took me awhile to get used to her, but eventually came to admire her fearless attitude and service Prayers and Scripture, as well as hymns and spirituals add some faith and hope to the story But he knoweth the way that I take when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold The author shows his thorough research in the many discussions and events included, plus the cameo appearances of historical figures The horrors and violence of events are added and described just enough to get a glimpse of how awful it must have been It is hard to imagine the scope and carnage of war Some of the dialogue seemed overly dramatized at times, and a bit far fetched I enjoyed the story in the last half Recommend to readers who enjoy stories based on real history, especially the Civil War, with some

life, like her romantic walks with Kyle When war broke out, we got a lot of I hate you and I love you scenes and love letters while her fiance s at war Excitement returned when the war came to Gettysburg and they still managed to spend time kissing intensely.My main problem was with the hussyer, heroine She was extremely forward about embracing and passionately kissing a man, even before he was officially courting her They also had premarital sex implied rather than described She justified this to herself that God would bless this because they love each other She even called herself by his last name and called him her husband before the actual wedding.I was continually annoyed by her spoiled attitude She was hateful to people who hurt her pride for example, Liberty scared her when trying to save her life and even apologized for it, but she basically cursed him to hell for doing so She was impulsive plus often jumped to wrong conclusions She s a red head, so she feels that passion, a quick temper, and tantrums are alright One minute she hates a man and the next she s attracted to him Even with her beauty and kisses, I can t understand why any man was attracted to her But they all were.There were no graphic sex scenes or bad language Overall, I enjoy actual diaries from this time than this story, but people who enjoy impulsive, passionate heroines may enjoy it I

like Scarlet O Hara on steroids I could not see her being trusted as a conducter on the Underground Railroad because of her immaturity and rashness By the time the war got to Gettysburg and Clarissa was thrown into the aftermath of the battle, nursing the wounded, I felt like she had finally grown up She went about her tasks as it was her Christian Duty, not caring which solders were Rebels and which were Union Then she actually saw battle and that s where her stubbornness served her well.Mr Pura does an exceptional job of describing the battle at Gettysburg And the scene with Abraham Lincoln dedicating the cemetery was very moving I remember that memorizing the Gettysburg Address was a requirement in my Junior High days I wish everyone would be able to recite it It is important to

reading about the Civil War is one of my favorite time periods to read in, but I wound up utterly disappointed by this story The timeline seemed to jump around a lot, within the first half of the 1860s time period, though I am grateful that it did so in a linear fashion The jumping around wound up being of a confusing factor to the story rather than an enhancement.The characterization seemed exaggerated, and there were a few places where I found my head spinning with how Clarissa kept changing her mood and feelings I really began to hate her for it, and I couldn t connect to Kyle or Liberty too much either I also really hated the love triangle that seemed to be set up between the two men, especially with the later revelations in the book.I was not impressed with this story or

War setting drew me in, especially since it was set in such a renowned location In fact, that was one of the striking parts of the reading experience because most of the action took place prior to the famous Battle of Gettysburg, when the town was just a quaint place that outsiders would never have heard of The heroine, Clarissa Ross, points this out herself, commenting that she does not want her idyllic town and its environs to be remembered for death and destruction Given all of the tragic events that have occurred even recently in the U.S this was a reminder that disasters can happen anywhere, and this is where faith comes in as we trust God that He is ultimately working all things for the good of His children Clarissa was a distinctive character, to be sure In some ways she reminded me of Scarlett O Hara, with her stubbornness and her temper An inimitable redhead, Clarissa was very strongminded and outspoken, which I think was due in part to her being an only child and also to her living in the North Had she been raised in the South, I think that the patriarchal society there would have had a deeper influence on her and she may have been somewhat submissive At first I found her character to be off putting, but I soon grew to admire her and her antics The romance, which is usually my least favorite part of a story, was very engaging because it was fraught with both danger and surprises From a historical viewpoint, I was pleased that this novel pointed out that the Civil War was about much than just the issue of slavery states rights and the economy were at the forefront of the fighting, especially in the beginning The many different levels of conflict in the book were well balanced by the Christian and romantic aspects, and I only wish that the story had been a bit longer in order to fill out some of the details fully and allow for the plot to play out slowly I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no

