“Marvelous characters, impeccable research, and wonderful writing combine to provide readers with another fabulous read from the pen of Diana Lee Johnson. THE WRONG SIDE OF LOVE sends readers into the last days of the Civil War, into the heart of Virginia, as well as into the lives of Matthew and Brenna, two people touched by the horrors of war and wanting desperately for it to end. Brenna dreams of being a doctor, only the war keeps her from attending the women's medical school in the North. Matthew's family is torn asunder by the war, one brother fighting with the North the other with the South. He honors a promise to his dying mother, only to the point where he must abandon it in order to find his captured brother.
Dramatically written, this poignant tale will touch your heart. Diana Lee Johnson has penned another winner. I can't wait to read her next book.”

Diana Lee Johnson considers herself a Virginian, first, last and always, though she was born in Washington, D.C. She grew up and still lives in Northern Virginia. She found she loved to write poetry at the age of six, and it snowballed from there. With a high-pressure job in local government purchasing, she relaxes by writing, and doing the historical research it takes to assure accuracy.
Nineteenth century America is her favorite era, though Diana is fascinated by history from all over the world and most any time period. Her first novel, Too Late for Tomorrow, a Civil War mainstream, was published in 1999. Her second was a time-travel, but with Civil War ties called Waltz in Time. Diana tries to let the reader see the movie she sees in her head as romance, mystery, danger, and humor carry her to other places and times.
