#BookReview: In His Eyes by Stephenia H. McGee

18 Jun

In His Eyes captivated me from beginning to end! The Civil War era is one of my favorites, so I relished the time period of this novel. Written with imagery and emotion, the historical events woven through the narrative bring Ella’s story to life. Brimming with drama and intrigue, I loved this wonderfully told romance and am eager to read more from Stephenia H. McGee!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

 

About the book:

Ella Whitaker rescues a newborn from the dying arms of a woman of ill repute and at long last she has someone to love. In need of a wet nurse, she arrives at Belmont Plantation just as Federal soldiers demand to speak to the owner. Thinking quickly, Ella masquerades as a Yankee officer’s widow in order to have a roof over her head and a home for the child.

Major Westley Remington has dedicated his life to serving his country. The Civil War has divided his family, torn his thoughts of glory, and left him with a wound that may never heal. Westley returns home on medical furlough to settle his father’s estate at Belmont Plantation, only to find his home is being run by a fiery and independent woman—one many believe to be his wife. Now he is faced with a conflict he’s never been trained to fight, and one she has yet to conquer.

    I really love reading within the Civil War era. It just seems so sweeping and epic. Although I imagine the scenes were not as pleasant. I am reading a Vietnam War romance right now called The Big Buddha Bicycle Race by Terence Harkin. It’s very good, that era is not at all pleasant, but this book sheds a different light on it.
