    Eternity Between Us is an engrossing story of torn loyalties and espionage set during the beginning of the Civil War. What makes it even more fascinating is that many of the events in the story are based on historical accounts. Why make stuff up when history provides all the drama you could ask for? This story also has one of my all-time favourite dilemmas: Characters who fall in love despite being on opposite sides of the political divide.

This story also has one of my all-time favourite dilemmas: Characters who fall in love despite being on opposite sides of the political divide. It doesn’t just create delicious romantic tension; it also creates engaging intellectual tension as the characters consider what is driving their loyalty to a particular cause and how to meet each other on the middle ground. And in this case, there was one scene in particular where Evelyn and Samuel discussed their conflicting loyalties that may just be my favourite in the whole book! And the espionage. Who doesn’t love a bit of espionage? Boy did that get interesting in the last quarter of the book. All of a sudden it was all happening! If you love historical fiction, make sure you don’t miss this one. Engaging characters—including two very lovable and believable children—vivid historical detail, and a story that will keep you turning the pages. I received a copy of this novel from the author. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.

    Eternity Between Us by Stephenia McGee is a top notch historical book set during the Civil War. This book focuses on a Southern girl, born and bred, and a Northern man at the end of his medical studies. Can the gulf between them be crossed? Evelyn Mapleton is beholden to her Aunt and cousin while her father is away reporting on the war. They have no real fondness for her, she is more of an obligation to them. She is outspoken about her support of the South and intends to help in some way. Samuel Eternity Between Us by Stephenia McGee is a top notch historical book set during the Civil War. This book focuses on a Southern girl, born and bred, and a Northern man at the end of his medical studies. Can the gulf between them be crossed? Evelyn Mapleton is beholden to her Aunt and cousin while her father is away reporting on the war. They have no real fondness for her, she is more of an obligation to them. She is outspoken about her support of the South and intends to help in some way. Samuel Flynn, a Yankee, has one desire: to finish his practical requirements under his Mentor, Dr. Porter, and go back home to help his father in his medical practice. His job for the foreseeable future is to tend to the broken soldiers at a field hospital near Washington D.C. This book has a different slant of usual Civil War stories. The reasons for loyalty to one side or the other is not so clear cut. It shows the everyday problems that occur when war rears its ugly head. Stephenia writes a very detailed account of certain happenings. She has researched well and tells us of women spies and how they helped their chosen side. Each of the main characters has a strong faith in God and staunch reasons why they believe as they do. But they can always be led by the Spirit of God. God comes through and keeps them and shows them the best way to resolve their differences and carry on. The author’s lyrical prose and characterization is a joy to read. And there were a few surprises just to keep the reader on his toes! Stephenia McGee is fast becoming a favorite author! I recommend this book to fans of Civil War stories. You will not be disappointed! *I was given an ebook ARC of this novel by the author. I was not required to give favorable review. All opinions are my own.

The action is a mixture of fact and fiction and keeps the reader entertained. I read the book in just one sitting as I could not put it down. War is fought under many guises - the abolition of slavery, taxes, political gain- but the sad truth is, everyone loses. How can a country become so divided as to fight its own? Families were torn apart as sides were chosen. Hospitals were set up to tend the wounded from each particular side. "Shed the colour of their coat and they were the same underneath." Some medical personnel chose to heal from just one side. Others chose to heal all men. There is a search for a father which reminds the reader that we need to search for Our Father - and He will always be found. This links to a search for love and to belong. We all want a home where we are loved. Our home will always be found in His Arms. Within the novel there are spies and those who work undercover. There are no lengths to which some will not stoop. War brings out the very best and the very worst in people. There is the theme of taking care of the widows and orphans. Two darling children just moved into my heart. With the men away fighting, the women step up. They were seen as weaker but some certainly proved to have moral backbones. Some were lacking in moral fibre and content to use others for their gain. I adored Eternity Between Us with its likable characters and fabulous storyline. I loved the hospital setting where soldiers of all sides could be treated. Vivid descriptions bought the landscapes to life. More please Stephenia H McGee. I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

