It was November 1863, and Captain David Reynolds of the Seventeenth Pennsylvania Cavalry was fully prepared to die. Someone had once told him that dying was quite painless. He didn’t believe it, though he secretly hoped it was true as he and his men prepared to ride into chaos and horror. The battle of Mine Run had begun. Jennifer Winston could hear the booming sounds of cannon fire miles away from her Virginia home. She knew that the war had begun two years ago but had been insulated from it all by her father. Little did she know that her life was about to irrevocably change, and she would be tested to the limits of her courage and endurance for a man―a man who was the enemy.

Jenny's Passion is the first book I have read by Diane Wylie, it won't be the last. This book was very well written and above all it felt authentic from the romance between the leads to the horrors of the civil war.

Hero Captain David Reynolds (loved the name, too often we never get common names for male characters) is a union soldier fighting the Rebs in Virginia when he is badly wounded. His horse saves him from further injury by taking him far from the battle. He is discovered by lovely Jenny Winston who lives on a nearby plantation with her widowed father and half brother.

Jenny is a natural healer and even though she knows that David is her enemy she feels compelled to treat his wounds. The two form a fragile bond and Jenny finds herself drawn even more to David.

David is a truly honorable man in every way. He is incredibly grateful to Jenny but knows he must return to his unit and he worries that a rebel band could find him in the small deserted cabin. When he tries to find his unit he is attacked and beaten by a rebels and it is Jenny who saves his life at much risk to her own.

Jenny takes David to the slave quarters to be tended by a healer there. Jenny is now quite attached to David and he is to her also. It is in this setting that David befriends the slaves and he does a truly noble deed there. He tells the slaves of the Underground Railroad and he invites them to find him in Philadelphia after the war so that he can further help them. Jenny is a typical southerner and so is her father, blithely unaware that slaves truly want their freedom. They are product of their culture and there were times I was angry with Jenny because she could not see the right of the North, especially when it came to slavery. In many ways she is a sheltered miss, and this is the authenticity that runs throughout this novel. She acted as a gently brought up southern lady would.

Jenny and David have a passionate loving relationship but honorable David knows he must return to his unit. This causes no end of strife between him and Jenny. I totally could sympathize with David, and in many ways Jenny would not have loved him as much if he were not such an admirable man but this war causes people to choose sides and Jenny is at heart a southerner.

The novel takes so many twists and turns but always a constant is David's love for Jenny. I never doubted his feelings for an instant. Jenny is torn about her feelings for David, she loves him but he is fighting against her countrymen and she now has experienced the hardship of war causing further problems in their relationship.

These leads have to overcome great obstacles. This book is realistic in its treatment of war and veterans; post traumatic stress is addressed along with bitterness and anger. The beautiful thread that runs through this story is that the leads do not give up on each other. Also it was wonderful to see Jenny's transformation from a genteel southern girl to a woman of substance who changed her views about so many southern traditions. This is a five star book and I look forward to reading other tales by this author.

When I started reading "Jenny's Passion", the first words were, "Captain David Reynolds...." and I thought, I know this name! That's because he was a minor character in "Lila's Vow". As the story unfolded, I learned more about David and Jennifer and how they came to be together and their relationship with Jack and Lila. Ms. Wylie kept the story interesting by taking certain events from both books and telling that story through another's eyes, but yet kept their individual plot lines. She also had just enough on the history of the Civil War and the love story of Jenny & David as well as other conflicts during that time. Another great job by Diane Wylie!

Next up on my Amazon Kindle is "Adam's Treasure" also by Diane Wylie.

I love all stories dealing with the Civil War, the times, the struggles and the romance.

This is a great romance story that takes place during the Civil War. It is well-written and keeps the reader engaged until you have completed the book. I liked the characters and the fact that you can enjoy the story whether you are in favor of the North or the South.

It is childish in many respects. And the there is no logical build up to events-characters just appear out of no where when their presence is needed to move the story along.

Diane Wylie obviously writes of a time in history she loves--the American Civil War. Jenny's Passion is the quintessential story of opposites attract--Captain David Reynolds, a Northern officer, and Jenny Winston, daughter of the Confederacy.

Jenny saves David's life after he's severely wounded in battle and has unintentionally wandered several miles away from the battlefield. David, devoted to the Northern cause, has achieved high rank and respect from his men but is also concerned about his growing aggression during fighting. He feels his humanity slipping away. The Southern lady, the enemy, protects him and nurses him back to health with the aid of her family's slaves. During that long process, David and Jenny talk and grow to know each other at the most basic level, not in a social setting but as they share with each other the truths of their lives.

Though it would be easier for him to hide out the rest of the war in safety on her plantation, David returns to the battlefield after asking Jenny to marry him. She refuses him not because she doesn't love him but because she realizes they are on different sides of this war and any connection between them, at this point in time, would be impossible. Through weeks of waiting and fighting in horrendous battles, neither lose their love for the other.

David is ultimately captured and imprisoned in the infamous Andersonville Prison. Ms. Wylie has written an exciting, rash, poised-on-the-edge-of-your-seat scene that brings together Jenny and her father with David's father. And this isn't even the end of the story.

Jenny's Passion is everything you want in an historical novel. Accurate history, exciting action, and a beautiful love story. Love that the characters will endure any hardship to preserve. Ms. Wylie's Secrets and Sacrifices, also a wonderful Civil War novel, was the first of her books I'd read, and this novel doesn't disappoint. Jenny's Passion is a larger-than-life novel, and at the same time it's a lovely, down-to-earth, human love story.
