really liked it

This was one that I really wanted to win in the First Reads Giveaways and was thrilled when I actually won. Overall, i enjoyed the book a lot. The characters were well written and the story unique. I didn't feel like I had already heard another version of this story (as often happens with historical fiction). Gus was completely flawed but completely relatable and I really liked that she was not the typical shrinking violet as most Civil War wives are portrayed. My only criticism of the book is that at times the writing is choppy BUT it didn't distract from the story. I just felt like there could have had better transitions. All my historical fiction friends should enjoy this one!
