Titles By Andrea Boeshaar
Carrie Ann Collier has been a newlywed for nineteen blissful days--as blissful as life can be in the midst of war, that is. Soon that war will take a toll she never expected. When her new husband, Peyton, goes missing during battle, she refuses to believe he is dead and must find a way to move forward with everyday life in the face of fear.
As Carrie struggles with how to welcome her estranged sister, Margaret, back into her life, another new arrival appears on her doorstep--her husband’s best friend, and rebel officer, Eli. Wounded and bitter, Eli is nonetheless committed to keeping his promise to Peyton: take care of the Collier women, no matter what. But to Carrie, he’s a painful reminder of her lost love.
Then unexpected news makes Carrie wonder if miracles do happen. If Carrie infiltrates the enemy once again, she might find out what really happened to the love of her life. Will Eli be able to keep his promise to keep her safe? Can they forgive each other if promises are broken?
As fans of Boeshaar’s books have come to expect, Too Deep for Words is a meticulously researched novel. Readers are taken directly into the heart of the realities of the Civil War and reminded how, even in the darkest circumstances, faith in Christ offers hope.
To onlookers, Carrie Ann Bell Collier might appear to be the dutiful wife, sitting at her unconscious husband’s bedside. But she feels like a hypocrite. Instead of trusting her intuition, she allowed herself to believe Peyton was dead. And then she fell in love with his best friend, Eli Kent.
Except, Peyton wasn’t dead, and now Carrie will do anything to keep him alive.

CSS Lieutenant Colonel Elijah Kent has loved Carrie Ann since he met her a year ago. However, now that Peyton is alive, he promises Carrie he will not continue to pursue her. With Peyton near death, Eli finds it difficult to completely forget her and their plans for the future. But he does his best to focus on the ultimatum that General Ulysses S. Grant offered him.
USA Colonel Peyton Collier awakens to intense pain and utter confusion. Where was he? Why did his body hurt so badly? His leg, his back…his head. What was his name? His rank? Why couldn’t he recall?
And who was the stern-looking female standing over him with a hypodermic needle in her hand?