battle in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.I found the leading lady in this story, Clarissa Avery Ross, a bit of a character and frankly did not like her flippant attitude about much of life and especially how she interacted with the young men in her life Her role as a member of the Underground Railroad helping escaped slaves in their journey to freedom was admirable and yet it, too, was complicated by her personality or attitude Blame it on her flaming red hair or not I didn t care for it That doesn t mean her behavior and personality was not suited it simply means I didn t care for it.How valid it was to the time period I will leave that to the experts and those who research and delve into whatever records exist that narrate how young ladies comported themselves in the 1860s in America.As the Civil War or whatever other name one wishes to give this American war moves into Pennsylvania, Clarissa s character or behavior changes This is definitely in keeping with reality as when confronted with the very real prospects of war in your own backyard, and then the actual experience of said battles, a frivolous young lady can take on a definite transformation and become quite serious in attitude and behavior This happens to Clarissa.Mr Pura expertly handles the workings of the Underground Railroad and the approach of the Confederate army on Gettysburg and the battle fought at that locale In great detail, he paints word pictures that place the reader in the middle of the battles He shows the fierceness of war He describes the compassionate cessation of conflict while they comb the battlefield for survivors Northern and Southern.An interesting read A good amount of history A clean romance.I received a complimentary copy from the publisher to facilitate a review Opinions are

freedom of slaves in all that she can do and expects her love, Kyle Forrester to do the same But though Kyle is against slavery, he goes about things much different than Clarissa And then we are given a mysterious character by the name of Liberty, who is not only masked and resolute, almost terrifyingly so in his work on the Railroad, but has many secrets hidden that Clarissa is dying to uncover This story takes the reader from the start of the war, all the way through the battle of Gettysburg and gives us an eyewitness account of what it may have been like to be a young woman watching her town being turned into a battlefield I have been to Gettysburg and could just imagine that horrible conflict there Even though Clarissa could be over the top in her character at times, the romance was sweet and fierce, and the battle was a great reminder of thankfulness to those who fought for freedom and the preservation of the United States.I received a complimentary copy of this book from

idealism did not endear her to me at first I did, however, have a sneaking admiration for the elusive and enigmatic Liberty But as the war came closer and became real to Clarissa and her idealism became tempered by experience I did find myself starting to like her and admire her fighting spirit In many ways I imagine reality was a bit like this, the boys went to war expecting glory and for it

best Remember, she s not a 15 or 16 year old going through puberty but a 19 year old who should know better Some triggers for me were the excessive descriptions of kissing scenes and maybe even the allusion of premarital sex Overall, though, the book had me hooked and it never slowed down One thing after another continued to take the characters down different avenues, and because the female protagonist was willing to risk her life for the greater good, the reader is able to be a party to it And for that, I m thankful for her personality traits, good and bad flag 1 likeLike see review

