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.
