    One thought on “Beyond All Price”

    1. This novel read more like a history book and a very boring one at that. I skipped entire paragraphs just to get through and I finished it thinking I hadn't missed a thing. As much as I tried to like Nellie, I just didn't. She was hasty and emotional and childish through most of the book, always "holding back tears" or "biting her tongue." I didn't get her at all and as she was the heroine of the book, it was disconcerting to not be able to connect with her on any level. The rest of the character [...]

    2. I thought she made the nurse unbelievably stupid about men. I realize this was a women in a man's world but she kept on making things worse for herself with those that wanted her out of the picture. Maybe it was just the lackluster writing. I just read it to finish. Not that I was interested in any of the lives here.

    3. This was an extremely enjoyable story based on the life of Nellie Chase, a well known and much loved nurse for the Union Army during the Civil War. I highly recommend this book, especially those who enjoy well researched historical fiction.

    4. Every week I randomly download a free book from just to have something on the side to pass free time. Most of the time the free books are either okay or poorly written (I'm not complaining because they are free, but just stating my general consensus). Therefore, I was quite surprised when I found this little gem. This book is an easy read and I was able to easily sympathize with the main character. The details in the book are very descriptive and the author highlights the book with many histori [...]

    5. Beyond All Price is a five-by-eight inch paperback book. The cover has a pleasant design portraying a gun battery at Fort Donelson, Tennessee. As Civil War fiction, this book presents a well-researched chronicle of Nellie Chase’s career as matron and nurse to the 100th Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Infantry Regiment.Nellie Chase existed. The 100th Pennsylvania Regiment existed. This fictional account of Nellie’s efforts gives the reader an insight to the early years of the Civil War; as the [...]

    6. This is the fictionalized of Nellie Chase, a real woman who served as a nurse during the Civil War. She originally volunteered with the 100th Pennsylvania Regiment to escape her past, which was considered scandalous back in those days, but today would barely raise an eyebrow. She had little training as a nurse, but she was a fast learner, and her organizational skills helped to develop the veteran hospitals that we have today.I really enjoyed this story of Nellie, and I loved that she was a cat [...]

    7. Great historical fiction of a young lady, Nellie Chase, from Maine who volunteers for the the 100th Pennysylvania Voluntary Infantry in the Cival War as a matron nurse. She has no experience when she begins but earns a reputation as an extremely capable nurse despite her background. Her struggle to be recognized and respected shows amazing strength in a setting which does not welcome females amongst their ranks. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned many things about the civil war which i k [...]

    8. Historical fiction. This was about a volunteer nurse named Nellie Chase. During the civil war she claimed to be 25 years old, actually she was only 19, and literally talked them into letting hergo along with the troops as the matron. Her medical experience was only what she had learned fromher grandmother about what herbs to use for this and that. She ended up caring for the seriously injured, aiding with amputations out in the field, and it was just an incredible story. AfterI finished the book [...]

    9. This is the story of young woman who becomes volunteer "nurse" in military during the Civil War. The story was a bit slow going until towards the end. The characters were well developed and realistically flawed, as we all are. Overall it was worth spending this time reading historical fiction, because I am very weak in history. Story + history was palatable in this case.

    10. Very good historical novel. Based on Civil War history. Enjoyed following the main character as she followed a group of former farmers into the Union Army down through the East coast into Georgia. Good details without being boring. Characters are well developed.

    11. This is an historical novel based on true events but fictionalized in order to add dialogue and connect events together. It is an interesting subject, but the telling of it here came out dry and rather boring.

    12. The book was more than okay, especially for a free Kindle book. However, many dialogues read as if they are examples from self-help books, with bits of wisdom phrased in a way that makes them seem fake in speech.

    13. Fictional account of a real-life Civil War nurse. What is known of Nelli Chase, was gathered from letters of soldiers who were cared for by her.

    14. History of the civil war but in novel form. Highlights one woman as she nurses her way through the war.

    15. I really wound up liking this book, even though it was kind-of hard work to get through. it helps to know that it is historical fiction, based on a real person.

    16. another historical fiction that I find I enjoy. This one about the Civil War and a nurse Nellie Chase and the hardships she suffered as a female at the forefront of war.
