Review: MY VICKSBURG by Ann Rinaldi

Tina Says… read and reviewed My Vicksburg by Ann Rinaldi for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

Claire and her family have been forced to move into a cave as Vicksburg and the surrounding area is being shelled by Union soldiers. Claire’s older brother, Landon, is a doctor for the Union army, while her father practices medicine with the Confederate army. Landon returns home for a brief visit with his family, bringing with him Robert, a Confederate soldier who he is treating and who is in some trouble of his own. Although Claire’s family had been affluent, now that there is a war food is scarce. While Claire does not bemoan the hardships that have befallen them, it is obvious that her way of life is dramatically changed.
