Kurzbeschreibung

Near the end of the Civil War, inhumane conditions at Andersonville Prison caused the deaths of 13,000 Union soldiers in only one year. In this gripping and affecting novel, three young Confederates and an entire town come face-to-face with the prison’s atrocities and will learn the cost of compassion, when withheld and when given.

Sentry Dance Pickett has watched, helpless, for months as conditions in the camp worsen by the day. He knows any mercy will be seen as treason. Southern belle Violet Stiles cannot believe the good folk of Americus would knowingly condone such barbarism, despite the losses they’ve suffered. When her goodwill campaign stirs up accusations of Union sympathies and endangers her family, however, she realizes she must tread carefully. Confederate corporal Emery Jones didn’t expect to find camaraderie with the Union prisoner he escorted to Andersonville. But the soldier’s wit and integrity strike a chord in Emery. How could this man be an enemy? Emery vows that their unlikely friendship will survive the war—little knowing what that promise will cost him.

As these three young Rebels cross paths, Emery leads Dance and Violet to a daring act that could hang them for treason. Wrestling with God’s harsh truth, they must decide, once and for all, Who is my neighbor?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not sure.... 18. März 2014
Von csm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I honestly do not know what to say about this book. With such a huge subject as this, I was greatly wondering how Groot would handle it. Not that great, in my opinion. There are a few great points - I thought it particularly poignant that she took the time to highlight the gruesomeness of one of the Civil War prisons, but she got caught up in a storyline that really had jagged edges, jetting out all over the place. There wasn't anything to really pull you into the book - and with subjects like this, that is saying something. There was a lot left out, not a lot of character development, and I was left with an overall vagueness that I haven't felt after reading a book for quite some time. Like, why not visit a Confederate Prison, like the one she mentioned VERY briefly in Chicago?

For example, she tries to make Violet a heroine, but then everyone else jumps in there with her and she gets left out of the story quite a bit. Groot tosses in a marriage proposal and even that gets caught up in the wind. You have so many characters that you have to go back and see where they were mentioned previously to figure out who they are, some of which have no introduction at all. Just a last name and that's it.

Overall, just an average book - nothing here that's going to change the world at all. I would like to see her go back and redo this one. It feels like a book sketch of something that's going to be really good, like it isn't finished at all. There's more to be told and a better story to be written. This one lacks energy, focus and overall vision.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sobering & Personal 25. Januar 2014
Von Diesel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The facts, though inconvenient at times, can still be safe. Tens of thousands were imprisoned, thousands died unnecessary deaths while those responsible grew even more calloused. But Tracy Groot writes to the soul.

In this book it was Americus- a southern town where silverware must be placed just right- that stood a mere stone’s throw from the atrocities of Andersonville Prison. But a few individuals got it right, transcending the justified denial of hometown Americus to love where they could, save a few and bring light to a very dark place.

Great fiction reveals a truth that reality camouflages. Although we are daily surrounded by injustices of unfathomable measure and overwhelmed by a commensurate sense of helplessness, good writers call forth something. Risks worth taking.

True to form, Groot must have teleported herself back in time and spent a restless night, tossing and turning in the prison filth of Andersonville. And due to her signature style, I’m not allowed to sleep tonight. For “I am Americus.”

"The Sentinels of Andersonville" by Tracy Groot, Book Review
Every country has parts of its history that it would like to erase, and the American Civil War should fall into that category. Brother against brother, families and farms ruined by the war and fighting of men. And the fall out of the war was the prisoners. This is the center of this novel, the Andersonville Prison, near the end of the war. The conditions were so bad that the stench could be smelled from a distance away. The South lacked the resources to care for these northern prisoners and so did little.

The novel is extremely detailed, and seems to move very slowly. I was a bit surprised by the Note to the Reader at the very beginning of the book describing that many of the details of the book include unimaginable sufferings, and not sure I even wanted to read any farther. But I did. And it was true. The details were, well, terrible, but showed what really happened.

I had a very difficult time getting into the book, figuring out the characters, following the plots, making since of the story. The details of the conditions were not so terrible that I could not read it, but I think slowed the progress of the story. Overall, this was not a favorite book, and I would only recommend it for those who really enjoy the details of the Civil War.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good read in so many ways 16. April 2014
Von Lynda Hester - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Historically. Romantically. Thrillingly. Disgustingly. Revoltingly. Hilariously , Sympathetically , Unbelievably , Interestingly, Impressively, Cleverly...and more. Read it for a better understanding of the whys and wherefores of the Civil War. Plan a trip to Andersonville. It has to be seen to be believed and even then , it is difficult to comprehend.
Great book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well-researched with powerful messages 13. Juli 2014
Von J4Life5 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Prior to reading this book, I was familiar with Andersonville only as being the name of a Confederate prison during the Civil War. One of my favorite things about reading historical fiction is that I learn a bit about history that I didn't know before. On rare occasions, a book is so well-researched and presents historical information in such an intriguing way that I feel compelled to read more books on the subject. That is what happened while reading The Sentinels of Andersonville.

I already knew I enjoyed Groot's writing style because I really enjoyed her book Flames of Resistance, but I do think this one is even better. Everything about this book was spot on - the description, the plot, and the characters. If I had anything negative to say, it would be that there were so many characters that sometimes I had to think for a couple of moments to remember the specifics of some of the minor characters, such as the townspeople.

This book is not only good from a historical perspective, but also because the message is so relevant. Sacrifice, loving your enemies, standing up for what is right, even if you are standing alone, mercy, and keeping your word despite the cost are just some of the ideas Groot explores through her characters. I especially like her comments in the afterword about asking ourselves not, "What would Jesus do?" but asking, "What can I do right now?". It really challenges readers to make a difference day by day in our communities and the people we come in contact with.

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great historical fiction read.