received a review copy of this novel in paperback form from the publisher, Barbour Books In no way has this influenced my review The opinions expressed in this review are my own I give MHB in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Clarissa s Conflict 4 STARS This novel is a Historical Christian Romance.Overall, I have really enjoyed the novels that I ve read in the My Heart Belongs series, and I do highly recommend them Clarissa s Conflict is a good read, too I found the writing to be very well done, and the research impeccable Pura does an excellent job of drawing the reader into the narrative, and creating a story line that forces pages to fly by There are some moments in this novel where I refused to put the book down because I absolutely had to find out what happened next If you are a fan of Civil War novels, this book is definitely for you Pura does a FANTASTIC job illustrating what it was like to be a conductor on the Underground Railroad and a soldier during the Civil War in America These moments were some of the best and most terrifying in the story My favorite aspect is seeing the portrayal of such brave and courageous men and women Regardless of what could happen to them, many men and women sacrificed their own safety to make sure slaves were freed from slavery I love the dedication to doing the right thing no matter the consequences I was terrified for Clarissa the whole time, but I thought her admirable And, the depiction of the Battle of Gettysburg is incredibly well done I felt like I was right there on the battlefield with Clarissa and Kyle as they fought against the Confederate soldiers I could smell the loamy dirt, the blood, the gunpowder I could hear the horses neighing, the soldiers screaming, the guns firing, the cannons exploding It felt so realistic reading those parts.While I did very much enjoy the story, I struggled a little with Clarissa s character I found her rather annoying She is bombastic, self centered, and bratty Sometimes, it feels like she is channeling Katherine Hepburn s sauciness, and sometimes it feels like she is a Blanche Devereaux in nature I love Katherine Hepburn, and I adore the Golden Girls, but it just didn t work for me in this book Clarissa doesn t feel like a 19 year old woman from the 1860s rather, she reminds me of my teenagers today in my 12th grade English class Her actions and her personality are SO 2018 I know teens are teens no matter the era, but American society in 1860 had certain standards for their women that I see in every female character in this book EXCEPT Clarissa My biggest issue with Clarissa is how she views fighting for what is right I love her hatred of slavery I even agree with her hatred of slavery But Clarissa believes if a person doesn t fight for a cause like she fights for a cause then the person is weak and worthless I detest this line of immature thinking And, because she thinks like this, there is a moment where Clarissa treats someone abominably This moment in the story completely ruined Clarissa for me It made me realize that if Clarissa were a real person today, I would not want to be around her.Please don t be discouraged away from this book because of how I feel about the main character It could be that I deal with teens EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE, so I m a little jaded The depictions of the Underground Railroad and the Civil War battles are SO well written that they make this book an awesome read I actually re read passages because they were so good the hold your breath and sit on the edge of your seat kind of good It is clear that solid research went into this novel Overall, I do recommend this novel Like I said above, Pura really knows how to tell a great War story flag Like see review Nov 16, 2018 Emma rated it it was amazing My

that war may eventually come to her beloved Gettysburg and change it forever Clarissa was a complicated young lady and I sometimes found myself irritated by her actions Her red hair was often the excuse that she used for both her impulsiveness and her quick temper but there was also a positive side to her fiery nature She strongly believed that all men are equal and none should be considered inferior and she never stopped trying to convince others There aren t many fair maidens who would choose to dress like a man, chew tobacco and go into battle but Clarissa had no reservations in fighting for her beliefs or for the safety of the man that she loved It is very apparent that author Murray Pura thoroughly researched this part of our United States history and he has been able to weave the facts into a fascinating story I never realized that the Amish, Mennonites and Quakers often aided the slaves in their journeys to freedom and I had forgotten that those who helped the slaves escape were referred to as conductors and that Moses was the code name for Harriet Tubman, the chief conductor of the Underground Railroad I love history and this book has offered me a whole new understanding of the many causes that contributed to the Civil War and I ve also been given a new insight into the intense suffering of those involved I have gained a better concept of the Gettysburg Address that President Abraham Lincoln delivered in November 1863 and a deeper appreciation for those stirring words that I memorized many, many years ago I thoroughly enjoyed My Heart

how the civil war changed some towns in the United States forever Clarissa is a headstrong, self motivated nineteen year old at the start of the story She is a secret and very brave conductor in the Underground Railroad group I m going to go a bit against popular review opinion here and write that at times the character irritated me I thought she would draw attention and get someone captured or killed with her argumentative attitude at the worst possible times when journeying with escaped slaves She was a pain in the neck who was truly being watched over by God I suppose during the time period a woman would be considered an irritant to accomplish what this character pulled off I did notice as the plot continued that she matured as she grew older and experienced in life She is a strong character as is the men in her life Kyle Forrester is a seminary student who holds fast to his belief that he can best serve the country by being a strong voice for God and against slavery Clarissa sets her heart on him while also being drawn to the secretive Underground conductor, Liberty who is a larger than life figure that is brave and strong The Amish also have a place in this story.This is such an intense story Readers experience the horrible days of risking lives to help newly escaped brave peoples to reach heaven on to the battlefield descriptions which had to be a major

cannot live With you I can never die Mura was able to bring light in the darkness, fun and laughter, even in times of trouble You ride like a demon, the captain said to her I wish we had time for horse races I d bet money on you She saluted Yes, sir Thank you sir Her mouth was full of tobacco juice, but she wasn t going to spit with him there Do you fight like a demon too, Corporal She grinned, knowing full well the effect was gruesome, for in addition to a muddy, lacerated face and her matted hair, stiff with dried blood, she was confident half her teeth were black with tobacco
