Spy of Richmond was just as great as the previous books. I didn't want to put it down as soon as I picked it up and begin reading.
The characters throughout all of these stories are compelling and richly developed. Although each book focuses on new characters, some of the characters from previous books will make an appearance. I love the characters that Jocelyn Green describes, and I feel as if I get to know them through reading.
The author does a good job of presenting a balanced picture of the people during this time of war. There were noble and brave people on both sides of the lines during the war, and Jocelyn Green does a good job portraying them.
Spy of Richmond- and indeed all of the books in this series- makes me want to read and read to watch the story unfold. But it also makes me want to hold on because I know I'll be sad to see it end.
I can definitely recommend this one with 5 stars. There are some pretty rough pictures painted of the deprivations of war and the inhumanity of some of those involved.

ABOUT THE BOOK
As Sophie's spy network grows, she walks a tightrope of deception, using her father's position as newspaper editor and a suitor's position in the ordnance bureau for the advantage of the Union. One misstep could land her in prison, or worse. Suspicion hounds her until she barely even trusts herself. When her espionage endangers the people she loves, she makes a life-and-death gamble.
Will she follow her convictions even though it costs her everything-and everyone-she holds dear?
