A touching story that addresses the aftermath of the Civil War in terms of the loss of so many young men for reasons that no longer seemed as compelling as they once did It is told largely from the points of view of Carrie McGavock the owner of a home that was turned into a hospital during the tragic battle at Franklin Tennessee and Zachariah Cashwell a Confederate sergeant who was taken there after the battle Most of the characters are very well developed I was particularly taken by the descriptions of this senseless battle and its immediate aftermath but the story did tend to lag a bit in the middle Overall it is still a good read and I recommend it for fans of southern literature and historical fiction My thanks to the folks at the On the Southern Literary Trail group for giving me the opportunity to read and discuss this and many other fine books

The premise of this book had great potential as it's based on the true story of Carrie McGavock whose plantation home Carnton was confiscated as a battle hospital during the Civil War's bloodiest conflict the Battle of Franklin in 1864 Through the tragedy Carrie who was already having hardships of her own including the deaths of three children and a marriage slowly eroded by grief finds strength in offering aid to dying soldiers love by caring for Zachariah Cashwell who has received a grave injury and purpose by spending her after war life having 1500 soldiers exhumed from the battlefield and buried in her family plot which she maintained until her death With such great material and a strong heroine who surely deserves recognition I expected from this book which is still a worthy read 35 stars June Selection On The Southern Literary Trail
