Debut author Amanda C. Gable places the emphasis of this quietly moving novel...on the daughter's inner journey toward maturity (Publishers Weekly).

It's the 1960s in Marietta, Georgia, and 11-year-old Katherine McConnell has been raised to see the Civil War as the War of Northern Aggression. When her mother plans a business trip north, Katherine tags along, visiting historic battlefields along the way. But with each stop, her perspectives on the war, her mother, and her upbringing undergo drastic changes.

    " Set in the 1960s, Katherine, a Southern Confederate warbuff, and her mother embark on a vacation heading north and stopping at Civil War Battlefields along the way. Audiobook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 11/10/2013

    " I enjoyed this book much more than I expected. I'm not a big civil war buff, but the story of Kat and her mother were very well written and believable - I would recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Jo Atwood | 10/26/2013

    " I would compare this book to The Ya-Ya Sisterhood, only without the whimsey, or maybe just a different kind of whimsey. I was not so entertained. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay Waddell | 8/17/2013

    " Finally done. I knocked off a star because it just didn't hold my interest. I liked the parallel of war and the narrator's struggles, though.... "

    " I couldn't finish this book, it just didn't hold my interest. "

    " Wow. I totally didn't expect this book to be as good as it was. But, from the very first moment that I stepped inside the Confederate General's head, I was hooked. "

    " Really a 2 1/2 star rating. It is a very creative storyline. I have always been interested in the Civil War but I had a difficult time getting caught up in the present day story of Katherine's dysfunctional family life. "

    " I could have done without the imaginings of the "Confederate General." I am a fan of Civil War literature and this was a definite twist. I'm also a big fan of books set during the time of the Civil Rights Movement... so for me, this hit both interests. "
