Praise

“A Fascinating and lively narrative”— The Christian Science Monitor
 
“Thoroughly fascinating. . . . belongs on the bookshelf of all Civil War enthusiasts, right next to the biographies of Ulysses S. Grant, Jefferson Davis, and Mary Lincoln.”— Jay Winik, author of April 1865 and The Great Upheaval 
 
“Using letters, books and other historical documents, Berkin paints a lively and empathetic picture of these women’s lives.”— St. Petersburg Times
 
“A well written, highly accessible exploration of marriage and the cult of true womanhood as it played out in the lives of three southern women. Berkin’s fascinating case studies . . . reveal the complex interplay out in the lives of southern women of the Civil War era.”— Civil War Book Review
