Book Description: Often compared to Gone with the Wind, Midwest Book Review called Noble Cause “a riveting piece of historical fiction.”
This is the tale of Colonel Alexander Hunter, a dauntless and daring Confederate cavalry officer, who, with his band of intrepid outcasts, becomes a legend in the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Inspired by love of country and guided by a sense of duty and honor, Hunter must make a desperate choice when he discovers the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect is the Union spy he vowed to his men he would destroy. Readers will discover the fine line between friends and enemies when the paths of these two tenacious foes cross by the fates of war and their destinies become entwined forever.
Author Jessica James uniquely blends elements of romantic and historical fiction in this deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer, “transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader’s bones.” Winner of numerous national awards, James has received critical acclaim for this page-turning story of courage, honor, and enduring love. Destined for an honored place among the classics of the American Civil War, Noble Cause is a book to read, and keep, and remember forever. Read more on Amazon.

“This is a beautifully written book capable of transporting you back in time to a war fought brother against brother; each equally willing to give their lives for their beliefs and the land they love. I found myself “riding with the heroine, feeling her conflicting emotions, at times as frustrated as much as the men in her life”. If you love history, if you love the English language, if you love romance, don’t miss this book!” ~ Cynthia Benefield, Amazon Reviews
