An epilogue, an author s note, and a bibliography conclude this thoroughly researched and enjoyable historical novel."--"Booklist""Claire comes across as a strong-willed individual who is not afraid to think for herself. A good choice for fans of historical fiction, particularly the Civil War era."--"School Library Journal""
