This book was a slower read than I had hoped, but it was a good story. I’d give it 3 1/2 stars if I could do halfsies! I learned a lot about what life might have been like as a Civil War soldier, what life might have been like as a slave during the Civil War, and the many atrocities that occurred during the war.
It’s a genius story about the father from Little Women, so it interweaves characters that many of us know and love. It makes me want to re-read Little Women!
It would definitely be a good book club book, as there are lots of issues that spark conversation about the characters and life in various places in the country during the Civil War.
