A spellbinding journey!
Trapped on the battlefield and badly wounded, Pvt. Ransom MacTavish consoles a dying officer by reading to him the letters of his fiancee, Elizabeth, a wealthy Charleston lady.
Stranded alone when the officer dies, the only comfort Ransom finds is in Elizabeth's letters. His has never known words so tender.
When the fever of his wounds takes his mind, Ransom dreams of Elizabeth, and each day he lives, he lives for her.
How far would you go for love?
After the war, although he is penniless, Ransom comes home determined to win Elizabeth's heart, but soon must compete with a wealthy suitor while evading a lustful widow and a sheriff with a tendency to shoot people.
"Why do I have to work so damn hard just so somebody will love me?"
Ransom's only hope is the bond of a spirited pregnant teenager and the eccentric wisdom of a crusty Civil War veteran.
If you could sum up Some Glad Morning in three words, what would they be?
Interesting southern odyssey
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The ending was too good to be true, too pat.
What about Janet Metzger’s performance did you like?
She clearly differentiated between characters, such as mountain dialect to Charleston drawl. I would listen to other books narrated by her.
If you could rename Some Glad Morning, what would you call it?
Odyssey of a Tenant Farmer.
Any additional comments?
There were several interesting and unique characters.