If you are a fan of historical romance and you haven't yet read her books, you absolutely must. The author combines fluid descriptive writing with deeply-layered characters, well-executed plot with twists and turns, and well-researched historical facts and background. Eternity Between Us focuses on the beginnings of Civil War and tells the story from both Federal and Secessionist side. The difference of opinions and passions misdirected into violence and injustice rages on both sides of the war and the author clearly knows how to pull these emotions to form the core of the storyline. There is plenty of intrigue and espionage in the story as Southern women band together for their war effort. Samuel, the steady, determined, kind, loyal, compassionate medical student, is a Northerner who only wants to earn his degree and license so that he can heal and comfort, no matter the skin color or loyalty. Evelyn is a gently-bred Southern lady who has been taught that Northerners are evil and wrong. She is young and naive, though compassionate and passionate about what she believes is right. Samuel is the swoony hero in the story and easy to love. Evelyn, in her self-righteousness, is a little more difficult to connect with; however, she does mature in her ways and does indeed become a woman worthy of Samuel. The two children in the story are quite endearing and bring joy to the darkness that envelopes Samuel and Evelyn's world as war descends. I received a copy of the book from the author/publisher and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

With deep soul searching conversations that will have you thinking how you would answer the same questions if you were there yourself. The first quarter of the book focuses on setting the scene and building up the characters, then the action really ramps up in the last quarter and I was fully engaged in the drama! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories set in the Civil War period. (I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including Netgalley.

    A riveting civil war story that held me captive as I read about torn loyalties, spy rings, and a love story involving two people on opposite sides of the war. Historical fiction fans do not want to miss this! I love the author's historical notes at the end, and how fascinating history made it into her book. Stephenia McGee is one of my new favorite authors.

My heart hurt for those two children who had already been through so much. I cheered when this bachelor doctor took them in, which causes more problems for Samuel. When the Union doctor and Southern sympathizer meet, sparks fly. I loved watching their journey as they puzzled out the complexities of the war and their parts in it. It is a thoughtful love story that examines both sides of the War.

    I never really cared for history in school. It was always so boring to me and I could never remember one battle from the next. Stephenia McGee writes in such a way you forget you're reading historical fiction. The characters leap off the page and you forget they aren't real!

When I was reading the scene where the Yankee soldiers broke down the door to Evelyn's Aunt Mary's house I could picture it so vividly in my mind's eye. She has a way of describing people, places and events that make them stand out to you but not bore you with too many details. I was hooked literally from the first sentence and couldn't put it down!! The story moves along at a nice place and even though there are historical events mentioned you don't get bogged down. There is just the right amount of drama and intrigue. You never know what's going to happen next. Evelyn was my favorite character, probably because I relate to her the most. I tend to feel like I don't belong no matter how hard I try. I seem to be the odd duck or just blend into the back ground. Unlike me though, Evelyn doesn't let this stop her! She is determined to make a difference in the cause she believes in at any and all cost. You have to admire her gumption! It's not an easy time for a lady to make a fuss and not know her proper place but she did it anyway simply because she felt it was the right thing to do. I could go on and on but I want you to read Eternity Between Us for yourself. When you do come back and let me know what you think!!

    3.5 stars "I swear, Evelyn Mapleton, you would be a fine catch for the theatre. Tell me, is it hard for you to fabricate such a persona or does it come easily?" Never once did Evelyn Mapleton intend to put herself in the middle of a "space as wide as eternity", it just happened that way. Living in the much conflicted state of Virginia, where loyalties were wildly diverse in the midst of a young nation's civil war, she flees one place of supposed refuge in order to find another.

