Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning author Rosemary Wells lays bare the senseless devastation of war in this stunning novel. As the Civil War breaks out, India, a young Southern girl, summons her sharp intelligence and the courage she didnt know she had to survive the war that threatens to destroy her family, her Virginia home, and the only life she has ever known. A timeless heroine of inspiring drive and bravery, India holds on to her dream of forging a career in science, unheard-of for a woman, in the face of battle, starvation, and tragic loss. Rarely has the Southern perspective on the war been told so even-handedly for young adults as in this meticulously researched, poignant, and riveting novel.

Synopsis:

An award-winning author lays bare the senseless devastation of war in this stunning novel that tells the story of one brave Southern girl's struggle to survive the Civil War.

Synopsis:

When the Civil War breaks out, life in the South is transformed and nothing remains the same. India Moody must summon the courage she didnt know she had to plunge into one of the wars most tragic and terrifying events—the Battle of Antietam, known in the South as Sharpsburg—in order to get medicine to her desperately sick father. As she struggles for survival during the Unions brutal occupation, India gets an education in love and loss, the senseless devastation of war, and the triumph of hope in the face of despair.
