ABOUT THE BOOK
As Sophie's spy network grows, she walks a tightrope of deception, using her father's position as newspaper editor and a suitor's position in the ordnance bureau for the advantage of the Union. One misstep could land her in prison, or worse. Suspicion hounds her until she barely even trusts herself. When her espionage endangers the people she loves, she makes a life-and-death gamble.
Will she follow her convictions even though it costs her everything-and everyone-she holds dear?

Boy, did this book remind me of living in Virginia. A place I never want to live or be ever again. As a navy brat, and navy wife I had never lived in such a racial place as Virginia in my life.
While this book is based during the Civil War, don't think for one second that just because of segregation, and other programs that racism isn't alive and well in 2015. I'll step off my soap box, now.
Sophie is someone who you will want to cheer for, and hope she doesn't get caught. It is a great read, the action is well placed and it definitely keeps you turning pages.
