Faith (Quaker Brides #3) by Lyn Cote
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.

If you enjoy books about the Civil War, this one brings you right on to the battlefield. We also spend a lot of time in the medic tent, tending to the wounded and dying.
We meet the good and the bad of the doctors who take care of these men, and we meet Faith Cathwell and Honoree who are on a mission to find their captured and sold sister. They are also well-trained nurses, who are better than some of the doctors here.
They are also on a mission to find Shiloh, a freeborn woman and sister who was captured and sold south. These women are in the war to try and find Shiloh as they travel south with the Union army.
Now Faith is a Quaker and a pacifist, her family has helped runaway slaves, and is there to find her family and help the wounded, but God has placed a military man in her path, Col Devlin Knight.
So in the mist of war and looking for there loved one both women are about to find romance, but will any of them survive to even live beyond this horrible war. The author has done a tremendous amount of research, and it shows in the excellent, page turning book, that I didn’t want to put down.
I received this book through the Publisher Tyndale House, and was not required to give a positive review.
