Overview

*Beyond All Price is a historical novel, based on the life story of Nellie M. Chase, a Union nurse during America's Civil War. She was strong enough to escape from an abusive relationship and resourceful enough to find a job as wardrobe mistress for a theater. The actress with whom she shared a room in a squalid tenement took an overdose of opium in an effort to escape a life of prostitution. Nellie joined the Union Army, because life in the midst of a war seemed safer than the one she had been living.
*
She found a home with the 100th Pennsylvania Regiment, known as "The Roundheads" because of their religious beliefs. Her skill and compassion led one of her patients to write, "Even here, amid the roar and carnage, was found a woman with the soul to dare danger; the heart to sympathize with the battle-stricken; sense, skill, and experience to make her a treasure beyond all price."
*
She was equally at home managing a southern plantation full of abandoned slaves, a battlefield operating station, or a 600-bed military hospital. After the war, her deep-seated need to dedicate her life to a worthy cause continued to drive her efforts until she faced an enemy more lethal than war.

Meet the Author

Carolyn Schriber received her Ph.D. in Medieval History from the University of Colorado. After she retired from a position as a history professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, she turned her attention to her second love, the history of America's Civil War. She offers a fresh perspective and a valuable new approach to some of the issues of the Civil War.
*
Her previous book, A Scratch with the Rebels, illuminated the depth and diversity of perspectives from both sides of the conflict by examining the impact of a single relatively unknown battle in South Carolina.
*
Beyond All Price, a historical novel, takes a more personal view. In it she examines the roles of women during the war, the horrors of medical treatments, and the problems presented by newly-freed slaves.
*
Dr. Schriber now lives near Memphis, Tennessee, where she shares her home with her supportive husband, Floyd Schriber, and four opinionated cats.

    I would read again!

    I am a Southern girl, so this is the first book I have ever read of the Civil War that was from the North's point of view. I really liked it and had a hard time putting it down.
