Only Call Us Faithful by Marie Jakober

Only Call Us Faithful

This book was recommended by one of my Goodreads friends, and it’s a perfect example of why I appreciate the site so much.  Despite it’s limited number of reviews, Only Call Us Faithful is definitely a five star read.

Historical fiction, set during the U.S. Civil War, Marie Jakober pens the tale of Union sympathizer Elizabeth Van Lew, a Richmond resident who helped Union prisoners and spied for the North.

Not only is this novel extremely well-written and researched, but I greatly appreciated the opportunity to hear the greater story of this amazing woman of whom I had recently read about in Liar, Temptress, Soldier Spy by Karen Abbott.

Fantastic novel!
