Spy of Richmond by Jocelyn Green (Book 4)

Here it is!  The final book in the Heroines Behind the Lines series.
Spy of Richmond is another spectacular story about a women that gives everything to help the Civil War come to an end with a Union victory.

From the Back Cover:
When living a lie is the right thing to do.
The Confederate capital in the height of the Civil War: no place for a Union loyalist.  But just the place for a spy.  Her father a slaveholder, her suitor a Confederate officer, and herself an abolitionist, Sophie Kent must walk a tightrope of deception in her efforts to end slavery.  As suspicion in Richmond rises, Sophie's espionage becomes more and more dangerous.  If her courage will carry her through, what will be lost along the way--her true love, her father, her life?


My Review:
Jocelyn Green did a great job portraying the history behind this story, and it was interesting to read the story from the perspective of those living in the South.  It really is amazing that they thought they were doing God's will in enslaving the African Americans, and that the slaves needed masters in their lives in order to have a good life.  Unbelievable! Sophie Kent is one adventurous and determined women.  I liked her character and seeing how she transformed through tough circumstances as a child to give her the courage and backbone to do what was right when she was older. It was fun to see characters from earlier books make an appearance in this final book, and the epilogue to this story does a good job in wrapping up all four of the books by tying their stories together and giving updates on all the characters.  Jocelyn Green has done a fabulous job with this series and I look forward to reading more of her works.  Make sure to pick up this series and add it to your library.  You will be glad you did!

Here is a great video of Jocelyn Green discussing this series in her own words.

My name is Grace, and I'm a blogger at the blog, Fictionally (http://itssimplygrace.blogspot.com/). I'm working with Dawn Crandall, author of "The Everstone Chronicles," by trying to find more book reviewers to review an Advanced Reader's Copy of her upcoming book, "The Cautious Maiden." It is the fourth book in her popular "The Everstone Chronicles," which is a series of Christian historical romances. While this is book four in the series, it can be read as a stand alone. Dawn is an awesome author, and I hope you will consider giving her newest book a try. :-D

Here's a link to the series' Goodreads page:
