    1. "The things she’d said felt nothing like innocent deceptions; they felt instead like wicked lies.Memphis, 1862. The Randolph men are off fighting for the Confederates and Charlotte is home minding the family mansion and her younger brother Alexander. Believing the Randolph home to be deserted, the Union soldiers take possession for use as a headquarters. Charlotte flees with Alexander, but her older brother convinces her to return so she can spy for them. Charlotte does her best to bat her eye [...]

    2. The civil war took its toll on everyone, Charlotte was no exception. Growing up in the south was the only thing she knew until the union soldiers invaded her town, along with them the injured captain. While her feelings were changed so was her mind. I loved the characters in this book and I especially love reading about anything that has to do with the civil war. This book was a very good characterization of what people had to go through and what life was like being on both sides. Charlotte was [...]

    3. I have sort of mixed feeling about this book. It was interesting & engrossing enough that I read it all the way through in one sitting, yet I doubt i'd ever want to read it again. Plus I realized afterwards, I didn't really like the characters. It wasn't exactly poorly written, though most of the story was slightly slow. Then at the end there's a very fast string of coincidences before an abrupt, anti-climactic conclusion. Occasionally there were little jumps as if a scene or conversation wa [...]

    5. An insightful look at a woman caught between family loyalty, history, and knowledge, and a growing awareness that deceptions are never innocent during war. This book is an emotional look at the life of a young woman, raised on a southern plantation after the Civil war breaks out and the males of her family all enlist in the Confederate army. The progression of the heroine's understanding of the concept of slavery is masterfully illustrated. This is not an innocent book however- sex and sexuality [...]

    6. I suppose my own expectations kept me from fully enjoying this book. It is set in Memphis in the days just after the Naval battle led to its occupation by Union soldiers. Having lived in Memphis for 11 years, I was excited to read historical fiction set in this time and place. Aside from a few mentions of the grand street of houses and one brief scene at the Mississippi River, the story takes place almost entirely in the protagonist's home, and could have been set anywhere in the south.Otherwise [...]

    8. Very enjoyable bookI liked all the characters, the story line and everything about this book. I had a hard time putting it down. I finished it in three days! This is not my usual genre of reading material and I was very happy with this as my choice for a break. I am going to choose another of her books now.

    9. This was a decent read, but I think it'll just be another forgotten book. The main character faces many hardships & traumas, but there was nothing heart wrenching or tear jerking. The ending felt a little too abrupt & I was thankful for the epilogue.

    10. I typically do not go for historical set suring the Civil War but I did like the characters. I, for the most part. part about their struggles and feelings. It was a happily ever after (which I like).
