Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cornelia Greene is fed up with gossip about her mother. Caty Littlefield Greene was once a beautiful young bride who lifted the troops spirits at Valley Forge, but Cornelia knows that rumors of Catys past indiscretions hurt Nathanael Greene, Cornelias adored father. Yet Caty claims that shes just a flirt, and that flirting is a female necessity—a womans only means of power.

     Cornelias concern with her mothers reputation abruptly fades to the background when she learns that Nathanael Greene may not be her father. As she searches for the truth, she makes unexpected discoveries that lead her to a new understanding of love and family.

Synopsis:

An intimate portrait of a young Confederate woman discovering her strength and courage as the Civil War rages around her. Leigh Ann of Roswell is a touching story of family and independence by the acclaimed historical novelist, Ann Rinaldi.

Synopsis:

When the Yankees arrive in Roswell, Georgia, spunky Leigh Ann Conners places a French flag upon the familys mill. She hopes the Yankees will then spare the mill from destruction, but her actions have disastrous results. Sent north with the women and children who worked in the mill—all branded traitors for making fabric for Confederate uniforms—Leigh Ann embarks on a journey that requires her to find her own inner strength. Only then will she be able to rise above the war raging around her.

Synopsis:

Claire Louise Corbett and her Confederate family flee their home as Union soldiers shell their town of Vicksburg, Mississippi. They venture out from the safety of a cave only three times a day, when the Union army takes their meals at eight in the morning, noon, and eight at night. When Claire Louise discovers her brother, a doctor, tending to a Confederate soldier who is responsible for Robert E. Lees “lost order” (causing the South to lose the Battle of Antietam), she is forced to make a difficult choice between family and friends.
