“A Soldier’s Gift is the first book in Lynne St. James’s NEW Series, Beyond Valor. I don’t usually get into a lot of books featuring soldiers, but with Lynne St. James I knew I will get a good read. I didn’t expect however to get MORE though, yet I did with A Soldier’s Gift. This story was heartbreaking, sweet, and showed the kind of spirit soldiers have after getting injured. I found myself crying and cheering for Beth and Mac as well as for Beth’s daughter.” – Review by Marie’s Tempting Reads
