This intriguing and moving book begins in 1861 in the South. Claire Harper and her twin brother, Frank are facing the reality of life on a small farm with their father and the conflict between the Union and the south over the slavery issue. Frank is fascinated with joining the troops to beat the Union in their tracks. His enthusiasm is not shared with Claire who adamantly opposes his decision. As he leaves Claire steps up to help her dad with the farm chores but with her delicate health the risk is high. Claire’s faith is tested by hard work, letters home from Frank, and the losses that come from a country at war within itself. Her hopes of finding love, her deep desire for Frank to make a choice about his eternal life, and her heart to stand beside her friends create a story that keeps you up reading late at night. The reality of this war comes through clearer than history books as A. M. Heath depicts the day to day lives of those involved. I thoroughly recommend reading Where Can I Flee and I believe you will be waiting like I am for the next book in the series.
