Their Daring Hearts- Sharlene MacLaren

Josephine Winters felt driven to enlist in the Union Army.  But there is a problem: she is a girl.  This doesn't stop her!

Levi is a Quaker.  But he had a calling to enlist in the Army.

Both felt that GOD was calling them to do more in their lives.  Because of this they met under grueling circumstances...but Levi met Josephine as Gordon Snipp.

Their relationship developed from friendship and their faith in GOD.

I loved this story. It was a quick page turner.  I love historical books and this did not disappoint.

This is a book of fiction based on history.  There were women who served in the Civil War disguised as men.  It is hard to imagine but they were driven to serve, an example of this is Sarah Edmonds aka Frank Thompson.

I received this free to review.
