    1. Historical fiction books can be a little hit or miss for me. Sometimes I love them, others can be difficult to read. Women had it so tough in our past, so it is hard for me to stomach some of these books. However, I am a fan of Yolanda Wallace, so I decided to give this book a chance. I really enjoyed the beginning, but the book really lost momentum in the last third.The story is about Wil, who goes to see Fredrick Douglas speak. His passion, words and everything he stands for, is enough for Wil [...]

    2. That was sweet. Frankly, this book is not really my cup of tea. Historical is one of the least books that's appealing to me but thank God I took a chance.Well, it's a slow burn I guess everybody would already guess that since again it's a historical book.They've met after the first half of the book so if you're one of those who's easily bored, I don't think I can recommend this to you. The only thing that's good was after they've met. Everything happened so fast. Like love at first sight and aft [...]

    3. Although I am not an expert in the American Civil War, since I am Spanish, I found this book very interesting and thorough in their descriptions.The story mixes the discovery of sexuality in a difficult time for this subject. The two protagonists face a society that expect them to be dependent and submissive, in a secondary role. The romantic story between them, although I found it pretty sweet, has not a fundamental importance in the overall context of the book. As I said, this is more a story [...]

    4. I enjoy Historical Fiction a lot. It used to be the only genre I read. This one didn't quite hit the mark for me. It tried really hard. The main characters were given depth. There were great secondary characters as well. But overall something was missing. I didn't feel the overall chemistry between them. I don't think the author quite captured the mood of the times for one. Things came together way too easy for our mains for two. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in [...]

    5. I honestly like the way Yolanda Wallace spins a tale but this isn't her best work and makes you wanting more from the story

    6. I'm a sucker for f/f historical fiction, and when I saw this book was set in the American Civil War (one of my favorite time periods for historical fiction in general), I simply had to read it!Wilhelmina Fredericks listens to a speech by Frederick Douglass and feels compelled to join the Union army. Of course, doing so will mean that she has to disguise herself as a man and keep her identity hidden for the duration of the war, but Wil is prepared for almost anythinguntil she meets Clara Summers [...]

    7. Not sure what I was expecting with this one. I guess all my expectations are grounded on the excellent Firefly by Whitney Hamilton. Which is somewhat a similar book in context, just with so much more soul than this one.Also, it's worth mentioning that the protagonist only meet up by the middle of the book. I mean, don't get me wrong, books about individual journeys that serves to mature the characters to the point where they finally get together can be incredible. But they are also so hard to do [...]

    8. This is only the second book I have read by this author. The first I gave only two stars. After reading this book I have decided to go back and give the first a second read. I should probably start this review by saying I absolutely love historical fiction novels. A historical fiction that is also lesbian fiction… I couldn’t ask for anything more. However, this was not my favorite historical fiction for me it was really good. What I liked: A book about the Civil War without being blood, gore [...]

    9. I've read quite a bit of lesbian historical fiction and a lot of it seems to lean heavily on the romance while leaving a lot of the historical detail vague. This book has a great mix of both slow-burn romance and great Civil War detail coming from two unique female perspectives. There's the classic trope of a woman dressing as man to fight the good fight with Wilhelmina "Wil" Fredericks who cuts her hair and joins up to fight for the North in Philadelphia. After a nasty encounter with a hell-ben [...]

    10. *ARC provided by Netgalley and the Publisher for an honest review*This book is greator at least it could be. This is the first book by This author that I have read so I was a bit weary going in to it because I didn't know what to expect. From the first page of this book I knew that I was going to enjoy this story and I did for the most part.I fell in love with the historical fiction genre after reading Backwards to Oregon and I had the same feeling reading this book that I got reading this so I [...]

    11. You do not need to be a Civil War buff to enjoy this entertaining and well written story. Wil runs from societal expectations and struggles with her unrequited love for her friend. Posing as a Yankee fighting man is more difficult than she imagined. She works to build up her physical strength and finds an older mentor who protects her from the rough elements. Clara runs the farm while her brother and father are with the Tennessee Infantry. Though pursued by an eligible bachelor she cannot make h [...]

    12. Well, I mean it's not high art or anything, but it's also not unreadable. I'm not sure if that could be considered praise exactly, but working in its favor, I was at least interested enough in the story to enjoy reading it. While I'm not exactly sure I bought into Wilhelmina's inspiration to dress as a man and become Wil, a Union soldier, I did feel as though the first half of the book describing the war and its effects across the nation were very well done. There were definitely moments I found [...]

    13. Divided Nation, United Hearts is a keeper for its sincerity and very endearing love story and characters AND because it speaks to the heart more than the body. I am the first to admit that I am very old-fashioned, even stodgy, when it comes to love stories and this is just the kind I like to read and wish there was more of in lesfic. My only complaint is that I wish the two main characters would meet sooner, though it is compelling to see each of them separately before their lives begin to inter [...]

    15. Wow, I love this book! I am a huge fan of Civil War historical lesbian books and this one hits it out of the ball park. When I first read the synopsis, I thought I would enjoy the story, but I didn’t realize how much until I started reading it. I could not put the book down. It is an extremely fast read and the words flow quickly.There are two main characters—Wil and Clara. Wil is running away from her privileged life where political noncommitment is the norm in her family. Her father conduc [...]

    16. *ARC provided by Netgalley and the Publisher for an honest review*I love historical novels and this one did not disappoint in that aspect. It showed the time of the civil war very well and described the different roles women had. On the one hand a quite privileged young woman, who felt she needed to do more in to help her country and on the other hand a middle or lower class young woman who got stuck taking care of her families farm and younger siblings because her father and older brother joint [...]

    18. I liked it better when they had not met than after they did. The romantic development felt way too fast.

    19. This is one of those stories that made me run through a mixture of emotions. It was at times sad and tense but at other times joyful, beautiful and romantic. I found myself totally immersed in the story of Wil Fredericks, a woman who runs away to join the Union army disguised as a man and meets the woman of her dreams. Clara is a southerner but that is just one of the enormous obstacles in their way. Yolanda Wallace has managed to write a wonderful love story set against the worst of times. I lo [...]

    21. I rec'd an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. No synopsis necessary. In this historical romance main characters are Wilhelmina (Wil) and Clara and it is set in 1862 during the War between the States. I particularly liked the link with historical heavy-weight Frederick Douglass. An enjoyable story, it just seemed to end too quickly unlike many of Ms. Wallace's previous works. 3.5 stars.

    22. In the beginning I felt like the author was having the characters parrot quotes from historical figures at random places. It felt out of place and awkward in normal conversation. This book requires a lot in the way of suspending of disbelief, particularly when it comes to the reactions of other characters. Everything is tied up a little too neatly and quickly but it was a sweet, fast read. I liked Clara's portions more than Wil's and her brothers were well written, particularly the youngest (at [...]
