I’m really into the history of the American Civil War and I have to admit what first caught my attention about this book is that it mentions the aftermath of General Sherman’s march through Atlanta. I’m curious as to how the author portrays this. I might be giving this story a try in the near future regardless that it’s an historical romance.
