Faith – Book Review

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

If you enjoy reading Christian historical fiction with a hint of romance set during America’s Civil War, then Faith by Lyn Cote is the book for you. Faith, the third book in Lyn’s Quaker Bride series, follows Blessing and Honor.

Set in 1863, Faith follows Quakeress, Faith Cathwell, as she and her freeborn friend, Honroree, join a troop of General Grant’s Union soldiers in their campaign in the Western Theater as volunteer nurses. They hope traveling with the army will place them in a position to locate Honoree’s sister, Shiloh, also freeborn, who was kidnapped by slave catchers five years earlier.

Although they share differing views, as the months go by and the battles and war injuries continue, Faith reaches out to Colonel Devlin Knight for help in her search through Confederate territory for Shiloh .

Through the lives of her compelling cast of characters, Lyn Cote weaves a fascinating tale of love, honor, faith, and loss which I highly recommend.
