Charlie Garrett, sharpshooter in the 25th Virginia infantry, has a secret. She is a female named Charlotte who followed her husband, Josh, into the Confederate army. It is hard work to keep from being discovered, but Charlie wants to be sure that Josh is kept safe.
Charlie crosses paths several times with Captain Daniel Reid, army surgeon, with whom she feels a growing attraction. He is brilliant at saving lives in battle, but his love life is not going so well. Tired of running out of medical supplies, Captain Reid takes some very big risks and the last may cost him his life. Can Charlie find him again before it is too late?
Charlotte was raised in the south, but she is no swooning southern belle. She will do whatever it takes to save her family and the man she loves. Times get very difficult for the hero and heroine, but they persevere and will keep you laughing and crying along with them until the very end.
Ms. Wylie has crafted an amazing novel set during the worst time in United States history. She sweeps you into the battlefields right along with the characters. What stands out about this story is that it is not a fluffy romance novel. It makes you feel the raw emotions of the struggles and sacrifices of the characters. SECRETS AND SACRIFICES is a stunning novel of bravery, hope, and love.
