    Missed the depth of character Andrea usually writes. Not a single person exhibited traits I want in a villain, hero, or heroine. Carrie Ann is wishy-washy and went with the best deal available. She gave her heart away with little thought of her husband; though she referenced him as not being dead. Even with the introduction of Margaret the tension that could have come was a 'whatever'. There were interesting parts, to be sure; but this story was disappointing, even with Peyton's last-page arrival.

    Too Deep for Words: A Civil War Novel by Andrea Boeshaar, 2017

    Shenandoah Valley Saga, Book Two

    My Review:

    So many thoughts. To be separated from family ~ far from home with the war between them, not only with distance but with sides drawn. And the remains of my family? My sister, Carrie Ann, married to a Union officer. We have seen the remnants of war continue with the loss of our mother and younger sister.

    Rescued, I am rescued! A man enters the Inn and asks for Miss Margaret Bell. That is me!! At first, I am chagrined wondering if it is in recouping funds he has lost, but no! It is Carrie's husband and he has made a way of escape for me! Release from the man who was behind the loss of all those held dear to me. Well, maybe Carrie Ann and I did have a few struggles with each other, bossy as she can be to me.

    Home. Will she accept me? Being married and all, Carrie may have continued on in her life, wanting no interference from me. But, Peyton said to come, she would be amiss to be left behind.

    Known long before the war between the states, growing up together as children, choosing opposite sides caused the dilemma for whom to trust. Could they be taken at their word, or by their actions? Reading the series in order will give you a fuller aspect in the continuation of history and its events.

    Peyton Collier and Elijah "Eli" Kent are in such a situation as best friends, having gone to academy school together. As their families become intertwined, how much can be shared?

    Missing during battle and reported dead, Eli must put into place the instructions Peyton had assigned him. Protecting Carrie Ann and her sister Margaret, and Peyt's Aunt Ruth was foremost.

    The trials of war on both sides were severe. With the temperature and lack of supplies, exhaustion was also a foe. Homes when available were used for immediate hospitals of the wounded ~ both for their men and prisoners.

    During the war there was a lack of hospital space. Douglas Hospital in Washington DC set up tents for the overflow of the wounded. --author Andrea Boeshaar

    The story ends needing the next page beginning book 3, There is a Season. Letters and descriptions of daily happenings and activities are vivid. Characters adjust within the circumstances circulating socially, politically, and everyday business necessary to carry them forward.

    I would like to know more about Rebekah Kercheval, a character in the background, and hope she will be expanded in the next story.

    This is a continuation of the Shenandoah Valley Saga that began with A Thousand Shall Fall. I enjoyed this story though not quite like the first book. Carrie Ann finds her too sisters and Peyton asks Margaret to join him and Carrie Ann in their home. Peyton then must go to fight again. This story made me cry in many places. It truly shows how many of the women must have felt during this bloody time in our history. I received this book from I blog for Kregel for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    TOO DEEP FOR WORDS continues The Shenandoah Valley Saga that Andrea Boeshaar began in A THOUSAND SHALL FALL. Sisters Carrie Ann and Margaret Jean Bell are reunited when Carrie Ann's new husband (an Union officer) rescues Margaret from her indentured servant position at the Wayfarers Inn. But the two sisters have little time to settle back into a companionable relationship when word comes that another skirmish is happening between Union and Confederates along the Maryland-Virginia border, and within a day, Carrie Ann learns that her husband is missing and presumed dead.

    Like the first book in the series, the plot concentrates not so much on the battles of war, but on the lives of those who have connections on both the South and the North. Eli Kent, a Confederate soldier, who once served in the US Army with Carrie Ann's husband, is one. When he learns that he is the executor over his former friend's estate, he takes secret actions to protect not only his Southern family, but also Carrie Ann who refuses to accept her husband's death.

    I read the A THOUSAND SHALL FALL almost 18 months ago and it took me several chapters of TOO DEEP FOR WORDS to piece together the past actions of Carrie Ann, Margaret, Peyton, and Eli. Current readers should not have that problem because they can move quickly from book one to the next. However, I did feel the ending left lots of room for a third book which would take the readers into a post-war Virginia, a book which is slated for 2018 publication. In this installment, the author has woven in scenes which include historical figures, including General Sheridan and President Lincoln, adding authenticity to the dates of action.

    TOO DEEP FOR WORDS and A THOUSAND SHALL FALL offer stories of promises held, dangerous choices, committed love, and discovered faith against the ever-changing background of a nation at war. I received a copy for review purposes from Kregel publications, and all opinions are mine.

    Too Deep for Words

    By Andrea Boeshaar

    Until I started reading the book I did not realize it was a sequel to A Thousand Shall Fall. To say I was excited is an understatement! The first book was one I thoroughly enjoyed. This one did not disappoint either.

    Once again Ms. Boesharr does an excellent job of portraying the emotions, struggles and lives of those living during the Civil War Era.

    Carrie Ann has found the love of her life with Yankee officer, Peyton Collier. After living a life of deprivation and abuse she finds herself a privileged lady of means.

    Life is near perfect, except for the war. She knows she could lose her husband at any time. After only 19 days as Mrs. Collier, her Peyton is called to deal with small military occurrence promising to be back for breakfast the next day. He never returns and the military reports to her that he is missing in battle and probably dead. Carrie cannot give up the gut feeling that he is alive somewhere. His aunt, her sister and their beloved house keeper try to persuade her to accept the fact he is gone, but she refuses.

    Passionately she begins an exhaustive search of hospitals where wounded men have been taken. Finally there is lead that the soldiers in that battle have been taken to a certain hospital but it is a Confederate one in Virginia. She and her sister travel there on a ruse putting their lives in danger.

    Carries emotions are all over the place and she goes from doubt to certainty her much-loved husband is alive. In the midst of her confusion is her husbands best friend, Eli, a confederate soldier, with whom he appointed executor of his estate should he die. Peyton also ask him to look after Carrie and his family. Eli has always been in love with her and begins to woo her. She is told she is a widow, yet she doesnt feel like one. Should she begin a new life or continue the quest for husband? Should she listen to others or her heart?

    A well written novel filled with suspense, mystery, romance, and characters that draw you into their life. I cannot wait for the sequel!! This book can be read alone but you will definitely want to read the first book!!!!

    I was provided a copy of this book Kregel Publications, with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
