While I had heard the name and knew it to be a terrible place this book gave the horrid details. Born and raised in the old south I wish it were not true, but it is. The amazing thing is that the author really lived through it all. An detailed account of a man who went through Andersonville and in the end was saved by friends who cared. This is a book we should all read or listen to as a part of our history. This book also brought out the importance of keeping a personal journal so that history will not be lost.
I enjoy the Stephanie Plum stories. we downloaded this one t listen to on a car trip and we both enjoyed it. My wife reads the hard copies so she is up for it. Next road trip in March--another one out bty hen?
I enjoyed the book, and am now listening to the sequel. The "but" relates to the predictability of some of the situations that develop. You say to yourself no, don't go there but sure enough they do. I still recommend the book. You find yourself wondering how this situation will eventually work it's way out and there are some surprises so go for it!
