Publisher's Summary

Honor and conviction clash with loyalty and love in this epic Civil War novel that pits brother against brother. Winner of the coveted John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction, Noble Cause chronicles the clash of a Confederate cavalry officer with a Union spy as they defend their beliefs, their country, and their honor. This book was originally published as Shades of Gray, and now has a new happily-ever-after ending. Called: A riveting piece of historical fiction, by the Midwest Book Review and often compared to Gone with the Wind, Noble Cause takes readers across the rolling hills of Virginia in a page-turning tale of courage and love. Gallantry and chivalry are put to the test when Colonel Alexander Hunter discovers the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect is the Union spy he has vowed to his men he would destroy. With its unique blend of romantic and historical fiction, Noble Cause tells a deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer "transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader's bones." Praised by both men and women, and suitable for teens, this novel captivates and enthralls by telling a classic tale of courage, sacrifice and enduring love. Originally published as Shades of Gray, Noble Cause is the winner of multiple national literary awards.

Loved the print book too.

If you could sum up Noble Cause in three words, what would they be?


What other book might you compare Noble Cause to and why?

Gone with the Wind because it's an in depth, character-driven, Old South storyline.

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


If you could rename Noble Cause, what would you call it?

Honor and Glory
