I recomend this series!

I read this whole series when I was a kid, and loved it. Centers on three characters during the civil war: Emily, a well-off union sympathizer, Gideon, a poor southerner, and Nat, a slave who dreams of freedom. The three storylines weave together seamlessly, mixing history and adventure. Great reading for both boys and girls (my brother struggled with reading, and he loved these books as much as I did).

I was absolutely taken by this wonderful book! I read this story as a child and became completely enthralled in the Civil War from then on. I also enjoy the spiritual aspect of the story. The historical fiction through several different perspectives creates a wonderful scope for what people (and children as well) went through during this time period!

A very good read of three views on the Civil War; this book is written through the eyes of Emily, a teen aged abolitionist who is living with her southern, slave holding relatives, Nat, a slave bent on running away, and Gideon, the second oldest of a family of southern 'dirt farmers'. I found this book had an interesting perspective on all sides of the war.
