This drove me crazy. I cannot understand why authors need to use gimmicks in their writing. All dialogue blended in with narrative as the author didn't use quotation marks. I had to keep going back, or pausing to re-read. I read to maybe the 3rd chapter, and it was actually getting interesting, but the headache it gave me wasn't worth the struggle.

Even though I'm not a big history lover, I really enjoyed reading this book about women during the Civil War. Actual accounts of the war are at the begining of each chapter, and then Adair Colley's story continues. I had a difficult time putting this book down and hated to see it end.

It was a little romance-y, but I still really enjoyed learning more about Missouri during the Civil War.

Absolutely wonderful read. Ever so worth each moment spent with these pages. Story well written and very engageing.It is suspense and thrilling and sad and love. It will show you what you could do if you put your mind to something. This story is about survival and living during a dangerous time and making it. But never knowing if making it would ever happen till it finally did. This is a beautiful story.
