All Through the Night by Tara Johnson
As the Civil War is raging, Cadence Piper longs to help. She isn’t needed in her father’s shop. She isn’t needed at home. She is rejected as a nurse. But her sweet singing voice soothes the patients in the hospital in Washington, DC.
The last thing Dr. Joshua Ivy wants in his hospital is a pretty songbird distracting the men. But Cadence’s grit and determination slowly win him over. However, as much as he’s attracted to the woman dubbed the Songbird of the North, Joshua dares not let her close. His work in buying slaves in order to free them is too important – and has gained him some powerful enemies.
The tumult of the Civil War serves as a fitting backdrop for this story of two wounded people searching for purpose and approval. Cadence and Joshua are endearing characters, each seeking to bring healing to a broken world, no matter the cost. Tara Johnson has penned an exciting, romantic tale that also highlights a little-known and sinister aspect of Civil War history. All Through the Night is a memorable novel not to be missed!
