Summary

On to Richmond is the second in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It's listeners like you who have turned it into a world-wide bestseller. Thank you!

Burdened with the responsibility of running an entire plantation, Carrie Cromwell fights to understand the forces tearing her beloved country apart. As battles rage around her, she watches as her life slowly unravels and she discovers truths she would never have imagined. Will her actions and decisions push her even further from those she loves? When the danger she dreads becomes reality, will she find the courage and strength to escape?

Robert is pulled into battle, facing things he would never have imagined. Moses and Rose face a great loss, and then make a decision that could claim their lives.

Everyone struggles to survive and live in a country that has exploded into Civil War. The second audiobook of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You'll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free and slave, Southern and Northern - and you'll fall in love with every character.

Not worth the time or money

This series was apparently written for a pre-teen audience. The story doesn't advance, the writing is simplistic and repetitive. The author overused phrases throughout such as "a long moment" and dwells on dreams. She attaches twenty first century sensibilities, ideals and values to nineteenth century characters. Overall, the material poor, as was the finished product.

Worse than the material was the narration. Teenage Carrie was given the voice of an old woman. All the male characters sounded alike.

I would NOT recommend this book or series under any circumstances.

Stirs the Soul while imparting Truth

Everyone studied the American Civil War in school. Unfortunately, the ability of teachers to explain the tragedy as well as the triumphs without causing most to shut down and fail to grasp why it effects us to this day. Speaking as a Civil War Buff and as recipient of a B.A. in History from Grove City College, Mrs. Dye has done her research well. This wonderful story has us continuing to follow Carrie Cromwell from April 1861 through May 1862. Not only was I transported to the time, but furthermore can feel the Love the author has for God. Carrie has decided to Love God with alls she has and love her neighbor as herself. She is a principled woman and she lives out those principles regardless of the consequences to herself. I wonder if Mrs. Dye spent much time reading James prior to the birth of this story yarn. If you are a Christian, over the age of 12 and have a love for stories that help to show how to apply truth to one's own life ... well this is the series for you. Do make sure that you have read the first book in this series prior to starting this book. Surely, no only will you enjoy a great story but your soul will soar with desire to follow God an trust Him in all things.

review

Each time a character is in peril, it's so obvious that all will turn out ok, without farther hardship. For stories sake, I think that each character doesn't need to be rescued so quick without further harm. no one has luck this good in real life. I do like the spiritual tones in the series.

Stop the stupidity

How can a woman as empathetic as Carrie ever love a man who could whip a child to death? Even in the age of slavery when many believed a black person was an animal.. would you think a person who would whip an animal to death was fundamentally a good person??? No… I can’t believe that and will not read any more of this series.

I loved this story. I particularly love the parts of divine intervention. God doesn't chose sides.

History

Even though as a Virginia native I was well versed on the civil war I enjoyed every minute of this. When I was a little girl , the stories of slavery broke my heart. I just pray there were more slave owners like Carrie that gave love and care to them. Where the north was not a bit better at least blacks could call themselves free. Keep writing and I’ll keep reading.

Destruction can bring love

This book in the series about the Civil war encourages all of us to hang on to hope no matter what the circumstances are. The old friends develop their lives in meaningful and positive directions despite the horrors of war all around them . Excellent story
