Exceptionally written. Author keeps you 'in' the action. Paints the picture well. Books typically depict men in war, to depict women in such a vivid manner is a tribute to the author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is an unusual novel about the marvelous ways which women gave comfort and love during the civil war, an ode of love as responsibility in the care of others. While many books chronicle the adventures of males during this war, this is the first I have seen to get to the heart of the woman as homemaker,caregiver, and patriot. It is a book you will remember and ponder long after reading. The characters are diverse and stimulating. As fine a work of historical fiction as I have seen. It has everything from sexual abuse, to burying of body parts after surgery, to helping slaves to get north,to family conflicts. Throughout there is the heroism of women. I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Peggy Ullman Bell's second book does NOT disappoint! This is an excellent historical fiction from the author of 'Psappha, a Novel of Sappho,' and will be noticed! Well written, vivid, accurate, and a fascinating, exciting read. A most enjoyable story of a young woman's coming of age. Ms. Bell's writing in this book, as in 'Psappha', takes you there and you can watch the story unfold! Hope to hear a LOT more from this Excellent author.
