Oooh! I really liked this one. Annie is a caring and believable heroine and you genuinely feel for her. Having witnessed her first battle at Manassas at only 15, Annie is childish and overwhelmed... Throughout the book (and throughout her blunders) and the following war experiences, I could see Annie grow up.

I am a romantic at heart, so... my favorite was just the romaticism of the time period. Big petticoats, woman with ivory and lace fans, young gentleman officers in their dashing uniforms with shiny buttons... Thats what I relish. :D

The amazing research that went into this book is staggering. It is a work of fiction, but it is rooted in history. I think I will be reading more books by L.M. Elliot.
