For This We Are Soldiers by Carla Kelly


For This We Are Soldiers: Tales of the Frontier Army

For This We Are Soldiers by Carla Kelly
Rating: of 5 stars
Source: Received from Publisher To Review
Genre: Historical Romance

Book Description:  From master storyteller Carla Kelly comes this collection of frontier tales that take you behind typical army lines and into the hearts of ordinary men and women who perform extraordinary acts of bravery. From handsome hospital stewards and dashing soldiers to courageous children and wives who will pull at your heartstrings, there’s something for everyone’s fancy.

My thoughts: As I read the introduction of this collection of stories I wasn'the surprised to learn that Carla Kelly is a historian.  It made perfect sense because I have always admired her attention to detail in her historical fiction.

This collection centers around the Indian Wars.  Each story is unique. The characters and circumstances are different.  All  tell the story of soldiers, families, and some of blossoming romance.  The people in the stories are resilient and illustrate the hard life that many led. The stories feel as if they are reflections of the past.

This is another wonderful book from an amazing author.
