Beloved Enemy by Al Lacy
Jenny's allegiance lay with the Confederate Army. But her heart belonged to the enemy. Faithful to her family and the land of her birth, young Jenny Jordan covers for her father's Confederate spy missions. But as she grows closer to handsome Union soldier Buck Brownell. Jenny finds herself torn between devotion to the South and her feelings for the man she is forbidden to love. Overwhelmed by pressure to assist the South, Jenny agrees to carry critical information over enemy lines. But when she is caught in Buck Brownell's territory, will he follow orders to execute the beautiful spy or find a way to save his Beloved Enemy?
A great book for fans of the Civil War, plenty of fighting and an overall good story about a soldier from the north falling in love with a woman (who just happens to be a spy) from the south, not only is there love but also suspense so there is something for all.
This was the first book by Lacy I've read and it was pretty good.
Al Lacy is a good storyteller and I rate Beloved Enemy 4 stars. This book was generously provided by Waterbrook Press in exchange for a review.
