ABOUT THE BOOK
As Sophie's spy network grows, she walks a tightrope of deception, using her father's position as newspaper editor and a suitor's position in the ordnance bureau for the advantage of the Union. One misstep could land her in prison, or worse. Suspicion hounds her until she barely even trusts herself. When her espionage endangers the people she loves, she makes a life-and-death gamble.
Will she follow her convictions even though it costs her everything-and everyone-she holds dear?

Growing up in the heart of the south where stories of the Civil War are still retold with deep southern drawl and conviction, I am very much drawn to books like "Spy of Richmond". As a young girl I wished so much for books that told of what it must have been like as a young woman being in the midst of this time period.
This book focuses on the spy circles that women worked in Richmond, the Libby Prison atrocities, slavery and other historical events of that time.
I appreciated her developing the characters in such a thoughtful way and not relying on historical cliche' stereotypes like so many Civil War books tend to do.
Now I must go back and read the other books in this "Heroines Behind the Lines" series.
Thank you to CFBA for providing this complimentary book for reading and review.
