Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy is the true story of four women fighting for their countries during the Civil War. It's a stunning narrative compiled from personal letters, covert correspondence, and arrest records! The Civil War pit brother against brother, but as Karen Abbott eloquently proves through this book, it also pit sister against sister. This book has everything from Pinkerton spies to swords sewn into hoop skirts to messages hidden in elaborate hair styles. I loved this book and so will the history buff in your life.
