Overview

Ruth Danson, a feisty seventeen-year-old Pennsylvania farm-girl abandons her family in the spring of 1863 to be with the man she loves, nineteen-year-old William Jay Lytell, a private with John Mosby's 43rd Battalion of Virginia Cavalry--the famed Mosby's Rangers. Through the lush panoramic beauty of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley and across the vast expanse of war-ravaged Virginia, Li'l Bud thunders across the pages in a maelstrom of cannon smoke and musket fire. Robert E. Lee and U.S. Grant; Phil Sheridan and George Custer; A.P. Hill and John Hancock are seen through the eyes of Li'l Bud and Jay as they fight and love through the killing years of the Civil War.

It is the heartbreaking story of sister against brother as Ruth rides against her brother David of the 116th Pennsylvania Infantry. In raids and skirmishes Li'l Bud encounters hometown friends in the Ringgold and 22nd Pennsylvania Cavalry blurring the lines between North and South. Amidst the flames and anguished cries as the Shenandoah Valley burns from Union torches, Li'l Bud, with a pair of Colt .44s and her faithful chestnut filly, Princess, will let nothing stand in the way of love in the arms of William Jay.

Li'l Bud is an easy and interesting read. Those readers who like fiction should be satisfied with Reynolds' new novel.

    An Amazing Civil War Novel- Must read

    I rarely write reviews, but in this case I can't help myself. L'il Bud, a southern woman falls in love with a Union Soldier during the turbulent Civil War period. Over the objections of family, L'il Bud follows her heart and 'the drum' to be with her love. This was so much better than the little woman who stayed at home on the plantation mooning over her corageous lover like in so many other Civil War stories. It had great historical accuracy, which is a blessing to someone who knows the period. Once you pick up this book you won't be able to put it down. I just hope there is a sequel, because I have to know what happens next!!
