I LOVED this book! The impact of battles on folks living in the area had never occurred to me, and Jocelyn Green did an amazing job of researching diaries and other historical documents to ensure she stayed true to the horrors of war. The information at the back of the book about her research was as interesting as the book!
The characters in this book were multi-dimensional and fascinating to know. I really enjoyed the twists and turns of the relationships in the story. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

In the wake of shattered homes and bodies, Liberty and Bella struggle to pick up the pieces the battle has left behind.
