This story gave me "the feels", as my daughters say. I can't imagine the horrors of war, but I can imagine that finding your place afterward must be difficult, if even possible. I think many soldiers who fought against their own, other Americans, sometimes neighbors, never did find a post-war-normal.
I followed this as a WIP, and I was drawn into every chapter. Reading it as a whole here in the library, I must say I noticed so many nuances I'd missed before.
I recommend this story, highly. Don't be afraid of it because of the subject matter - it is not a "war story", but rather, a healing one.
Thank you, Tracy, for recommending this story and your classifcation of it is spot-on. It's not a war story but it is a story, as you pointed out, of someone finding their place in society and in their family again after the Civil War. I appreciate that you left your thoughts here.
