On to Richmond is the second in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It's listeners like you who have turned it into a world-wide bestseller. Thank you!
Burdened with the responsibility of running an entire plantation, Carrie Cromwell fights to understand the forces tearing her beloved country apart. As battles rage around her, she watches as her life slowly unravels and she discovers truths she would never have imagined. Will her actions and decisions push her even further from those she loves? When the danger she dreads becomes reality, will she find the courage and strength to escape?

This series was apparently written for a pre-teen audience. The story doesn't advance, the writing is simplistic and repetitive. The author overused phrases throughout such as "a long moment" and dwells on dreams. She attaches twenty first century sensibilities, ideals and values to nineteenth century characters. Overall, the material poor, as was the finished product.
Worse than the material was the narration. Teenage Carrie was given the voice of an old woman. All the male characters sounded alike.
I would NOT recommend this book or series under any circumstances.
I feel like I am living in this series. it is amazing to think this was not very long ago in our history and people believed they had the right to own others. I love each character and their struggle to make the world a better place.
I sure wish this could be made for a TV movie or series. It reminds me of the TV series of the mid 80's by the name North and South starting Kristie Alley and Patrick Swayze, yet I think this one would be even better!!! I have fallen in love with this series and can't get enough of it!!!!!'
Each time a character is in peril, it's so obvious that all will turn out ok, without farther hardship. For stories sake, I think that each character doesn't need to be rescued so quick without further harm. no one has luck this good in real life. I do like the spiritual tones in the series.
Audiobooks are what keep me going in this life. I read approximately 115-140 books per year not counting my 2nd or 3rd reading of books.
Everyone studied the American Civil War in school. Unfortunately, the ability of teachers to explain the tragedy as well as the triumphs without causing most to shut down and fail to grasp why it effects us to this day. Speaking as a Civil War Buff and as recipient of a B.A. in History from Grove City College, Mrs. Dye has done her research well. This wonderful story has us continuing to follow Carrie Cromwell from April 1861 through May 1862. Not only was I transported to the time, but furthermore can feel the Love the author has for God. Carrie has decided to Love God with alls she has and love her neighbor as herself. She is a principled woman and she lives out those principles regardless of the consequences to herself. I wonder if Mrs. Dye spent much time reading James prior to the birth of this story yarn. If you are a Christian, over the age of 12 and have a love for stories that help to show how to apply truth to one's own life ... well this is the series for you. Do make sure that you have read the first book in this series prior to starting this book. Surely, no only will you enjoy a great story but your soul will soar with desire to follow God an trust Him in all things.
