This review is from: Iron Branch: A Civil War Tale of a Woman In-Between (Kindle Edition)
This book will surprise you. Abita Carter, the part-Choctaw narrator, tells her story of love and personal strength in the midst of war in a way that reminds the reader of the power of place and circumstance--power, but not destiny. This story is chock-full of natural history as well as human history, but at base it is, purely and simply, a love story. It turns out that love is pretty powerful stuff.
