As her beloved city of Richmond is transformed into a deadly Civil War battlefield, spirited Carrie Cromwell puts her medical skills to work in a Confederate hospital. While she fights to save unknown soldiers, the one she cares about the most is lost to her when Robert disappears in battle. She must also deal with a family secret that has finally come to light.
Meanwhile, Rose and Moses have found freedom at last - only to be separated by war. Can Moses, now a Union spy, elude those who are searching for him as a runaway slave, and also help those he thought he would never see again?
Rose, inspired by a revolutionary young speaker, becomes a teacher in the contraband camps.
The third book of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You'll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free and slave, Southern and Northern - and you'll fall in love with every character.

other than a bit of improper English mixed with some very proper English (ending sentences with prepositions such as "for" ( "Carrie longed for rather than "for that which Carrie longed") it was well written
I enjoyed the story and the narrator is generally good. But enough with the singing. I fast forwarded over most of it. Wasn't a problem in the first two books but this time, she has found her voice. Unfortunately
The narrative Is so beautifully done, love when she breaks into song. Very nice voice taking on the characters excellently. I really have a picture in my mind of how life was for the different people and classes during the civil war period. The characters really grow on you. you can't wait to hear about each. I am so happy to see good religious values and the reference to life situations. Love scenes are handle very appropriately, very refreshing compared to many other books of today. This is good wholesome reading. Cannot wait to start the book 4 in 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.
Many series start out well in the first book but by the third in the series you start to Lose intrest in the characters. This most certainly does not apply to the Bregdan Chronicles. Not only does the author continue to build on Carrie's story, but Thomas, Robert Moses, and Rose all face their own human failings and learn from them. This is truly a tapestry and each chapter adds more detail to the design. New characters are introduced and they have a major impact on Robert and Carrie. The hardships of the war seem only to get worse through this story, but the ugly poison of hate within the human soul is the real epidemic. Hating people because of what has been done to you really ongly causes ourselves more problems. Poison of hate doesn't just exist in white men but all races. Though the winter of 1863 seemed like it would never end, the promise that Carrie Cromwell depends on to make it through is that Spring will come. The narrator of this series is very good. I don't normally expect the narrator to sing, but she does a very good job. Her singing voice is very plesent and even when she sings in character it just fits. This series is fabulous. So what are you waiting for? This is work a credit.
These books that Ginny Dye's written are the best books that I have ever read. I can't hardly wait from one book to the next. I would love to see them put together & make a movies from them.
The spiritual and moral growth of the main character is wonderful. Again, audible only has the first three books of the series. Would appreciate the last three books.
