The third in Alyssa Cole’s pulse-pounding, soul-searing saga of the American Civil War, this entry offers a slow-burn romance, two deeply traumatized leads, and all the complexity of thought, deed and desire that Cole does so well. Forced to spy for the Confederacy, Cuban Janeta Sanchez doesn’t reckon with the undeniable attraction of Daniel Cumberland, a born-free northerner who has only recently escaped months of abuse as a captured slave. These two troubled souls find solace in each other, as lies are revealed and loyalties are tested against the backdrop of an increasingly frenetic war. Absolutely fantastic. – Maura Tan
