Short, Sweet Story of the Civil War
on August 12, 2017
With the Civil War raging all around them, Carrie Bishop, her aunt, and brother move into a cave for safety and to prevent soldiers from taking all their goods while her father fights in the Confederate Army. She and her brother find a wounded Union soldier and try to help him. As his condition worsens, Carrie realizes she must get help, even if it means putting herself in danger.
This was a short, sweet story that would have been better if the characters and the romance had been better developed. I really didn’t feel the love between the two main characters. The only grammatical mistake I found was “who” used when “whom” was needed. I wondered at the army sending Adam home on a train because he was near death. If he was that sick, how did he make it home? Overall, however, I enjoyed the story and wished it were longer.
