    A challenging book to read in some ways, as the main characters in some ways the "perfect" Christians. It made me do some self-evaluation about my own life, which can be difficult in spite of being necessary and good. Another quick, simple, and enjoyable read.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I liked this book a whole lot more than the last one. Although once again I was a little annoyed with a statement made; "Southerners' hatred of black men was so extreme and irrational, I had to fight against hating the Southerners myself." It seems to me that it's stretching it a bit to say that Southerners as a whole hated black men. There were good Southerners. What about the people on the Underground Railroad, which was mainly in the SOUTH? So this I was unimpressed with. I really liked the pa I liked this book a whole lot more than the last one.

All the things she remembered were neat, and her change of heart was encouraging to my spiritual life.

    I read this book way back in 1993/94, it took along time. But it was worth the read!! Very good, I loved how the couple met, how he found her, and how they got engaged was awesome!!! Loved the whole story!

    My favorite of the journal's so far! I love how Corrie is growing up. This novel it's rich with history, intrigue, and relationship. I always enjoy her times of spiritual growth and discovery.

    This was another very good book in this series. It followed the end of the Civil War, which held a lot of interest. Some of the book dragged a bit.

    Read during the era of "whatever was on mom's shelf was allowed" and I recall liking them at the time. Not sure why now. Read during the era of "whatever was on mom's shelf was allowed" and I recall liking them at the time. Not sure why now.

    What a ride it was again! Not only does Michael R Phillips do serious historical research and development, but he is also well versed in relationship issues of the spiritual and temporal range and especially how they affect each other. This book covers the end of the Civil War and Corrie maturing enough to know that God is enough. What I want to know from the author is how he gets in the head of a 20-year-old woman and knows what she's dealing with? You're going to want to read this one, and may What a ride it was again!

What I want to know from the author is how he gets in the head of a 20-year-old woman and knows what she's dealing with? You're going to want to read this one, and maybe back up to the first book and reread the whole series. I have found that I have matured a lot as a Christian reading all that the author puts into the series.

    I enjoyed this book. It is the continuing story of Corrie’s two years away from home. She spends time involved in the Civil War, fundraising and working with the Sanitary Commission and the Sisters of John Seventeen, all who worked with injured soldiers. During this time she recovers from a serious wound and is nursed back to health by a man and his landlady. It is clear the man will eventually become her husband. This is also the time when Lincoln is assassinated. All of which leads to her matu I enjoyed this book. It is the continuing story of Corrie’s two years away from home.

    Another great episode I'm already searching for the next book... That should tell you enough to get you reading. This book was a little more repetitive than the others but I've still enjoyed the inspiration and the great story. Another great episode I'm already searching for the next book...
