Travel through American history while reading the exciting and intriguing stories of the Morgan family and the passing of Christian faith from The Jeremiah Morgans of Ohio and the Seth Coopers of Virginia share a friendship and faith stretching back two centuries to Edenford England Now that their children Sarah and Daniel are engaged to be married that bond will forever be secured by blood But when the Morgan brothers JD Marshall and Willy run slaves to freedom during a Cooper family visit a small scale skirmish between Northern and Southern families breaks out prophetic of the full scale war to followAs the Civil War erupts the children of the two families are uprooted from home the boys to battlefields Sarah to the big city of New York to write tracts for homesick soldiers But their greater peril may come from New York banker Caleb McKenna a long time enemy of the Morgans and Coopers who plots revenge for the death of his only daughter Can human relationships win out over political and geographical differences Can a commitment to God and family overcome hatred and vendettas Join a new generation of Morgans as they experience life and love amidst a nation at war with itself Where to begin Well for one I hate that cover None of the people look how I imagine them to be except maaaaaybe the woman on the right who I m guessing is Sarah and in my opinion the picture on the bottom is wrong Yes a spiritual revival among the troops is a plot point in the book but I think a battle scene would have brought the spirit of the book across so much better But it was better than the other cover so I went with it AnywayI m not here to discuss the book cover I m here to discuss the book And what a book it is The fourth in the amazing American Family Portait Series The Adversaries has to be my favorite book in the entire series I think the main reason is the characters which I ll be getting to in a minute because this book is probably the darkest in the series I mean it s the American Civil War for goodness sakes Actually it doesn t start with the War takes uite a few chapters to get to it but the events building up to it are ominous enough on their own The thing about reading historical fiction mainly those surrounding wars is that you know how everything is going to end So you have this tragic feeling of dread It s terrible and it s probably why I find this book the hardest to read even than the WWI and II books Plus Jack Cavanaugh have I mentioned he s a genius heaps feels on you at every turn I m always crying by the time I finish it even when I m with other people SO Characters This book Has some of the most awesome characters ever There s Sarah the budding writer who meets Harriet Beecher Stowe one of the first times I was jealous of a fictional character and Jenny her friend who is one of the best female characters in any of JC s books Then there s JD John Drew and Marshall and Willy the three Morgan brothers JD is my favorite because he s the oldest brother and he s such a gentlemen and because of Certain Tragic Things That Happen To Him Willy follows very closely He s crippled in one leg he sketches gorgeous pictures and even though he doesn t think so he s totally a hero Marshall s at the bottom of my list because well he s really vengeful and rude at timesbut he does improve by the end of the book so I m happy Basically the three brothers enlist in the army well Willy tries but he can t because he s disabled and Marshall goes totally rogue and JD s in disgrace Things were going pretty well with the book I m talking about the first time I read it I was enjoying it and the pages were flipping pretty fast AND THEN Benjamin McKenna Morgan stepped on the page and stole my heart He actually didn t steal my heart until near the ending but now whenever I re read it I like him right off because I know how his story is going to end When he first appears he insults JD Willy and Marshall all at the same time and he continues to do so for over half the book he s their commanding officer Annnd he sends JDhis company into the thickest part of the battle so JD will die as per his dad s Caleb McKenna s instructions Only JD doesn t die but pretty much everyone else does so Ben comes and apologizes after he got saved And THEN There s the Big Reveal which makes me cry every single time Then Ben and the Morgans and the Coopers family friends of the Morgans all go pack up and save Willy from Andersonville Prison So everything works out for good for some people and there s an Epilogue as usual there s one in all the AFP books with a triple wedding and the passing down of the Cooper and Morgan Bibles to the next recipient Which is always emotional for some reason but this time even so because it was originally going to go to JD but because of a wound he got in that one battle Ben sent him out on he can t have an children the scene where he finds out is justFEELS so the Bible has to go someone else And the person Jeremiah chooses is so unexpected and perfect and right It s awesome I m afraid this review won t make much sense to people who haven t read The Adversaries so GO AND READ IT You ll love it and hate it and it ll take up your life for at least a few hours So all in all it s a really good read Have fun Eva

    This generation of the Morgan family lived just before and during the Civil War Their varied personalities strengths and weaknesses were fun to discover The Civil War era is one of my favorites to read about so the plot kept my interest It had one major surprise that I didn't see coming and the way Abraham Lincoln was portrayed was marvelous There were a few places where there were battle details than I like but not so
