Songs of the Shenandoah By Michael K. Reynolds

At the onset of the Civil War, Seamus heeds his wife’s wishes to return to her beloved family farm in the South, where he takes a post as chaplain for General Stonewall Jackson’s brigade. As Seamus ministers to the troops, his sister Clare ministers in a different way—by being a powerful voice in the Northern cause toward freeing the slaves. All this while their youngest brother Davin, who became wealthy during the Gold Rush, struggles to find love and identity in a fallen world. It’s a clash of loyalties and beliefs that threaten the entire family, each of them trying to hear God’s encouragement in the midst of the tragedy of war. The dramatic conclusion to the acclaimed Heirs of Ireland Series.

You do not want to miss the conclusion to the Heirs of Ireland. The whole series was fantastic.
Well Michael has done it again, he has wrote a fantastic book that I could not put down.
Of course you do not want to start this book if you have only a short time to read, it is one of those books that you can not put down once you start reading. Make sure that you have plenty of reading time.
I recommend this book. I gave this book 5 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
