The Lady and the Officer (Civil War Heroines #2)The Lady and the Officer by Mary Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've read several of Mary Ellis's books and this one is my favorite so far. A touching depiction of the Civil War from a woman's point of view, it centers on divided loyalties.

Madeline Howard is a widow, left alone when her Union soldier husband was killed at the beginning of the war. During the battle of Gettysburg, she is rescued by a handsome Union soldier from her burning home. Sparks fly between them that have nothing to do with the fire.

With little more than the clothes on her back, Madeline makes her way to her closest relatives. . .in the Confederate capitol of Richmond.

Very enjoyable story with strong, likable characters. I highly recommend this one!
