's aid more than once.
Marietta Hughes is a beautiful widow, who knows how to use her God-given gifts to her advantage. She is headstrong and determined to do things her own way.
Slade Osborne was probably the hardest to read, he has his secrets and he keeps them well. Slade is and enigmatic hero, who is honorable to the core.
This story takes place in Baltimore during the Civil War. The setting is realistic and gives off a real feel for the times. Many parts of the story are based on actual history, which I found intriguing.
I appreciated the reverence for God in this book and the way that their faith was woven into the story. This is a well written read, with a multi-layered plot full of twists and turns. This book had it all, action, suspense, rich history, and romance, with plenty of great interactions between the characters. Definitely a book well worth the read!
