What a great book. My family listened to this on our trip back from visiting the grandparents and we were all listening intently. It is the story of a young boy and how his life changes due to the Civil War and its effect on his family. It is just a great snapshot of the 1860's. The audio is six hours long which was perfect for our 8 hour car ride. The author is Irene Hunt.
