Read from February 11 to 17, 2012

Jennifer Chiaverini does her research well and does an excellent job of weaving historical facts into the lives of her fictional characters. This story takes place during the Civil War (USA) and in particular the battle of Gettysburg. The men of Elm Creek have joined the union troops and the story unfolds as the men and women write to each other. I liked all of the characters in this story and learning about how the civil war affected the lives of people during the civil war era.
