Product Description

Sentry Dance Pickett has watched, helpless, for months as conditions in the camp worsen by the day. He knows any mercy will be seen as treason. Southern belle Violet Stiles cannot believe the good folk of Americus would knowingly condone such barbarism, despite the losses they've suffered. When her goodwill campaign stirs up accusations of Union sympathies and endangers her family, however, she realizes she must tread carefully. Confederate corporal Emery Jones didn't expect to find camaraderie with the Union prisoner he escorted to Andersonville. But the soldier's wit and integrity strike a chord in Emery. How could this man be an enemy? Emery vows that their unlikely friendship will survive the war-little knowing what that promise will cost him.

    This review was written for The Sentinels of Andersonville.
    This was hard to put down. What these men went through was horrific. If you are faint of heart you may not want to read. I knew how bad it was supposed to be but never knew it was that bad.it is hard to understand how people in a town right next to this place could let this happen. The characters in this from both sides of the war are well done. I received a copy of this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    This book had me enthralled right to the end. From the way the characters were developed and the way they interacted with each other to the way the plot just kept getting better!!! Usually, halfway through the book, you can guess the outcomes, but this book had me guessing right to the end. Add to this some historical lessons that were presented in perfect detail.

    I can count on one hand the authors that have such a compelling way of telling stories that hook me and keep me turning pages well into the night. This is the first Tracy Groot novel that I read, but it definitely won't be the last.

    EXCELLENT READ!!

    This review was written for The Sentinels of Andersonville.
    "The Sentinels of Andersonville" was a great read. I was consistently horrified by the atrocities that one human will commit against another. The amount of men that died in prison during the war that was recorded in this book was so huge that I am saddened by the lives that were lost unneccessarily. What this book taught me is that no matter how much you are in the minority, as long as you are doing something right, you will come out able to hold your head up in the end. The Sentinels of Andersonville really made me take a different look at the war. I think for the most part, most men didn't want to fight, but they were forced into it by others saying they must do their duty to either the South or the North.

    I honestly enjoyed this book. I had trouble putting it down as I wanted to find out what happened not only to the men in the prison, but to the townspeople that were trying to help them.

    I recevied a free copy of this book from The Book Club Network for my honest review. I was not payed for my positive review.

    This review was written for The Sentinels of Andersonville.
    The Sentinels of Andersonville is a book that will make the reader explore a variety of emotions. Tracy Groot writes a book so powerful and impacting, it should be in every history class across America. Until Id read the book, Id never even heard of Andersonville and now its a place in history, Ill never forget.

    Taking from actual historical events and combining them with a fictional story of several brave men and women, Tracy Groot tells the tale of Lew, Dance and Violet, just to name a few.

    When Emery Jones and Lew Gann find themselves at a standoff, they start talking. They talk themselves right into a friendship, although its quickly ending as Emery must arrest Lew and take him to Andersonville. Thinking the rumors cannot possibly be true, Emery is aghast when he delivers Lew over to Andersonville. Though a huge area, the ground is packed with starving, dying menthousands of them. At that moment, Emery regrets following his orders and vows to free Lew, somehow, someway.

    Dance Pickett is a guard at Andersonville Prison and the son of a prominent lawyer. Daily he witnesses things he must pretend not to know but those secrets are weighing on him and his only release is in being with Violet Stiles and her family. Being at their home helps him to face his daily torturous assignment. Dance finds himself drawn to Violet, not only for her beauty but for her strong spirit and conviction. In a powerful conversation between Dance and Dr. Stiles, the two discuss the huge task of fixing the horrible events at Andersonville and stopping the evil therein. Dance struggles to know where to begin with so many dying and so few people caring enough to stand up for what is right. Doctor Stiles gives a powerful statement and in it he says, It has nothing to do with a people rising up, but a person. One person, just one. (pg. 246)

    When Violet accidently comes upon Andersonville Prison, she witnesses the atrocities and vows to do something to change what is being done to the men there. Violet manages to draw her whole family into the fight including her father, a doctor at Andersonville. Before she knows it, shes managed to make her family the target of the authorities and they are accused of being traitors to the South. The people of Americus argue that to feed these enemies is to forgive them. (pg. 233)

    The Sentinels of Andersonville is a book that has forever changed me. It raises questions beyond my reasoning of how something so atrocious was allowed in America. But the story must be told and Tracy Groot does a fantastic job of doing so. This is an absolute must read. This book is so powerful no, its beyond powerful...it's haunting.

    This review was written for The Sentinels of Andersonville.
    The Sentinels of Andersonville is Tracy Groots powerful fictionalized account of the rebel prison in Andersonville, Georgia during the final months of the Civil War. The reception those Union POWs saw could never be confused with Southern hospitality. Most of the Rebels assigned to work at Andersonville Prison cared little for the Union soldiers housed there. It was a job, an undesirable assignment. Yet some, whether clergy or healthcare workers, volunteered services that couldnt make a dent in the needs of thousands of injured, ill, and/or malnourished POWs and believed in their calling to do so. Those who spoke against the atrocities such as starvation and lack of any protection from elements were branded as sympathizers and risked themselves and their family members. Some refused to count the cost and did what they could to scrape together literally gauze for wounds, fruit, foods that were often turned away at the gates.

    A few of the guards began to see some of those imprisoned were just like them, men with families, perhaps wives and children, and the desire to one day return home to care for their family. The guards saw, and could not forget, the horrors from rotting flesh to victimization at the hands of fellow prisoners. And some vowed to do what they could to help, even if it was to save even one life from the thousands. Even if it meant treason, even if it cost their own life unless their loved ones were able to rescue them on time.

    Through her extensive research and clear, impassioned writing, Tracy Groot shows how the light of God is seen in those individuals willing to risk everything to return even one POW to his family. Her characters are outstanding and three-dimensional, men and women of courage and grit.

    This has educated me regarding the parts of the Civil War I had not thought about previously, whether there were POWs and how they were treated. I didnt expect the red carpet to be rolled out, but reasonable wound care and food I thought were the least they could be given until reading about the horrors of Andersonville. Where I tended to think of the prison in shades of grey, Tracy Groot brings colors to light through those who chose to give what they could to relieve one persons suffering. It is a historical work that stays with the reader long after the last page is turned, begging to be read again, and show future generations a piece of the past that should never be repeated.

    I highly recommend this work of literature to those who appreciate historical fiction of the Civil War era that presents well-researched facts. It is also for those who want to serve, and are trying to discover the lemon or the wagon load of lemons that they have to give. It is a rousing encouragement to each reader, personally, to do what we can for others, whether or not it is a popular or favored cause or the calling that the Lord places on our heart.

    I received a copy of this book through the For Readers Only group at The Book Club Network, in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
