"The author provides a fascinating afterword in which she sets the facts and the many real-life characters in the novel in context and includes a bibliography featuring titles about Barton, Andersonville, and the Civil War. (Fiction. 10-14)"
A lovely story, rendered in spare prose by a major writer of historical fiction, Rinaldi's (Girl in Blue, 2001, etc.) tale takes place in Georgia in 1864.
