Writing Style
I'm usually not a fan of historical fiction, but I'm always a fan of beautiful writing with characters that steal my heart. This book has just the right mix of facts about the Buffalo Soldiers and black volunteers in the Spanish-American War as well as the horrendous Jim Crow laws that polluted the South for much too long, blended perfectly with an emotional story of faith, forbidden love, and the kind of honor that lives on and on and is never forgotten. Although there's plenty of happiness in this book, it's certainly not all sweetness and light. But the ending is completely satisfying and left my heart filled with hope and joy.
Good Points
Very well researched and historically accurate.
