"I love this book! The great-granddaughter of Robert E. Lee, Anne Carter Zimmer has taken a faded little notebook full of Lee family chat and recipes, added months of research, and dished up an insider's glimpse of the great Confederate general 'at home.' She also gives us an illuminating portrait of the Lee family before and after the Civil War. (Jean Anderson)"
"Delving deeper than the usual 'who married whom' and 'whose daddy did what,' Zimmer explores how the Lees lived their daily lives, focusing on the foods they ate and how they ran their homes. Even more interesting, Zimmer provides some light gossip and shares a few intimate details of the Lees' domestic lives, which gives the reader refreshing insight into their human frailties.
