The Spy Lover is a Thrilling Look Into the Civil War!

The Spy Lover is a Thrilling Look Into the Civil War!

By Amy Lignor

Johnny Tom is a Chinese immigrant who agrees to fight for the Union Army in exchange for American citizenship. On the other side of the coin we have a Confederate cavalryman, Warren Petticomb, who has already lost an arm in battle, and becomes ‘joined’ with Johnny when he falls in love with Johnny’s daughter, Era.

In the beginning…Johnny doesn’t know where his wife and daughter are. Heading into battle, he’s captured and kept as a prisoner of war where he tries his very best to help his other soldier friends. At the start of his military career he fought for the South, but switches to the Union as he hates the concept of slavery. While he fights for the ‘right side,’ he spends all of his time looking for his missing family.

Era Tom, Johnny’s daughter, is a nurse in the Confederacy but spies for the Union Army. She deals with the fact that her mother, an American Indian, was killed by Confederate soldiers and uses her intense hatred of the South to continue her mission. During her tumultuous existence she falls for Warren when she assists in the amputation of his arm, but being loyal to the Union, she soon finds her heart being torn apart. She struggles to understand how she can possibly love a man in a Confederate uniform – her complete and utter enemy – who is the kindest and most loving man she’s ever met. Hence, Era is ‘The Spy Lover.’

This author does a fantastic job presenting the scenery, pain and depth of the Civil War and how it truly split loved ones apart. Sometimes in horrific detail, especially the battle of Gettysburg, this author makes it feel as if the reader is actually on that field experiencing every death. Having these characters based on the very real souls of the author’s own ancestors who came to America during the 1800’s, made the story even more compelling, and is highly recommended.

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy

Finding Relaxation in the Most Remote Locations of All

    Finding Relaxation in the Most Remote Locations of All by Amy Lignor   It is a fact that the largest travel locations are also beyond popular. Among the downsides of this fact is that when you’re looking for peace, quiet, and basically a chance to do nothing more than spend time with yourself and, perhaps, one other best friend, the most popular places don’t offer that. In other words, it is the most remote (sometimes most … [Read More its Good for You...]
