The War Rages On by Cecelia Schmidt
Overview
Grace Johnson is a 16-year-old Christian girl living during the Civil War era. Time and time again, her faith is tested as she and her family encounter many difficult trials. Her father not being a Christian complicates matters, especially when a preacher’s son named David asks for Grace’s hand in marriage. Her mother is a constant encouragement to her daughter as she discovers that through all of life’s trials, God is faithful. Grace realizes that she needs to trust the Lord in all things and do what is right no matter the circumstance.

Review
“This is a beautiful story of love and courtship set against the backdrop of the hatred and bigotry of the Civil War. The recurrent themes of the grace and forgiveness of Christ are woven throughout with the characters modeling this in the midst of great persecution. In this timeless message Cecelia teaches us that hardship and tragedy are tools that our loving God uses to mold us as part of His perfect plan. I read the entire book in one sitting–it drew me in.”

The War Within by Cecelia Schmidt
Overview
Grace and David Carver have been happily married for over a year. When the Simms, a young black couple, move to the area, the Carvers reach out and are able to help them start a new life after a lifetime of slavery. However, a serious threat has arisen, which will change both the Simms’ and Carvers’ lives forever: the Ku Klux Klan. Grace must learn to accept God’s sovereign plan for her life—the good and the bad—and that He alone gives the strength to forgive others.

Review
"A good piece of historic fiction is the one that transports the reader into another time. This one did not disappoint. Cecelia demonstrates her matured voice through a story that brought to life both the horrors of the Ku Klux Klan's hatred and violence and the joys of freedom from slavery. Overall, I felt this book was even better than the first, eliciting a wider range of emotions while retaining an overarching theme of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
