    Another masterpiece written by Carrie, taking place during my favorite historical period to read, the Civil War I loved the rich historical detail in the book What a beautiful story of overcoming I truly felt as though I was at Shirley Plantation observing all that took place A smoothly flowing story I do wish it had been a full length book though I recommend to all.
