About the Book
The War Between the States shakes Margaret Bryant out of her comfortable upper-class life when her father enlists in the Army of the Potomac. Despite being safely ensconced above the Mason-Dixon Line in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Margaret finds her strength tested by opposition from familiar faces and Confederate threats. Will she let a young man from a lesser station into her heart even as war rages ever nearer to the homefront?

Restless Connor Doyle sees the war as a way to escape from his family’s farm and his identity as a poor Irishman’s son. His brother, Adam, torn between duty to country and his family, enlists alongside Connor. Adam dares to hope in a future with Margaret when he begins a courtship correspondence from the war front. The two brothers make a vow to protect one another at all costs, but when faced with death and destruction from all sides—will they be able to uphold it?


The three bloodiest days in America’s history brings these three together at Gettysburg and tragedy’s cruelty threatens to tear two hearts apart—and bring two unlikely allies together.

My Thoughts

Meghan Gorecki brings to life the beauty and the tragic horrors of the Civil War.

Margaret Bryant is a force to reckon with. I love her strength and tenacity. Her protective heart and stubbornness. I loved watching the Bryant family interact. Support each other, fight with each other. They felt real and tangible. Adam Doyle is the opposite of Margaret in oh so many ways. But their differences complete each other.

This era can be such a downer. Brother fighting against brother...A country at war with itself...I can't even imagine the heartache, the fear, the cost...that each family had to make. Ms. Gorecki takes one of the most brutal portions of our young history and weaves a thread of hope, life, and dare I say...Romance...Lighting the dark corners of war.

I received a complimentary copy of Amongst the Roses. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
