About the Book
A story of love, hope, and healing set in the midst of the Civil War
Nineteen-year-old Carrie Ann Bell is independent and spirited. The only thing she really fears are the Union soldiers fighting against her Confederate friends. When her youngest sister runs away from home, brave Carrie Ann is determined to find her and bring her back. Disguised as a soldier, she sets off–only to find she’s fallen into the hands of the enemy.
Her childhood friend Confederate Major Joshua Blevins has warned her against these Yankees: they’re all devils, ready to inflict evil on unsuspecting young women. When Colonel Peyton Collier arrests her for her impersonation of an officer, it seems to confirm all her fears.
Soon, though, she finds herself drawn to the handsome, gallant colonel. He rescued her, protected her, and has been every inch the gentleman. Carrie Ann discovers that her foe has become her ally–and more than that, someone she could love. But the arrival of Joshua in the Union camp as a spy will test her loyalties. Will she protect someone who has been like family or be loyal to this stranger to whom she wants to offer her heart? When her world is being torn apart around her, whom should she trust?
Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, A Thousand Shall Fall is framed around compelling characters and a very romantic setting in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Andrea Boeshaar’s extensive research guarantees historical accuracy and romance genre enthusiasts and Civil War buffs alike will enjoy the Christian perspectives on actual historical events.

Book one in Andrea Boeshaar’s Shenandoah Valley Saga, A Thousand Shall Fall: a Civil War Novel, was a delight and a historical fiction reader’s dream. Taking place during the American Civil War, the war between the states, this novel was thoroughly researched with rich, knowledgeable, and pertinent information pertaining to the wonderful story. Delightful characters also enhance the story. Romance, history, and adventure fill this page-turning, charming novel. Readers will greatly anticipate the second novel in this series, Too Deep for Words, releasing in November of 2016. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy the deep American history and enjoy reading about the Civil War.
