Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Mary Ellis (A Widow's Hope) presents The Lady and the Officer, Book 2 of her new Civil War historical romance series, which tells the stories of brave women and the men who love them.

Serving for a brief time as a nurse after the devastating battle of Gettysburg, Madeline Howard saves the life of Elliot Haywood, a colonel in the Confederate Home Guard. But even though Maddy makes her home in the South, her heart and political sympathies belong to General James Downing, a soldier from the North.

However, Colonel Haywood has never forgotten the beautiful nurse, and when he unexpectedly meets her again in Richmond, he is determined to win her. But while rubbing elbows with army officers and cavalry generals and war department officials in her aunt and uncle's palatial home, Maddy overhears plans for a Confederate attack in northern Virginia. She knows passing along this information may save the life of her beloved James, but at what cost? Can she really betray the trust of her family and friends?

Maddy's heart is pulled between wanting to be loyal to those who care for her and wanting to help the man she believes is on the right side of the conflict. Two men love her. Will her faith in God show her the way to a bright future, or will her choices bring a devastation of their own?

    Mary Ellis in her new book, The Lady and the Officer Book Two in the Civil War Heroines series published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the life of Madeline Howard.

    From the back cover: Love, loyalty and espionagehow does a lady live with all three?

    Serving for a brief time as a nurse after the devastating battle of Gettysburg, Madeline Howard saves the life of Elliot Haywood, a colonel in the Confederate Home Guard. But even though Maddy makes her home in the South, her heart and political sympathies belong to General James Downing, a soldier from the North.

    However, Colonel Haywood has never forgotten the beautiful nurse, and when he unexpectedly meets her again in Richmond, he is determined to win her. But while rubbing elbows with army officers and cavalry generals and war department officials in her aunt and uncles palatial home, Maddy overhears plans for a Confederate attack in northern Virginia. She knows passing along this information may save the life of her beloved James, but at what cost? Can she really betray the trust of her family and friends?

    Maddys heart is pulled between wanting to be loyal to those who care for her and wanting to help the man she believes is on the right side of the conflict. Two men love her. Will her faith in God show her the way to a bright future, or will her choices bring a devastation of their own?

    The Civil War has taken everything she has, her husband, her home, her livelihood. The only option she has left is to leave the North and travel to Richmond Va, the Capital of the Confederacy, to live with her aunt and uncle. Maddy is in love with a Northern General however a Southern Colonel is in love with her. On top of that Maddy overhears war plans for an attack on the North. So she risks everything to get these plans to the General.This is an exciting story with the events of The Civil War being played out as Maddy finds herself in an incredibly dangerous situation. And it is a romance too. This book is a lot of fun and it entertains you as you keep flipping pages as you try to find out what is going to happen next. Ms. Ellis has a great way of telling the story and moving it along at a nice pace. Her characters are wonderful and she gives them life and unique voices. A really enjoyable read.

    I don't typically read books centered around war, but this one caught my attention. I stopped midway through because I was afraid for Madeline, but it kept calling me to finish. I had to know how it turned out. It was good--very good. I liked the sacrifice and love required to produce the satisfying ending.

    I received the above from the author/publisher for the purpose of review. I've given you my honest opinion.

    Historical Novel

    This novel is set in the Ozark Mountains, and by what I have read in other books, it is a great setting if you want to write a book that deals superstitions. Mental health, and Spook-lights are just two of them explored in this book.( I should mention that Spook-light is not just superstition, it is true) The story starts with a shout, as U.S. Marshall Ian Cowley tries to run down the outlaw. Lyric has more than an unusual name to cause her to shy away from the general public, her ill mother, the house they live in and more. Lori Copeland weaves a tale that kept me on edge through out story, reading in long stretches as I followed the people. There were times, as I was reading at night that I looked for the light, so vivid did she write about the things around the characters. And the hole in the barn? Well, I guess you need to read the book to find out about that!

    I received this Ebook free from Harvest House Publishers and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own.

    I've read several of Mary Ellis's books and this one is my favorite so far. A touching depiction of the Civil War from a woman's point of view, it centers on divided loyalties.

    Madeline Howard is a widow, left alone when her Union soldier husband was killed at the beginning of the war. During the battle of Gettysburg, she is rescued by a handsome Union soldier from her burning home. Sparks fly between them that have nothing to do with the fire.

    With little more than the clothes on her back, Madeline makes her way to her closest relatives. . .in the Confederate capitol of Richmond.

    Very enjoyable story with strong, likable characters. I highly recommend this one!

    This book was rather special and personal in a surprising way. I love romantic historical fiction, and so clearly this was a typical selection for me. The fun part for me was the geography referenced in the book. I actually live in Spotsylvania, Virginia near the city of Fredericksburg, just north of Richmond and very close to Culpeper. Author Mary Ellis was spot on in her history and descriptions of the area the characters moved through. I was so absorbed in the story and excited to see my local history come to life.

    Author Mary Ellis tells the story of war widow, Madeline Howard whose husband fought for the Union. As the war creeps into her backyard she is rescued by dashing General James Downing. They quickly form an attachment, but Madeline is forced to find shelter with her only family left in Richmond. It is there she finds herself constantly pulled between the the love of her Confederate family and her loyalty not only her country, but her new found love.

    I loved the quick whit author Mary Ellis gave to Madeline. Fiction with strong female lead characters coupled with real human emotion always appeal to me. This is an excellent read and well worth adding to your must read list. A Lady and the Officer is the second book in the Civil War Heroines Series. This book stands alone, but having enjoyed it so much, I will definitely go back and read the first book.

    This was a perfect read for me, but you need not live here to enjoy it. I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated.
