Johnny Tom, a Chinese immigrant, is promised American citizenship if he serves with the Union Army. But first he must survive the carnage of battles and rampant racism among the ranks. Desperate to find him, his daughter, Era, becomes a Union spy while nursing soldiers in Confederate camps. She falls in love with Warren, a one-armed cavalryman, and her loyalties become divided between her beloved father in the North and the man who sustains her in the South.

    "Interesting story, fantastic narration"
    What made the experience of listening to The Spy Lover the most enjoyable?

    Todd Haberkorn has a really nice, soothing voice. It was a good contrast to the violent imagery that comes with a Civil War novel.


    What other book might you compare The Spy Lover to and why?

    This is really the first novel of this genre that I've read/listened to.


    Have you listened to any of Todd Haberkorn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've seen a few anime series that he's been in. This was very different from what I'm used to hearing from him, but I was pleasantly surprised.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was one I looked forward to coming back to. Definitely worth listening to.
