I found this book to be enlightening. The author tells her perspective of being a child during the civil war and coming of age during the reconstruction period. She gives an intelligent assessment of being a woman in the deep south. Among other issues, it expresses her opinions of the political situation of the post Civil War period. Throughout the story her pride in being from the south is demonstrated. She gives her perspective on the African American society. It is my opinion that although she uses the terminology of the era, she expresses a respect and admiration for the African American as both slaves and a free people. She talks of the hardships the slaves endured, and the confusion that reigned in the south following the war. The latter half of the story speaks of her work in the temperance movement of the late 1800's. The format for copying these books often make them hard to read. I only found one small section where I could not make sense of what was copied.If you enjoy journals,diaries and memoirs like I do, it is a good read.Was this review helpful?
