My Daughters Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould was a great book. I think this book was super fun because it switched between current times and the civil war. I loved getting both of the different views and things like that. I think that this is the best way to read a historical fiction book because you get to look at both parts of the book with different eyes. I have gotten bored while reading other books that are just historical fiction but because this book has both views I didn’t get bored. This is the first book I read by either of these authors, and I am for sure going to read the first two books in this series because I enjoyed this book that much.   If you aren’t the biggest fan of historical fiction, I think that this book would be a good fit for you.

Pursuing Gold by Cynthia L. Simmons

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Pursuing Gold by Cynthia L. Simmons was a super interesting historical fiction book.  This book takes place during the civil war which has always been a time period that I have had a hard time getting into the stories but this book was different for me and I am not sure why that is.  I really enjoyed the characters in this book even though at times I would forget who was who so I would be super confused for a page or so and then I would remember who was who and it all made sense again.  There are a lot of characters which is why I kept getting confused I am sure but once I was into the book a good way I was able to keep them straight.  I really did enjoy this authors writing and I am going to add her to list of authors to read more books by them in the future.  If you love historical fiction books I would for sure recommend this book to you especially if you love civil war fiction.
