In the debut installment of a series dealing with the southern Civil War experience, the daughter of a wealthy slaveholding family is drawn into the abolitionist movement, where she is confronted with the risks and sacrifices her beliefs entail. Original.

Baker Publishing Group
Book 1 in the Refiner's Fire series. The daughter of a wealthy slave-holding family from Richmond, Virginia, Caroline Fletcher is raised in a culture that believes slavery is God-ordained and biblically acceptable. But upon awakening to the cruelty and injustice it encompasses, Caroline's eyes are opened for the first time to the men and women who have cared tirelessly for her. Her journey of maturity and faith will draw her into the abolitionist movement, where she is confronted with the risks and sacrifices her beliefs entail.
In this Christy-award-winning novel, now beautifully repackaged, a timid southern belle must find her voice--and her courage--when she joins the Abolitionist cause.

I really enjoyed this book. The author's style of writing is appealing. Her detail descriptions regarding events of the civil war, were informative; as well as engaging to read.
I will read the rest of the Refiner's series.

I really loved this book! It was so exciting and properly written. The one thing I didn't like was the many romance parts. I liked when she first met the guy and it was funny and stuff but I don't think he had to have so much detail later about it...
