Publisher's Description

Amid the dangers of the Civil War, Valerie Fontaine longs to know she is loved and saved. Her father, however, is cold and withdrawn. And their Christian houseguest, the photographer Benjamin McCabe, seems arrogant and judgmental. When Valerie commits her own life to Christ she finds herself drawn to Ben. But her father, against her wishes, is prepared to sell her into a loveless marriage with someone else. Will Valerie be forced to abandon her newfound love? Or will she and Ben, against the backdrop of this country's most ruthless war, become in their own way, unwilling warriors?

Author Bio

Andrea Kuhn Boeshaar is a certified Christian life coach and speaks at writers’ conferences and for women’s groups. She has taught workshops at such conferences as: Write-To-Publish; American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW); Oregon Christian Writers Conference; Mount Hermon Writers Conference and many local writers conferences. Another of Andrea’s accomplishments is co-founder of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) organization. For many years she served on both its Advisory Board and as its CEO.


In Unwilling Warrior by Andrea Boeshaar, young Valerie Fontaine is a woman who comes back to her home in the Deep South after leaving boarding school during the Civil War. While struggling to cope with her mother's death and trying to understand the controversy of slavery and war and political unrest, she meets a handsome photographer, Benjamin McCabe. Valerie and Benjamin's relationship soon blossoms into a romance. But Valerie is shaken when she discovers a conspiracy in her family. They have been secretly working against the Confederates and there is a warrant for her arrest. She is caught in a dilemma: if she stays in the South where her family is wealthy and prosperous, she may have a chance to clear her name, but what good will that do if the South winds up losing the Civil War anyway? However, if she goes North with Benjamin, she will avoid being arrested but she will have to live with a family of very meager funds and very humble accommodations. She opts to go North and Benjamin helps her to escape to his family. Valerie trusts God as she escapes and tries to adapt from her upscale house to the McCabe's small abode.

This story has an array of distinct individuals. Each deals with issues of personal values, national pride, family loyalty, and religious convictions. Boeshaar excellently builds her characters so the readers instantly adore (or hate) them. The dialogue is intriguing and the plot is compelling to follow. The Civil War setting gives the story an interesting dimension that will appeal to young adults and teens. This book would make a great addition to any school, church, or personal library. – Molly Anderson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
