This is an excellent story, told from a different perspective on the Civil war.
I especially appreciated hearing the story from the perspective of those caring for the wounded. How overwhelming it was for the doctors and nurses as they cared for the wounded and dying soldiers. Their personal lives being entertwined with each other as they served. This story truly captured the sights and sounds of the Civil war for me.
She captured the personalities of the characters very well. She used the appropriate inflections for the story.
When Phoebe had to make the choice to shoot Julia's abductor, even though she didn't want to kill him, she had to make the decision to do so in order to save Julia's life.
A very well written book with good character development and progresion of story.
This is an excellent story set during a difficult time in America. I would highly recommend this story to my friends and have done so already.
I loved Aunt Batty and her love of books the most. She is definitely the glue that holds this story together in my opinion.
She brings the characters to life, giving them each a distinct personality and identity
Oh yes, I didn't want to put it down, or turn it off in this case.
I will listen to this story again for sure!
I love the narrator. She got the accents perfect, making the story come alive.
Her narration brought each character in the story to life, giving them a very distinct and individual identity
Yes, I could have if time would allow.
I didn't want the story to end. I felt connected to the characters in the story. The author did an excellent job of developing the characters. My grandmother worked as a welder during WWII. She became a master welder. After the war, she lost her job but always remembered the experience with fondness. I felt connected with the time and people in this book. Lynn really brought this time frame to life.
I just finished listening to this book after fast forwarding through the last half. The author seems too focused on the sexual tensions between the characters. I will not be purchasing anymore of this author's books.
