Book Review: A Heartbeat Away

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About A Heartbeat Away:

When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.

Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test---but can betrayal be forgiven?

My Opinion
I was really excited to read A Heartbeat Away because it is about one of my favorite times in history to read about: the Civil War. What a crazy, sad, and heartbreaking time in our country's history for families and friends who are split up and are on different sides fighting for what they believe in. 

This book displayed that heartbreak perfectly and I could feel the pain of Beth and Joe as they fought for and endured the Civil War battles! This book was simply written but tells a beautiful story of hope and faith among the sadness and destruction of the Civil War. 

If you like to read about this time in our country's history, pick up a copy of A Heartbeat Away today!
