My Take: The Civil War era has always fascinated me and I am always interested in what type of angle an author will take when they write a story. Dionne has taken a different angle and has chosen to focus on people as just being people and not North, South, Slave or Free. We are along for the journey as Beth learns this lesson from her grandmother Greta. Greta teaches Beth that everyone deserves to be helped whether they are friend or foe. There is also a touch of romance and everyone likes that. I would recommend this book if you like quilts, the Civil War, Christian Romances.
