‘Sing for Us’ is one of those books that I did not want to end, and if I were able, would have given more than 5 stars. Totally hooked, I could well imagine myself amongst the wounded men at the Confederate Hospital. As a former carer, there were times when I could have easily slipped into Letha Bartlett shoes.

I never like writing a synopsis of a story, as I don’t like spoiling for others. Based on a true story and without giving too much away... Letha Bartlett and her gentle touch brings comfort and courage to the soldiers in her care. When Granville Pollard enters the ward, Letha is captivated not only by his cultured bearing, but by his singing voice. A man who was emotionally and physically crippled, having lost his fiancée and both of his feet.

This is the first book that I have read by Steven Wise and it will not be the last. I received this ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

During the dying days of the Civil War, Letha Bartlett lovingly tends to the wounded in a Confederate hospital in Richmond, Virginia. A widow herself, her gentle touch and fiercely protective personality bring comfort and courage to the soldiers in her care.
