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.

"Excited about setting foot into Yankee (read: enemy) territory, Katherine gradually comes to learn the truth behind their trip. Katherine's narration, enriched by vignettes in which the young Rebel recasts her problems as those of a Confederate general, is credibly naïve without seeming precious, while the Civil War narratives Katherine constructs add texture and weight, keeping this from becoming another maudlin child-narrated coming-of-age story." (Publishers Weekly)
