Toward the end of the book read only a few pages at a time ... did not want it to end.
What courage for a woman in 1860's, unheard of having her own business. She never gave up on anything !
How proud Linda must be to come from such a heritage.
Waiting on next book! Hurry!
With twists at every turn, Linda Sittig does not disappoint. This historical fiction is loosely written about her great grandmother who came to Philadelphia from Ireland determined to be a business woman running her own factory. No small feat in the 1860’s. Ellen Cavanah, the main character, was the one credited for having the idea of blending wool with cotton and then creating a cloth that would stand up to wet weather; not be ‘shoddy’, an inferior wool that was used in the confederate army.
Her wool blend went on to be used for Union soldier’s uniforms and as blankets in hospitals.
Linda Sittig’s novel creates the fictional dream and with the combination of love story and tension on every page one cannot stop reading. I greatly enjoyed this book. I bought the kindle version and didn’t know till the end there was a glossary and table of contents. Somehow I wish that had been explained to me in beginning. But that did not detract from my enjoyment of the book.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction, stories of the Civil War or stories of strong women.
