The Copper Road: Beyond the Promise The Copper Road: Beyond the Promise by Richard Buxton
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

SynopsisShire is far, far from home, his old life in Victorian England a fading memory. To keep a promise to his childhood love, he’s sailed an ocean and battled through war-torn America.

He’s kept his promise, but now Clara’s pushing him away.
The war won’t let him go.

Fighting for the Union and his friends, Shire must survive the brutal campaign for Atlanta and imagine a future without her.

After a violent end to a cruel marriage, Clara is free from her husband but not from his ghost. All that is left to her is Comrie, her home in the Tennessee hills. But the war relentlessly steals away its treasures and its people.

Tod, a captured Rebel, escapes in Pennsylvania. His adventures on the roads and rivers back to his regiment cast the Civil War in a new light. Does he still have the will to fight?

Three young lives become wrapped in the Rebels’ desperate need for copper. Friendships, loyalty and love will be tested beyond breaking point. Shire has new promises to keep

Book ReviewHistorical fiction at its best! I thoroughly enjoyed the history that saturates this story along with the love triangle present with Clara, Shire, and Tod. I never expected to immerse myself in the connection that would be made with these characters! Shire has been in love with Clara since they were young. I, unfortunately, have not read the first installment of this series, but I could grasp what happened. Clara was sent to live in America from London and she married Taylor, a not so great man, from what I gather. Shire saves her from this by coming to America as well and joining in the war. In this installment, he saves her again but this time she has taken up with Tod, known to her as Luke, aboard a ship. Eventually, in the war, Tod connects with Shire and neither knows that the other is in love with Clara, until they are traveling together to save her again. It's a twisted tale rich with history and love
