Faith (Quaker Brides) by Lyn Cote

Book Description:  The Civil War battlefield is the last place Quakeress Faith Cathwell thought she’d find herself. But with a gift for nursing, Faith seizes this opportunity to join the fight for abolition―and to search for Shiloh, a freeborn childhood friend who was kidnapped and sold south by unscrupulous slave catchers.

Knowing it’s much too dangerous for her to search enemy territory alone, Faith enlists the help of Colonel Devlin Knight, who is indebted to her for saving his cousin’s life. A career soldier, Dev is committed to the preservation of the Union but conflicted about freeing his own slave and confidant, who plans to enlist as soon as Dev gives him manumission papers.

Blazing a trail east with the rest of Grant’s army, Dev and Faith fight their personal battles―and a growing attraction to each other. When beliefs clash and passions flare, they quickly find that the only thing more dangerous than the war surrounding them is the battle within their hearts.

My Thoughts:  I love stories by Lyn Cote!  I love the way she brings ideas to life with swords.  I'm also ready to read something a little different...so I was excited to receive, Faith.
This is book 3 in the Quaker Brides trilogy.  I missed Honor and Blessing.  Of course, I will be going back to read those two in the near future.
Faith as you may have guessed is the name of a young woman.  Faith Cathwell is a Quaker.  One of the Friends.  Even though Quakers are peace loving, Faith decides to help in the battle fray.  
Faith has a gift for nursing and she wants to help those in the Civil War battle.  But she also has another reason for going to the battlefield.  She is searching for a childhood friend, Shiloh, who was kidnapped by slave catchers and sold to southerners.
Of course, Faith will need help in this dangerous search...enter Colonel Devlin Knight. 
I loved this read....romance, intrigue and faith!  
Don't miss this wonderful stand alone historical read!
