I've been a huge Lynn Austin fan. The authenticity, solid research, and strong foundation in faith make her novels standouts among my other listens. I really appreciated her thoughtful portrayal of the post-Civil War experiences and the struggle of the genteel southerners to accept and move-on.
Ms. Austin's characters are always extremely well developed. The characters who carry the message of faith are realistic and have struggled with the same issues as the characters attempting to make it through life without that solid faith. I love her strong female characters. They are always strong and challenged in believable ways.
I think Josephine's bravery and willingness to find a way to get a message to the government agent was a very compelling scene.
I would really like to meet Lizzie and Eli to hear firsthand of their struggles and challenges.
I did my best to read Lynn Austin's books in historical order. They provide an excellent opportunity to experience the events that shaped our lives today.
