Book Review - Beloved Enemy

Beloved Enemy is written by Al Lacy and is one of the first books in the Battles of Destiny series. This is a novel about the civil war, more specifically about the author's version of the Battle of Bull Run.

Jenny Jordan is the daughter of a Confederate spy but meets and starts to fall in love with Union soldier Buck Brownell. Jenny gets pressured to help the South and agrees to carry information over enemy (Union) lines. She gets caught and Buck is ordered to execute her. Even President Lincoln gets involved in the situation! You'll have to read to the very end to see how it ends.

I think this would be a great read for someone who is a history and/or Civil War buff, who wants to read factual events and characters with a fictional storyline mixed in.

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
