Summary, etc.: "Two Southern sisters, disguised as men, who join the Confederate Army--one seeking vengeance on the battlefield, the other finding love"--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 January #1
    The sesquicentennial of America's biggest and bloodiest conflict has reignited interest in all aspects of the Civil War, including the role women played on both the home front and on the battlefield. One of the more intriguing statistics to emerge is that there were approximately 400 documented cases of women serving as combatants between 1861 and 1865. The Hepinstall sisters have taken this historical fact and woven a novel around a pair of sisters who, for very different reasons, disguised themselves as men and joined the Confederate army. When Libby's husband is mortally wounded at Antietam, she vows to avenge his death by killing at least one Yankee for every year of his life. Refusing to let Libby fend for herself in a world of men and mayhem, older sister Josephine follows her into the fray. As the two struggle to conceal their gender, Libby (Thomas) grows increasingly erratic, while Josephine (Joseph) finds herself physically and emotionally drawn to a fellow soldier.
