This book gives a good overview of women's lives in the South during the Civil War. The author makes extensive use of diaries and letters of women in all social classes to show the affects of the war on women's lives. A must read for anyone interested in women's lives during the Civil War.

The book included thoughts from many southern women of the time. Many of them famous and a few mentioned were not as memorable. This account gives the reader a chance to see what was important to these women and their needs.
