    1 thought on “Gone for a Soldier”

    1. I wrote this book, so naturally, I'm going to say I love it. That's a fact. It took me a lot longer to write than I thought it would, and it's longer than I imagined it would be, but the story was large, and had to live up to the stupendous cover. I hope you will find it a satisfactory read.Here's the book description:"Rulon Owen loves two things more than life--his country and Mary Hilbrands."When Virginia secedes from the Union, Rulon enlists, and finds himself fighting foes both in battle and [...]

    2. Set against the back drop of the Civil War, GONE FOR A SOLDIER focuses on Rulon’s love story with Mary Hilbrands and his experience of war, but it is also the story of his entire family as they are impacted by the ravages of war. My favorite characters in this book are the women, who all faced and rose to their challenges. So inspiring!Marsha has a way of writing solid characters, that are true to the habits and customs of their time period, without making them too much of a stretch for our mo [...]

    3. I laughed, I cried, and then cried some more. It took me a while to finish this book because it pulled me out of this world, and made it difficult to complete my motherly-duties. I highly recommend this book. Historical fiction at its finest!

    4. Marsha Ward is a new to me author, having only read one of her short stories prior to this book, and I was happy to be asked to read and review this Civil War novel as my reading has focused on this era a lot lately. Based on a wonderful monolog by a docent on a recent visit to the Lotz House in Franklin, Tennessee, I believe Marsha Ward did a marvelous job of capturing the horrors of the sights, sounds, smells and privations of the Civil War. I must admit, while not at all inappropriate in her [...]

    5. The story of the Owens family and the events that their lives encountered during the war. Their lives were torn apart and deaths to deal with. And in the end the South lost to the North. Lives had to go on. I received a free copy and voluntarily reviewed.

    6. Part war story, part love story, “Gone for a Soldier” features a range of characters (11 members of the Owen family, plus a few love interests and fellow soldiers), with each chapter rotating between different characters’ perspectives. Rulon Owens, the central figure, moves quickly to enlist in the war after Virginia secedes from the Union — but not before asking for the hand of Mary Hillbrands. Off at war, Rulon sees and feels it all — his tent-mate threatens him regularly, he aches t [...]

    7. I think I learned more about the civil war in this novel than I ever did in school. (Says something about how they taught history more than a few years ago.) And I loved that it was from the point of view of southerners - not the evil-slave-owning-plantation-masters, but real families who believe in their country as much as the northerners.The book is told through several points of view, from soldiers who are off fighting for their country, to wives and mothers and daughters left at home to fend [...]

    8. I felt this was a terrible book. The writing style was very amateurish. It was about the Civil War and a family of sons many sent to fight, including the father. The author resorted to giving the historical information in the form of letters passed back and forth. Mostly this story was about sex. Wanting sex, missing sex, thinking about sex, having sex while healthy and having sex while sick or disabled. No language, lots of talk of sex, lots of war violence.

    9. I don't understand, this is the prequel to an series I loved, and yet I didn't like I at all. Such formal language and the portrayal of a God that is so rigid and demanding and spiteful, which I don't agree with at all