Never once did Evelyn Mapleton intend to put herself in the middle of a "space as wide as eternity", it just happened that way. Living in the much conflicted state of Virginia, where loyalties were wildly diverse in the midst of a young nation's civil war, she flees one place of supposed refuge in order to find another. But safety can be as fleeting as a wisp of smoke, especially after her path continually crosses with that of a young medical resident, Samuel Flynn. Just which Evelyn Mapleton can she manage to be, when kind, assessing eyes seem to follow her every move in his hospital; his very Federal hospital. The first time Samuel Flynn laid eyes on Evelyn Mapleton, she emerged from the edge of a deep wooded forest, much like a fairy princess out of a child's storybook. But he soon learned that an iron will resided within the dark haired beauty, for the explanation of her whereabouts made absolutely no sense. Imagine his surprise when she appears once again, this time as a hospital volunteer, taking great care of his patients and confusing his heart, especially when her loyalties prove to be divided. Stephenia McGee has taken a seemingly impossible possibility and crafted it into albeit dangerous, but satisfying reality when she dares to weave a determined secessionist into the life of peace keeping federalist, displaying history from a new, and possibly better, perspective.

    Wow, just Wow!! What a wonderful story of love, faith, espionage, danger and intrigue. Above all, love. I have always been interested in the Civil War era and all that the men and women had to go through. Pretty much the same as what men and women go through in any and all wars. But Stephenia McGee brings it all alive and right there in front of you. Being able to make a real life out of an imaginary person and make it so believable is quite an accomplishment.

But Stephenia McGee brings it all alive and right there in front of you. Being able to make a real life out of an imaginary person and make it so believable is quite an accomplishment. This is a story about a woman, Evelyn Mapleton, who has spent her life trying to get approval from her father, aunt, and spoiled cousin to little avail. When war breaks out, Evelyn is living with her Aunt Mary in Martinsburg, Virginia, but is determined to go to Washington to be with her reporter father. When she finally makes it to Washington, she meets Samuel Flynn, a medical student working to earn his license as a doctor by helping the Union soldiers in Washington. I loved how Evelyn and Samuel met and was rooting for them the whole time. They went through so much to finally be together, that it makes you wonder if other men and women had to go through similar trials in other wars.

There are a couple of scenes that will make the readers with tender hearts need a tissue because it tells how prisoners of war are treated by a certain doctor from the opposing side of the war. I think if more were like Samuel and Evelyn, there might not have been as many casualties of the Civil War because they know all men have feelings and deserved to be treated equally. Can Samuel and Evelyn learn to trust each other and follow their hearts? I recommend that you read the section, "Historical note", after reading the novel because it explains the historical facts that was included in the story. I received a complementary copy by the author. These opinions are my own.

Even though I didn't like the way she was treated I thought that all she went through made her a better person. People can't help their lineage. I think it's a shame we all can't get along. God made us equal in His eyes. I don't even know how hate really got started except through Satan. He's the root of all evil!! Just between you and me I thought Evelyn was pretty and down to earth. She wasn't stuck up like other people. What makes people like that? I have no idea. But I'm pretty sure God does. Now I like Stephen the doctor. He knew what he was about and like all human beings he had a certain weakness but he went on about his duties as was expected during that era. I considered him a hero. You won't want to miss this wonderful novel. I highly recommend this story for all who love the Civil War era or just historical fiction. I want to read all of her other novels. I"m hooked!! All opinions are my own and no compensations were received.

    This was a great book that grabbed me from the beginning. Evelyn has a strong character and way of thinking that is far more advanced than the women of her time period. I loved that she had a heart that wanted to serve and was trying her best to help the cause. Samuel has a gift/curse that served him well as a medical doctor in training. Samuel has a compassionate heart as he serves his patients. The story was well developed and characters were memorable.

Also always good to have children in the story, Emily and Benjamin, they add so much to the story and there is an little mystery involving them. The book kept me interested from the first page to the last. I wouldn’t mind at all if got to hear more about the characters in the future. I can hope anyway.

    I have read several of Mrs. McGee’s novels and I was anxiously waiting for this one. A Civil War story with word descriptions to make you feel like you are there. People on opposite sides of the war and a spy ring. What better story is there? I also loved that the heroine Evelyn was not a wimp. Being a strong woman she did things that a weak lady wouldn’t have done. Now I liked Samuel too because I like a good heart in a man. Lesser men wouldn’t have done some things Samuel did.
