A Rebel Spy - Anne Greene

A rebel spy by Anne Greene
Was glad I won a copy of this because I like the way the author writes. I don't even know what the book is about and know it will be a good read.
Starts out with Sophia and she's been detained and she's now in front of the general and he's agreed to send her home but next time she's caught she will be hung.
He thinks she's a spy so she'll have to be more careful with all the military in town.
Major Brent escorts her home to her family house. He is so taken with her dimples as she smiles, holding her arm in his.
She is able to hide her gun in her crocheted purse and the maid keeps it hidden out of sight.
Love that this 1860 story is focused around the Shenandoah Valley, which we have visited.
Story also follows the major and how he survives the war and living in town, laundering and eating. She is helping at the hotel, serving meals to the troops.
On her travels you are also learning not only of the locations but the history of the events during the war.
Women were strong as they were the ones doing the house/farm chores as the men were fighting.
She is not sure who helped save her as they were cloaked in black-her angel but she doesn't know who it was.
So scared for her but she is so strong. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.
