Faith, the final installment in the Quaker Brides series, was a wonderfully deep and moving book and provided the perfect ending to the series. If you have not read the other books, Faith can stand alone. But, it is really worth it to read the whole series and see how the stories all weave together and learn how everything connects in the end.
I loved this book! It was so interesting to watch as Faith and Honoree nursed the wounded and to hope that Colonel Devlin Knight made it through each battle that he faced. The author slowly led me through each scene, making me feel more and more connected to these complex people in this amazingly scary and difficult time. The characters had inner struggles to work through and goals they were trying to achieve. Learning what to give over to God was not easy for some.
I loved the way this story and series wrapped up. It left me with a great respect for what people on both sides of the Civil War went through, yet hopeful for this family as they faced the years to come. I highly recommend this book and series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:

But with a gift for nursing, Faith seizes this opportunity to join the fight for abolition–and to search for Shiloh, a freeborn childhood friend who was kidnapped and sold south by unscrupulous slave catchers.Knowing it’s much too dangerous for her to search enemy territory alone, Faith enlists the help of Colonel Devlin Knight, who is indebted to her for saving his cousin’s life. A career soldier, Dev is committed to the preservation of the Union but conflicted about freeing his own slave and confidant, who plans to enlist as soon as Dev gives him manumission papers.Blazing a trail east with the rest of Grant’s army, Dev and Faith fight their personal battles–and a growing attraction to each other. When beliefs clash and passions flare, they quickly find that the only thing more dangerous than the war surrounding them is the battle within their hearts.
