Back in history, when the men left for war, the women were left behind to look after not only their families and their own work, but also that of their husbands, fathers, and son. Vulnerable, alone, this novel is a depiction of the courageous struggles facing southern women during the American Civil War.
Farms pillaged and stripped bear, entire towns destroyed, homes plundered, people murdered, women raped, and the extreme hunger people faced as food became scarce. Terror and horror plagued those left behind.
C.S. Harris has breathed life into a time long past, weaving together a brilliant recounting of the hardships and troubles for women and children, black and white alike. Each page of this compelling story kept me eagerly reading along. Heart-wrenching and bold, the author describes the horrors as well as the triumphs. For those who love this period of history, especially the American Civil War, this is a poignant rendering of what took place. Highly recommended.
