"It’s a stellar depiction of life during the Civil War and offers an interesting and captivating history that reads like an impossible love story rather than a true excerpt of life in 1862. Even if you weren’t interested in history before you will certainly leave this book with a better understanding and appreciation of life and love during the Civil War."

"An invaluable, informative, and welcome addition to community, college, and university library 19th Century American History collections in general, and American Civil War supplemental studies curriculums in particular, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Love and Valor: Intimate Civil War Letters Between Captain Jacob and Emeline Ritner" is also readily available in a digital book format."

"It would be easy to discount this work as simply another gathering of material about Civil War military history. It is so much more. Because we have Emeline’s answering letters to Jacob’s, it is a rare look at domestic history in this time in a woman’s own voice. We hear her fears and joys firsthand. We also have abolitionist history, social history, medical history, and so much more. This is truly a gold mine for researchers!"
