Poor Elizabet had to grew up knowing that she was basically illegitimate and that she was not as important as you would think. Back in the Civil Wars times illegitimate children were treated as nothings by most people. Yet she still yearns for a bit of a real life, including love and a family. She actually even spent time trying to help others. I loved the fact that she was a strong character despite the fact that she had grown up with no advantages. She is not afraid to face her problems and did not back down easily. Also the writing about the Civil War and the information provided was good. I feel like the book put a face on how some women may have actually dealt with this time period.
This is a must read for anyone !! Typically not my genre of what I read. I must say that I'm thrilled that I did. It's about Strength of a Women who had to overcome so much at a young age with who she was. It's about never giving up for what you believe in. In all that had happened since she was born she always had grace. Here is a few excepts that I loved and hope that you do as well.. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us. What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say. Acceptance may not be one of the seven heavenly virtues but, without it, the world can only be at war. I Highly recommend this book to anyone. I can't wait to read more of Debbie Zello's book.
